Start out by stamping your bushes on plain white paper. Try to get the best stamped image possible.
Scan in your image at a 300 resolution, and black & white document. See example below.
Zoom in on the first image you would like to select as your stamp, and select the image using your lasso tool. See example below.
Copy the selection and paste into a new window. Short cut keys: Ctrl – C, Ctrl – N, Ctrl – V.
Take your magic eraser tool, or whatever tool you prefer to use to erase the white background.
Here is an example of my cleaned up image.
As you can tell my stamping wasn’t clear enough. If you’d like, you can take one of your basic circle brushes and just clean up your image a bit.
Once you feel your image is ready, let’s start creating your Photo shop brushes.
1. Click on Edit – Define Brush Preset.
2. Give your brush a name
Continue this until you have created all your brushes.
In order to save this brush set you will have to delete all the other brushes that are currently in the brush set. To do this, click on the brush selector tool and randomly delete the miscellaneous brushes in this set. See example below.
Once you have completed this you can then save your brush set.
Click on Brush Preset button, Save Brushes. Give your brushes a name. In the future when you want to bring up your favorite stamped brushes they will be saved on your computer.
I hope you found this tutorial helpful. :-)
