In this tutorial, you will learn how to create custom brushes and patterns in Photoshop CS4.

Creating your own brushes can be a huge timesaver if you will be using the same shape over an over. Rather than duplicating a layer, you can use Photoshop to create a custom brush or pattern. Start with a blank, transparent document and create your brush. Then go to edit>define brush and create a title. You can then use your brush or export it for further use. This is a good thing to know because you will want to frequently backup brushes you use often. Also, with this knowledge you can send brushes to your friends, transfer them from work to home, and upload them to brush sharing sites. Have fun and be creative.
