Frog brushes for Photoshop etc examples
Photoshop frog brushes and more
The frog brushes are for use in most applications. The ABR files are for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements but the frog brushes PNG files can be used as brushes as well as images in virtually all applications. You can also just convert the PNG frog brushes to TIFF etc
Opening frog brushes in Photoshop
The frog brushes (for Photoshop etc) are easy to use and apply throughout the application. The frog brush set comes with the designs stored in the standard Photoshop brushes ABR format file as well as PNG. To load the brushes into Photoshop, go to the edit menu and the preset manager and select the brushes option and load the brushes. You can also use the file open command to load the frog brushes ABR files in some cases though for some weird and wonderful leaping reason, the file open does not work with every version of Photoshop and Elements. The best solution to opening the frog Photoshop brushes ABR file is to select a brush tool and then go to the brush palette and use the load / replace commands on the side of that palette to load all the varied poses of frogs.
If you add the ABR frog brushes (Photoshop) file to the brushes folder (and this varies with the application - I would suggest searching the web for the current location for CS6 CS5 CS4 brushes), the frog designs will then appear in the list along with the assorted brushes, basic, calligraphic, DP, drop shadow, dry media, faux finish that are loaded with the initial installation of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. This might prove more useful in the installation. If you obtain the frog brushes via the Adobe Exchange (latest version) that can be accessed within the application via the extensions section, the frog Photoshop brushes are properly installed in the brushes presets folder by default without any interaction.
Once loaded, you can then apply the frog brushes via all the various Photoshop brushes (such as paint, pencil, clone, art history, smudge - above you can see some of the tools that you can use with the brushes such as the mixer brush tool and the pencil and brush tool in the toolbox - many of the brush tools are hidden beneath other tools).
You can also load the frog brushes into Photoshop via the PNG frog files and in that case, just use the file open to load the frog PNG files. The PNG frog files can also be used in countless other applications so you are not limited to just Photoshop but you can also use them in many other applications as frog brushes.
You can also load the frog brushes (for Photoshop etc) PNG files and then use the edit menu define brush command to re-save the frog to the palette (you can also use effects to apply perhaps blurs or rough edge effects to the frog before re-saving as a new brush)
The frog brushes, once loaded, can be applied as a single dab or as a spray or as a continuous flow - this depends on the settings in the brushes palette. The brushes palette in Photoshop offers a massive range of options to apply the frog dabs such as scatter the designs, apply with varying colors of weird and wonderful sickly frogs and more. The above image of the frogs was created using two frogs - once just about to leap and another flat on the ground.
You can also use the brush palette to rotate the brush stroke so if you want the design to be upside down when you apply it (and why not), use the brush palette to rotate the design by 180 degrees or 90 degrees You can use the little rotation tool to rotate the stroke but personally I have always found it easier to enter 90 degrees in the angle field in the brush palette. Other settings such as roundness can be used to squeeze the life out of a poor animal (no actual animals are harmed!)
Frog brushes (for Photoshop etc) as a layer
If you wish you can use the frog brushes designs only in the PNG format and place the frog file into Photoshop as a layer. The Photoshop layer is set as a smart object (with the recent versions of Photoshop) and you can then combine the frog designs in countless ways to create many unique and wonderful artworks. The frog designs can also have live effects applied such as Photoshop blurs, filter gallery effects and more as well as the standard bevel / shadow / stroke effects. As a layer, the frog shape can also be just used as one part of a design.
The example above shows a frog brush stroke applied to a layer (a new layer) and then layer effects applied to the design - could easily be wood, metallic, gel or a text effect but in this case a Photoshop satin and color effects and shadow are applied to the frog design. The frog brush stroke can then be saved and used and applied either as a new brush stroke or as an object (sadly, Photoshop has no object library to store snippets of designs that can be re-used such as in a live effect of an vector shape or dynamic floater)
Creation of frog brushes (for Photoshop etc) designs
All the strokes used in the frog brushes set (volume 1) were created in the excellent Poser application version 8 (though it is now up to 9 and also SR3). The designs were all rendered in a variety of different poses and angles as well as using my favourite renders, scratchy renders (I wish Poser would add more options for that). Those frog brushes renders were then saved as PNG files which were then imported into Photoshop (version 6 - yes, I still use that occasionally as it is the earliest version with brushes) and saved as a frog Photoshop brushes ABR file via an action which imports all the PNG files in and saves them via the edit menu - reasonably quick way of doing it instead of repeatedly going to the edit menu for each file. The frogs are all then saved as an ABR file
