Answer by Marlee
If they are in the default folder:Open your Applications folder (it will be under Programs on a PC). Find the Presets folder. Inside that is the Brushes folder.

If they aren’t there go to My Computer, then click “C”
Hit the search button and search for the keyword .abr.
They will show up and you can open the folder they are in.

How to install photoshop cs4 without loosing .bmp in new files to create?

Question by Sam Merlotte: How to install photoshop cs4 without loosing .bmp in new files to create?
After installing photoshop i loose ability to create .bmp on desktop (Right mouse click > new > bmp).
why photoshop replace this and i want it back.
HOW?

Answer:

Answer by Nahum
This has more to do with your operating system than with Photoshop. PS does take ‘ownership’ of the BMP format, but you can return it to the OS.

If you’re on Windows 7, you have to make a registry change. This site has a file that can automate the change for you:

In Windows XP, you can add items to the C:\WINDOWS\System32\SHELLNEW folder. Copies of these will appear in the “New…” dialog.

Any places to get photoshop brushes without violating copyright rules?

Question by DarkBlue: Any places to get photoshop brushes without violating copyright rules?
I want to get some gimp/photoshop brushes, and use them to make some artwork, but i want to post my artwork on a website. I asked people on DeviantArt for permission to use their brushes, but i never get a response back. So is there any place besides DeviantArt to get brushes, where i don’t have to ask permission to use there brushes? I will cite where i got the brushes if i ever use them in my artwork.

Best answer:

Answer by anqi
Generally, when you download brushes from DeviantArt, you don’t have to ask for permission to use them. I would read the individual terms of use on each brush, and definitely give credit when you use them, but unless it specifically says that you can’t post artwork using their brushes on other websites, you don’t really need to ask permission.
Otherwise, here’s some other sites to download brushes (some link back to deviantart, though)

I’m working with photoshop cs4 and I really need help.
I’m trying to add images to my companys flyer but my background is changing when I’m trying to add images.Can somebody please help
when i am adding an image the background surrounding the image is turning white instead of being the background, what can i do to just add the image without doing anything to the background?please help.this is my companys project and i cannot find a solution πŸ™

Best answer:

Answer by Monsoon
here’s what i would do,
1)open up the image(s) you need to add and the flyer. 2)press “V” (this activates the move tool) then select an image you wanted to add 3)click on the image and drag it to the flyer it should pop up as a separate layer ready for you to bend at your will.

If it doesn’t work you can mail me or possibly send it to me, if you feel comfortable doing that i could check it out and send you back something more solid. Good luck!

The problem I’m having is, I want to apply brushes to my images but brushes mostly work with Adobe photoshops only. I don’t want 2 purchase the photoshop since I already have Photoscape and CorelDRAW graphic suitX4. Can anybody teach me how I can apply brushes using the programs I have coz I’m a beginner and it seems like adobe photoshop is the only choice? You can also provide me information about free programs(not trial) too that can use brushes. I appreciate your help!

How do you choose a brush color in photoshop cs3 without it blending in?

Question by hi: How do you choose a brush color in photoshop cs3 without it blending in?
Whenever i try to choose a brush color for example purple it never appears but the brush appears the color of my picture and it does it randomly. I can never get it to be the color i choose and it looks ugly. My picture would has some red and my brush would be red but then it changes to brown. I try and try and can never get it working please help?!! THANK YOU!

Answer by M T
Your description is confusing.

If you don’t know what you are doing you can’t describe it. If you can’t describe it I can only guess it has something to do with transparency. I doubt some of your words are accurate. Blending? Changing? Random? it may seem that way to you but it probably is not the actual case.

This is a simple procedure.

You ought to get the color you have selected if you click on the swatch in Options Bar while the Brush Tool is activated. Make sure Transparency is set to 0 so the brush stroke completely covers whatever it is painted over.

Q&A: How do I import a picture to Flash CS4 without it becoming/appearing compressed?

Question by Neoscottie: How do I import a picture to Flash CS4 without it becoming/appearing compressed?
I have a picture that I would like to import into Flash CS4 saved as a PNG and BMP format. When the picture appears on the stage, it appears to have been compressed. It looks like a jpeg. This is rather upsetting to me since I worked hard on a clean, crisp image for use in the flash file. Is there any way to keep this compression from happening or am I out of luck?

Best answer:

Answer by Gemma
It is possible to import pictures to Flash without causing artifacts. However, I don’t know whether the method is the same for all versions, as I am using Flash MX Pro 2004. In MX Pro, once the image is imported into the library, you right click on the image and select ‘Properties’ from the dropdown menu that appears. Inside, you will find another dropdown menu for adjusting image compression. Select ‘Lossless (PNG/GIF)’

Hope this helps!
