This tut was made using CS2, although it should work in CS3.

1) First off my fellow cover fiends you must prepare your file so GO..................file > new file and adjust the settings like so (see, fig:1..............then just follow the figs).

2) Select the image that you wish to convert to an ABR then paste it into your newly created file.

3) Now here is the fun bit, all the settings you require are in the IMAGE > ADJUSTMENTS drop down menu. Remember you are working with BLACK on WHITE............so the more white you get the more BACKGROUND you will see through your brush application and the more black you get the less you will see............plus, because we are in GRAYSCALE your image will produce degrees of opacity through shades of grey ......................you enjoying it so far!.................
......cool...............heheheheheh (IMG:style_emoticons/default/giggle.gif)

4) So using the following adjust away until your hearts content....
a) LEVELS..................my fave
b) EXPOSURE
c) SHADOW/HIGHLIGHTS
d) CURVES
e) CONTRAST .....................my fave

Once you are happy with your little BLACK n WHITE masterpiece........................select the layer you are working on then > SELECT ALL>EDIT>DEFINE BRUSH.


Your done.....................or you have been done.................hehehehehehehe................cos, now all you got is a big black splodge when you come to use your brush!
JUST KIDDING!..........................when you select your new brush from your brush pallette you will find a thing of beauty and be forever grateful to kylumi and want
to give him lot of praise and pleasure...............and buy him a present.........like a gold badge or a milkmans hat or something like that!

Nice work Piggy m8, more or less the same as I do it. Was a revelation to me when I found out that White=transparent then it all becomes clear (IMG:style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)
