In the dialog box that appears you can give the brush a name... but you'll also see that the size is 717 points which is entirely too big. So for now we'll need to resize the graphics to a more usable size. Click cancel and we will go resize now!

To resize go to image ...Resize....Image Size! Resizer it to about a 1" by 2" size or so! You can keep adjusting this to get the size logo you want but I've found a 100 point or so logo is less intrusive and takes less away from the photo!

Go to Edit...Define brush and you'll see the brush name dialog box again. Now you can name the brush. You'll also see the brush size is 113 points now..a more usable size! After naming the brush and if the size suits you click on OK!

Now you can exit ou from the work and the go to the tool menu and click on the brush icon! Go to the brush types and clik on the arrow.*****oll down the dropdown menu until you see the brush you've just created. It will always be there anytime you need it and the color and opacity are selectable by you. Any color and any amount of transparency can be selected and changed everytime you use it. This is just a straight forward logo but by using the Edit..Define Brush you can use photo's or artistic graphics to create an unlimited amount of logos! Have fun and be creative!
