I get most of my clipart from pccrafter. You have to be careful to tag them properly if you're using them in sigs but that's not too hard to do.

Brushes - I have a varied collection of those which I have found by doing google searches for "free Photoshop brushes". I also make my own and have put them here. If anyone wants to use them, feel free. I love to see them in other people's siggies. :o)

For photos, I tend to use freefoto dot com. which is a UK based site so it has lots of pics of UK stuff. :o)

WARNING: FOR ALL NEW MAKERS


Alot of new makers don't realize that some (actually quite a few) brushes, clipart, stock photos, etc. have very strict copyrights that can/will be enforced if used w/o authorization.

I use a lot of PCC graphics as well. For brushes and graphics I also like to use dingbats. dafont.com has a lot of neat ding bat options from tv shows to cartoons! It's a great resource.

If you click on the thumbnail to get taken to the page with the full-size version then right click on that to save it to your computer. After that it all depends which program you are using.

In Photoshop you open the jpg you've just saved and then go into the edit menu and click on "define brush preset". Name it and press okay. It will now be in your list of brushes right at the very end so scroll way down and you'll find it.

If it's PSP you're using, I'll need to leave the explanation of how to use it to one of the PSPers as I have no clue how PSP works.

HTH :o)
