Graphic designers know that working with custom shapes in Photoshop can be a big time-saver. Instead of churning it out with the path tool or using Adobe Illustrator, you have instant access to different kinds of custom shapes that you can also modify if you want.
While free brushes get a lot of attention, custom shapes probably get less. Do you know that you can easily convert shapes to brushes? Here’s how. Create a shape on a layer then “rasterize” it by right clicking on the layer and selecting “Rasterize Layer”. Then select from the top menu, Edit > Define Brush Preset. The brush name prompt will apper. Type the name of your brush then click “ok”. Done. You now created your first custom Photoshop brush from a custom shape.
