Photoshop in 60 Seconds: Custom Brush Sets

Apart from creating your own custom brushes in Adobe Photoshop, you can also organize any selection of brushes into a specific set. This allows digital artists and designers to organize their favorites as well as share them with the world as downloadable packs.

Let's take a look at how to create your own custom Brush Set in this quick video. And feel free to create your own custom nature brush pack like the one in the video using this Leaf stock from Envato Market.

How to Create Custom Brush Sets in Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop already comes with a variety of Brush Presets you can use. To display your favorite brushes, go to Edit > Presets > Preset Manager and set the Preset Type to Brushes.

Now select all the brushes you want. Hold the Control key to select more than one. Select Save Set, Name your new brushes, and Save them as a .ABR file.

Select and Save Your Custom Brushes

To access your custom set, select the drop down option under the Brush Tool to replace your current brushes with your new set.
