Terrific Typographical Photoshop Brushes

Whether you want to quickly build texture in an image collage or you’re simply short on drawing skills, Photoshop brushes are invaluable. They come in every shape imaginable, and you can endlessly manipulate their size and color.
Thanks to the Internet’s generosity, a lot of Photoshop brushes are free downloads. Just do a search and you’ll find a huge assortment—so many that it’s overwhelming. That’s why I’ve compiled a special brush collection for you. Every set features letters or is related to typography.
But before I get to the sample images and download links, here’s a refresher course on how to install Photoshop brush sets:
1. If the download file is a Zip format, extract the .ABR file from the Zip archive.
2. Move the .ABR file to a permanent location on your computer. This could be into the Photoshop Brushes folder (full paths below) or a central location you create for Photoshop brushes. To place it in Photoshop’s existing brush folder, move or copy the .ABR file:
Windows: C:Program FilesAdobeAdobe Photoshop CSxPresetsBrushes
Mac OSX: Applications/Adobe Photoshop CSx/Presets/Brushes/
3. Open Photoshop and select the Brush tool.
4. On the Options bar, click the down arrow beside the brush shape preview. This will pop open the controls for brushes.
5. From the brush control popup, click the right-facing arrow in the top right corner and select Load Brushes.
6. When the Load Brushes dialog appears, navigate to the location where you placed the .ABR file and then open that file.
7. Photoshop will ask whether you’d like to replace the brushes already in the brush palette or append to them, adding the new brush set to the end of the list of brushes. Typically you’ll want to append.
8. Start brushing!
