After all that you can then go to the edit menu and use the define command to save that artwork as a new stroke


If you wish to save the stroke to an ABR file, go to the presets panel and right side menu and save command


If you want to add a variation of the defined preset, go to the related settings panel and set the dual settings, texture, spacing, etc and then go to the right side of that panel and use the new preset command and that will be saved with the color, settings etc


You can use all kinds of sources as pointed out above. A useful source of images for new presets is a video. A video can be a minute or an hour long but each of the frames can be captured by the edit menu define command as move the playhead. The film can be a normal film or perhaps an abstract video or you can just use a quick style and shape and then change the settings for gradients etc via the layer style and particular keyframes to create a quick movie that can be then captured frame by frame as a new preset for the panel (obviously not all frames but certainly a one minute film can be used as a greay way to capture many unique strokes via the define command by just moving the playhead. The video timeline artwork can also be turned into a smart object via the layer panel and effects can be added and removed and again the results can be captured in the making of 1000s of designs for your work all from a quick and easy source.


With the new PS 2018 presets panel, the tools can be moved around and grouped in countless ways
