I was wondering if anyone has tried to use chinese character symbols as a preset brush. I have a home project that I would like to use a few symbols on. I could also stand to know which of the myraid chinese fonts are the best to down load for use in photoshop. I have ps 7 on both mac and pc. thanks jm
did i get you right, you want to define your own brush?
- select the desired part of your image with the marque tool (you can also crop it)
- copy "Ctrl+C" the area
- open a new document "Ctr+N"
- paste the selection into it "Ctrl+V"
- choose "edit" "define pattern" or "define brush"
- choose a name
mention that you cant use the brush in a bigger size as you created, without scaling.
thanks I worked through it, and I was using the wrong term, I wanted to define custom shape. I wound up using the pen tool to trace the calligraphy, created a vector mask from the current path then the option to define custom shape was made available. In the future I'll try to be less vague
