I've known how to make custom Photoshop brushes for a few years now and that now presents one problem - I'm still using the now inferior brushes I made years ago and want to go on a brush-making spree to help increase my digital painting speed with newer, better brushes.

Though I can never seem to figure out how to save them with my own settings already set when I choose it again later, Say I want to make leaves - I'd like to just choose my leaf and have all its dynamics I set earlier intact - having subtle colour, rotation and scatter variations, having it follow the direction I paint etc. Seems each time I load it I have to check and adjust these settings again which wastes a lot of time since I may want different settings for another later.
Photoshop's default ones seem to load with dynamics set to go (like it's Scattered Maple leaves brush) I just want to have my own behave the same upon loading Untitled-2.png

I got the idea when I saw the sample clip for this video tutorial http://www.thegnomonworkshop.com/store/pro...-to-Concept-Art I was actually considering buying that video tutorial, looks like it might help me out huh.gif For now though I just want my dynamics settings to load ready with my own brushes, any links or tutorials on how to save them so they load like that would be appreciated blush.gif

(assuming this is no different to CS3)

Basically, you enter the brushes-menu (the one where you choose stuff like scattering, color dynamics, etc) and then define the settings you wish to maintain. Now, after you're done, go up to the "Brush Presets"-tab. There, click somewhere into a blank spot in the brush-selecting-panel (your cursor should change to a bucket). You should get a dialog-box where you set a name for the brush. You can later on delete the original brush and save the ABR.

Hope that helps wink.gif

Maybe ... after defining the parameters of a brush , you can use the tool preset for your brushes , and it's very useful (it's .tpl file not .abr )

It's just another solution wink.gif

Forgive my late response, I admit I forgot about this topic when I thought maybe it was impossible to do tongue.gif

But thanks a lot both of you, and for that link too! I did a quick test one and followed the instructions and it seemed to create the same brush with all my set dynamics built in! Exactly what I wanted biggrin.gif
