How to use brushes

OK had a request on how to use brushes and where to store them on your computer, so here goes my attempt to explain it LOL.
What you want to do is set up a separate folder for your brushes.  and download your brushes into that folder.  In PSP you can tell it what folder you want your brushes, when you pull them up that is.
It is under File, Preferences, File Locations.  Click on Brushes and click add.  Scroll till you find your folder.

Now to use brushes is very easy...looks hard but very easy.  Open a new image what ever size you want just  to start and learn making sure you have a color on the bottom layer...let's say Black.  Click on your brush tool and grab what ever brush you want.  Layer New Raster Layer and then using a contrasting color click on your new layer and you should have whatever your brush is on that new layer.  When changing to a different brush always remember to add a New Layer.  Was very hard for me to remember the new layer when I first started playing with brushes and frustrating too but don't give up!  Once you get the hang of it brushes are fun and add the right little something to your tags.
Hope this helps a little bit in understanding brushes.  If not leave me a comment and I will try and help you more if I can.

Hugs, Staci

Open your tube and move to where you like it.  Activate the bottom layer,
Selections Select All, Activate the tube layer, Image Crop to Selection.

Duplicate your tube and on the bottom tube layer I used Eye Candy Corona.
I used a color from the tube and just played with the numbers till I liked
it.  Then I used DSB Flux Blast. Left and Right twice at 20%. Then Effects,
Texture Effects Mosaic-Glass Number of columns/rows 50, Glass curvature 50,
Edge curvature 0, Grout width 2, Grout diffusion 50, Symmetric checked
and hit OK.

At this point I added my brush.  I used the tubes lightest flesh color and
a color from the outfit.  Activate your black layer, Layers New Raster
Layer and add your brush in the corner.  Duplicate it if necessary, then
duplicate again Image Mirror.  I then activated the black layer again,
using the outfit color and using the brush again but out a bit farther then
the first time.  Duplicate if needed.  Image Flip.  Layers Duplicate,
Image Mirror.
