Leaf’d: 10 Free High-Res Photoshop Leaf Brushes

Leaf'd: 10 Free High-Res Photoshop Leaf Brushes

With fall upon us, I thought that it would be great to share an autumn-themed freebie.

Leaf’d is a set of free Photoshop leaf brushes. The brushes are big – giving you flexibility in usage (they’re between 1,900 – 2,400+ pixels wide). They’re available for you to download under the Creative Commons license and you’re free to use them for any purpose, commercial or otherwise.


Here is a preview of the brushes included inside Leaf’d.

I am new to adding additional tools to photoshop, where would one save this out so that the brushes are accesible?

Wow, they look so realistic. Did you scan real leaves to create this set?

Jacob Gube Oct 25 2009

@Heather: I took high-resolution photos of leaves using a DSLR camera, yes.

always on the lookout for more brushes. Can never have enough. Thanks for sharing!

Then append them to your existing Brushes.
open the Brushes menu, using the pull down menu ( the little arrow on the top right of the Brushes menu), select Load Brushes (not Replace), navigate to the Brushes folder, and select the file “Leaf Brush Set.abr” They should show up at the bottom of your active Brushes! Have fun…

Oh, and thanks so much, Jacob, these are great!

Thanks for the information. All the brushes are good. I will send this link to my designing team and friends.
