Free Photoshop brushes


Photoshop is the most popular graphics editing program. Produced by Adobe, the latest version is Photoshop CS4, part of the Creative Suite. With hundreds of plugins, brushes and gradient packs, Photoshop is increasing in utility every day.

Though weighing in at a hefty price (over $600), Photoshop is powerful even in a vanilla install. However, as in any other application, its true essence lies in installing useful addons to enhance the functionality. Photoshop brushes are plentiful, with hundreds of sites and thousands of artists providing their artwork as brushes, or making brushes directly. The functionality of brushes are plentiful.
