Editing Designer Vector Brushes – what colour and file format is needed for the image?


Recommended Posts

hello,

I want to create vector brushes for Designer, at the moment I already was successful with black and grey shape on transparent background with the PNG-file-format. If I use the brush which is made from the black pixel shape it keeps black even if I give the stroke a colour, the grey ones show some colour but not the full saturation. I checked the exsisting standard brushes and saw the image ist white, but if I use a white shape on transparent background, the brush stroke keeps white. What kind of image is needed to create a vector brush to get a brush stroke with the colour which is chosen on the colour panel? Does it need another trancparency value? Or a different file format than PNG?

Thanks in advance.

To create a brush that can be coloured, you need a white shape on a black background, The brush you need to make is an Intensity brush. Any shade of grey in-between black and white will show as varying degrees of transparency.
