How to Install New brushes into Photoshop automatically using the plugin (Video Tutorial)

One click installation of Photoshop brushes into Photoshop

Buying the Artbrushes Photoshop brushes Set gives you a free two month  membership, which includes all new brushes published in the Shop for 60 days, if you are a Photoshop CC user and are using the GrutBrushes plugin you can install the newest brushes without even leaving Photoshop. This 30 second tutorial shows how it’s done.

Tips:

  • The Photoshop brushes are always listed in order of publication, with the newest one shown first.
  • If you can’t remember if you installed the newest Photoshop brush, Click install and the plugin will let you know if you have it already.
  • The web panel is slow to load, you may think nothing is happening but it should load within about 15 seconds (im trying to change this)
  • The red play button will pop up a video preview of the brush in action.

Inky Leaks Tests – Photoshop Splatter brushes coming along

Testing the Photoshop splatter brushes for the Inky leaks collection

I’m still working hard testing the splatter, spray and inky messes that will be included in the Inky Leaks Photoshop splatter and spray brushes and tools collection. Here’s one of the test blotters from the lab. If you look closely you can see the smears from a couple of mixer brushes in there as well as a finger print smudge tool. The collection is coming along well and I still expect to release it on August 30th but you can still pre-order it until it is released at considerable discount (The price climbs up a bit every week)

I really love painting with this week’s free GrutBrush. It’s sloppy, has a ton of personality, wild edges but very controllable opacity and is chock full of texture (even though the brush itself has no texture bitmap – it’s all in the brush tip) Get it for free all week on the free Photoshop brush of the week page

Free Photoshop Brush of the Week #71 – “Flue Blow”

Drawn with the free Photoshop brush of the week for July 25th “Flue Blow”

This week’s free Photoshop brush is a big broad brush that covers your image in a fast flowing cloud of debris. Like a broken sack of coal this brush is capable of a light dusting, but with a little more stylus pressure it will release a thick billowing dust cover. Get it for free all week on the free Photoshop brush of the week page

Free Photoshop Brush of the Week #69

Drawn with the Humble Bee Photoshop brush

Drawn with this week’s free GrutBrush, the “Humble Bee” natural media brush. It’s a thick saw-tooth edged opaque brush with a free flowing thick wet ink appearance, with a very slight width variation but when used with a lighter touch as I’ve done here it can have a bit of a crayonlike appearance. The background texture was created by scaling the brush to an absurdly large size. You can get the brush as always on the free brush of the week page
