How to: Install & Use Photoshop Brushes

Homework Assignment

For this assignment you will be creating 3 separate images displaying the different ways you can use brushes.  I recommend installing brushes from Brusheezy (there much better and easier to work with for this purpose). Make a 3 different flyers for a made-up event to outreach for. You are just changing the background for each image, so you can reuse the same event info.  Please make sure you submit your images in a jpeg file (Save for Web > JPEG)

1) The first image should show the brush being used as a background.
