Photoshop - Create your own custom brushes

Did you know you can create your own custom brush in Photoshop? This brush could be of any shape or even a photo of something allowing you to let your creative juices flow.
How about creating a brush with your logo or signature? Then, with just a click of the mouse you could digitally sign any of your copyrighted work or even add your logo to anything you've created.
Here are the steps to do this.
  1. Open a shape or image that you want to become a brush (larger images better so that your image doesn't pixelate when increasing your brush size. You can always make your brush size smaller)
  2. Edit > Define Brush Set
  3. Give your brush a descriptive name
  4. Open your brush pallet then scroll to the bottom of the brush selections
  5. Your new custom brush will be the last option available
It's that simple!
