Quick CS2 question

I know how to create a brush design and save it as a preset, but when I reload a different set of brushes, my new one is gone. I think Im doing something wrong. Either that, or my CS2 is acting up on me! I have made a couple of watermarks that I really liked only to have them dissappear! any pointers? TIA:cool:

I think you have to save the group of brushes, I dont have CS2 so i'm not sure if its the same as CS3 but i'll look into it.

I was never talented enough to add new brushes, but I think Andrea may have the answer. Smile

Andrea, thanks for looking into it. I bet its pretty similar to CS3 too. I hate to go to all that work to create a perfect brush if Im only going to get to use it until I switch brush sets!

:lurk: Just save the brushes. Click on this little button in your brushes:

That will bring up a menu where you can save the current set of brushes.

I usually clear my brushes (alt and clicking them will bring up little scissors to delete them) and then make a new brush (or several new brushes)... and then I save that set as something like "My brushes." Make sure you save it in that same Presets>Photoshop Brushes folder so that you can find it again later.

When you go in to the brushes, "Load Brushes" will add the set that you choose to the current set, and "Replace Brushes" will reset them all and load only the set that you choose. Just thought I'd add that. Smile

This is exactly what I needed! Thank you so much for taking the time to help me out! Smile
