Creating Custom Copyright Brush

This tutorial will show you a quick way to apply your copyright watermark to an image using photoshop brush.

Step 1) We’ll be starting off by creating a new document (file>new>new document). Don’t worry about the document size, it does not really matter as you will always be able to resize your brush when you need it later on.
