This tutorial was done using PSP 8. It is intended to serve as a learning tool. You will learn how to import custom brushes into PSP 8, 9 and X. 

Getting Started.
These instructions are only valid to load brushes into PSP 8, PSP 9 and PSP X

* You need to download the brushes into a TEMPORARY folder NOT YOUR PSP BRUSH FOLDER!.

 * Most brushes are in a zip file. You will need a program like Winzip to unzip the file. You can get Winzip

 * After you have unzipped the file into a TEMPORARY folder (NOT YOUR PSP BRUSH FOLDER), open PSP 8 and do the following :
 * Select File, Import, Custom Brush.


 * Now make sure you are pointing to the folder you downloaded them to and click on open.

 * Select the file or files you want to add and double left click to open the file.
 * Now select Add All and then click OK.


You should now be able to select the new brush in PSP 8, PSP 9 and PSP X. If you do not see the brushes, exit PSP and then go back into it, then select the brush. If you are new to the site please make sure you take a look at the custom brushes I made and am offering for free. They are original, mouse drawn brushes.
