You can Install Brushes In Photoshop Elements. This step-by-step tutorial will show you how.
Watch the video below to see how to do it. Under the video there is a summary of the steps for you to refer to.
I recommend that you create a new folder on your computer and name it "PS Elements Extra Brushes" or some other descriptive name so that you know what's inside the folder.
Move any Brush sets that you download into that folder.
When you originally installed Photoshop Elements, several files and folders were automatically added to your computer as part of the program.
The Brushes Folder is one of those folders. And that’s where you want to put your new Brush (abr) File. That's how you install brushes in Photoshop Elements.
Look at the 3 paths to the Brushes Folder below and find the path for the version of PSE that you have and the type of computer that you are using.
Open your Brushes Folder and you will see all of the abr files that came with Photoshop Elements.
In a new window, open the new folder that you created in Step 1("PS Elements Extra Brushes").
Now just drag the new Brush Filefrom the Extra Brushes folder to the Brushes folder for Elements.
The new Brush Set won't be available in Photoshop Elements yet.
That's because the Brushes are loaded from the Brushes Folder into PSE when you start up the program.
Since we added the new set to the Brushes Folder after Elements was already launched, it hasn't loaded our new set.
So quit out of PSE by pressing Command-Q on a Mac or Control-Q if you're on a PC.
Now restart Elements and our new Brush Set will be added as Elements starts up and loads the Brushes from the Brushes Folder.
Now when you look in the Brush Set drop-down menu you'll see the new Brush Set available to use.
That wraps up this look at how to install brushes in Photoshop Elements.
Until next time,
