How to Create a Custom Brush on Adobe Photoshop
Adobe Photoshop offers a variety of preset brush patterns, but it also allows users to create their own custom brushes. To begin customizing a brush, open a new file by clicking “File > New…”. The dimensions of the file does not matter, however, the color mode must be set to “Grayscale”. Click “OK” to proceed.
You should now see a plain white canvas with the dimensions of your choosing. Now, click on the Brush Tool on the side toolbar. You may select a different size paintbrush and paintbrush pattern at the top toolbar. Once you have chosen your desired brush, begin drawing the pattern of your custom brush on the blank white canvas.
After you have clicked “OK”, your custom brush pattern should be complete and fully accessible at the top toolbar when the Brush Tool is selected. Find your customized brush and get creative.
