Downloading & Installing Brushes

Click on the course materials link in the lesson to download your files.

In Finder (Mac) or Explorer (Windows), locate your Downloads folder. Unzip the course materials folder.

To unzip:

  • In Windows: Double-click on the file and then choose Extract All from the menu bar. Choose a location for the files (I usually choose the same folder where the Zip file is located). Click OK.
  • In Mac: Double-click on the file in the place you've downloaded it. It will automatically unzip to the same location as the Zip file.

Open Photoshop.

With your document open, select the Brush Tool in the Toolbar. (Note: If you don’t see it right away, it may be grouped with other brush tools. Hover your mouse over the tool, and hold down your mouse key until the list of tools shows up, then select the Brush Tool.)

In the Options bar, click on the Brush selector. In the menu, choose Load Brushes.

Navigate to the location where your brushes are kept, select your brush, and choose Open/Load. Your brush will be added to the bottom of the brush list.
