Oh, while i got you here…you have a tut somewhere for creating those ‘special effect’ brushes like the ones in PS 7? I’ve been putting it on hold for a while now. I know how to make brushes….regular brushes but I like those ones that pop out images/paint all over with one click. Like i said, I figured I get to it sooner or later but seems I’m on the ‘later’ end of the pole…I need a push ! Thanks !

mike – Creating brush tip shapes works pretty much this way in Elements – what I think Jodi was talking about is creating brushes which have the fancy brush dynamics saved with them – Elements can use these features if some nice person puts them in for us and saves them with the brush – but we can’t create them. Unfortunately most people who create brushes with PS7 concentrate on saving the brush shapes and don’t think about the dynamics (how they work with tip sensitivity, fancy colour jitter etc.) I guesss they assume that people using them can set these up for themselves – but Elements users can’t!

There is one set that works with PE2 that has the brush dynamics saved with them on the Adobe Exchange. They are labled pen and ink by Schneich. They say photoshop 7 only… but work in PE2. At least I think this is what you mean by brush dynamics, they work like the special effects brushes prepackaged with elements. I thought I’d pass that along to you since you were mooning.

Cheers Terri – that’s exactly the sort of thing that I’m thinking of – I’d missed those. I haven’t had a browse around the exchange for a while.

Susan- Sad to say I think it may be the only set like that on the exchange.

I’m still looking for it Terri! But I’ve found some cool custom shapes so far (some nice borders)…still searching for the brushes!

Susan…gave wrong name. Look on page 17 for Ps7 art and gen art brushes by schoneich…I must have saved them under my own save name. Sorry for the misinformation.

Thanks – I’ll go and look. I’ve found some interesting brushes with dynamics (some I already had but forgotten) plus an interesting tutorials on how to use the PS7 dynamics for creating hair brushes at creativemac.com (I’d be more precise with the URL but something about the site is crashing my browser!)

Edit – got them now, thanks!

yes I know how to make those basic brushes. It’s the special effect brushes i’m interested in…the ones that use foreground and background colors…the ones that basically shoot out many different size pixels in one click. I had seen the tutorial months ago but the dumb@$$ that I am I forgot to bookmark it. I’m sure I can find it again though. I’ve just been doing too many different things lately and haven’t slowed my butt down to put 100% focus on one thing. C’est la vie !

OK, I got it. Fiddled around and figured it out. It was all in the brush dinamics…duh.

Susan- I have been scaling down the number of pixils on some of them because some of them are so huge.

Jodi- Are you actually planning to make a brush set or two like these?

Fantastic!!! Glad Susan brought the dynamic brushes up. Thanks for all your efforts…it’s really nice of you to make things for those of us who only have the Elements 1 and 2 software.

Terri, The certain type brushes I’m creating at the moment are the special effects brushes and will only be able to work in PE2….if I’m lucky. Beth is my tester so she’ll be getting them first. Beth, hope it’s OK that i nominated you…I guess I’m assuming that’s OK since you’ve done such a great job in the past 😉 If not just send them back with a nasty note attached 🙂

I’m always up for testing! 🙂

I don’t have anything yet, though. Is that right? I’m closing down for the day, so I’ll check my mailbox bright and early tomorrow.

Susan S-

Two new sets of brushes with brush dynamics are on the Exchange. The only difference in the sets is one spreads a single color while other one is multicolored. They are pretty similar to special effects packaged with PE2 but have a couple of snow flake patterns that might come in handy with Christmas approaching. They are located on first page of new downloads…named Scatterelle by Lisa Tam. I thought I’d let you know since you were interested in dynamic brushes.
