Hi! Today I uploaded to my shop these Photoshop Frame Brushes. To use them you’ll need Adobe Photoshop.

Here’s how to:

Open Photoshop. I have PS5 but you can use them with any older version.

Open a new file.

Go to Window> Brush Presets. You’ll see a grayed window with the Default Brushes. On the toolbar on your left click the Brush tool. Then go to Brush Presets and the window’s changed to white and now you can use it.

Choose one, resize. These brushes are 1000 px, you can make them smaller, moving the size arrow on the Brush Palette, or bigger until they are 2500 px.

Then choose a color from Window> Color, Window> Swatches, or the Color Picker. To open the Color Picker double click on the upper left square on the bottom of the toolbar on your left .
