I like all the swirlly-whirlly backgrounds you guys do. But have no clue how to make them.
So I stick with the plain Jane stuff.
Just do a search (Google/Yahoo) for Photoshop (or PSP) brushes, and you'll find sites where you can download them. What software are you using? I have PSP X, and I download a brush file, and then unzip it to my PSP sub-file entitled "Brushes".
When I click on the "standard brush" option on the PSP toolbar, I get a pop-up with all the brushes I've downloaded. I imagine Photoshop is similar. Then you can set the color, size, etc.
