    Right, I've been getting a lot of PM's from me, either wanting tutorials and for me to make people sigs. Now I'm more then happy sending out tutorials to people, but making sigs is now a no-no :) But I thought, why spend the time posting the same tutorials to each person? So I've decided to find the best things needed for Photoshop, not just tutorials, but Fonts, Brushes and any other stuff I come across, I will post here, hope this helps some of you, and hope its appreciated :) took me a bit of time, and I personally prefer seeing people doing the best of what they can do, then asking me to make the same sig over and over, when they just gotta take a little time to learn:)

    :lol: yeah would be good if it was stickied. Might cancel down the amount of sig request threads if people figure out they can actually make sigs themselves :) (assuming they have Photoshop of course) but yeah, I've been meaning to do this thread for a while now, thought I'd do it today while I wasn't busy :)

    Dafonts.com is by far the BEST free font site on the net

    C:/Windows/Fonts

    go their and then with that folder open, go to File>Install new Font and then navigate to the folder that has all your downloaded fonts and install them

    I know that part, I mean I can't even get to the part where it pops up the window w/ all the files. You know, at the top it's got the "font family", the "font type", what do I click on to even get to the part to upload them?

    Okay, when working w/ brushes you have to click on the little arrow beside the diameter size of the brush and then click that little arrow to go and find a custom brush you have uploaded off the internet.

    What's wrong right now is that I can't even find (metaphorically) the little arrow beside the diameter of the circle. Omg this is hard to explain...`

    Do you mean you dont know where to place your brush files?

    I stick them here:
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2\Presets\Brushes

    Hope it helps a little.

    Lol, thx for the try, but I already know about brushes. :lol: I was just using that as an analogy for fonts. I can save them, but, I don't know what to click on in Photoshop to make the window pop up with all the folders to go and find it.

    P.S. I need to know too! Lol, i'm trying to make some sigs and i've got no fonts whatsoever... :mad2:

    Great Job el sexpot ;)

    Just so that you guys know, through pm i can answer any questions that he might not, that way it takes a load off from him as well :)

    I will not answer any animation questions though, seeing as he is the expert and i just do still sigs ;)

    open the text tool and at top is all the fonts installed on your PC. photoshop uses the same fonts that every other program on you PC uses
