I have been in need of brushes just like this.  They will probably be in my set of most used brushes.

So anyway here’s what i came up with just playing around with them a bit.

(edit to add just on the off chance anyone actually wants to know.  i used gimp for this)

How about Photoshop Elements 6 for the ABR brushes. I know Ron’s brushes work in PSE6 as I have some.

Since there is a PS7 version included, you should be good to go. Even users of PSE 2 should be able to use those.  Good rule of thumb is that Elements can use brushes made with the version of Photoshop that is comes out right before that version of Elements and versions of Photoshop that are older.  PSE 6 came out shortly after CS3 so you should be compatible with brushes made in CS3 and below. The only caveat is that some dynamics may not be available….just the difference in Photoshop vs Elements.

Awesome! Thanks so much for explaining. Sadly, I don’t really use Elements to know all the ins and outs of it. I know I’ve heard in passing they could be converted to PSE, but not sure what the workflow is for that, either.  Like I said earlier, I may have an older copy of Elements (I think I got it free when I bought my wacom graphire) but I have to locate the disk in my heaping mound lol That is, if I could even figure out how the conversion works.

That said, you may not even have to convert the .abr, specifically, or work the long way around it. I included png’s, so it should be something like opening them each in Elements and saving them as Elements brushes (if all else fails) http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/freedownloads/f/convertabr.htm

Before I switched over entirely to Photoshop, I used to use PS7 brushes with PSE2 and PSE3 without any problems other than losing some dynamics in brushes that had dynamic settings that Elements couldn’t tap into.

From what I understand, the Elements application is based on the same code as the Photoshop application.. This is why you can get actions that “add” some limited Photoshop functions back into Elements. It’s no so much bringing in something new as providing an access point to tap into Photoshop features.  BTW, these tools can’t tap into advanced features,  just a limited version of the feature….like a curves dialog that is limited to RGB and can’t be edited. Although in the latest versions, I don’t think they need that as much anymore as they’ve been adding these limited features that add-on actions previously added.

WOW! Dire Bunny, that is utterly gorgeous!!!!!


Thanks smile 

This is one of the odd ties when i knew what colours i wanted to play around with, but had no clear idea of what the picture should be.

So i just started rendering random pieces and trying to fit it together. “lol”

Think I will slip one more pic in here.
This took longer than i thought it would for something pretty simple.
I just could not get the effects around her hand look right with out obscuring her face and covering the entire hand.

Finally got it to look how i wanted it though.

Hi IS, I’m interested in ordering these. I read above that you have a tutorial for one of your other products. Can you please direct me to that tutorial? I would love to see if a novice like me can work with them. Thanks loads.

Well, I dont think I have any tuts for using brushes per se…. I was going to do one for these, demonstrating how to use gradients and such, but I havent had a chance to yet. It seems that my Christmas present was coming down with a bit of a sinus infection LOL so Ive been languishing about the last 4-5 days. Hopefully, it will clear up soon, and I can find some time to get to it.

Here, is the link to my youtube acct—just in case anyone wants the tuts Ive added so far. There are a few on Photoshop, showing how to do different things.

Thank you. I’m most likely going to order them. But I’ve had a few problems with ordering products and not getting them to work. So now I’m very cautious.
