Create your own brushes for use in Windows 10 Paint

When referring to programs that focus on editing all kinds of photographic files, in most cases the Adobe Photoshop proposal comes to mind. This is a program that meets the expectations of everyone, although it may be too complex for most, contrary to what happens with Microsoft Paint.

And is that with Photoshop we talk about one of the best proposals, but the best, worldwide for this type of work. However, it is a program that, in addition to having a high price, has so many functions that most of us don't know how to take advantage of it. Therefore it is good to know that for this type of work we can use many other software proposals. In fact many of these are free and will meet our expectations, to spare.

Over the past few months we have been talking about several of these alternatives, some to install on Windows, others not even, since they can be used from the browser. The current photo retouching work that many users carry out in the current times, most of the time they focus on basic tasks of this type. Moreover, the more automated and simple they are to carry out, the better than better.

But in certain cases we will not need to go too far, we mean outside the Redmond operating system itself. We tell you this because, as most of you will know, Windows 10 itself has its own integrated retouching application.

Get the most out of Microsoft Paint brushes

In fact, Paint, among other things due to its simplicity and accessibility, has been used by millions of users around the world over the years and versions of Windows. That is why we are now going to show you how to create your own creations of one of the most used tools in this type of programs, brushes. Specifically we will show you how to create custom brushes in Microsoft Paint.

It is clear that for this the first thing we do is start the application as such, for example, from the Start menu of the system. Once we have it on the screen, we place ourselves on the “Select” button so that we can see the drop-down list that will open here. Therefore, we make sure that the “Transparent selection” option is checked. Then it will be when we load the transparent image that we want to use to create the new brush that we will use.

Next we have to mark the specific section that we want to use to act as a brush, then, and with the Shift key pressed, drag the selection across the screen so that we can see the shape of the new brush. It is possible that the first time we try this, the results are not exactly the desired ones, but soon and with a little practice we will see that we can obtain very striking and interesting results in Paint.
