Saving Customized Brush Tips

Once a brush tip is created, it becomes part of the current set. However, the brush has not yet been permanently saved in Photoshop. Although the new brush tip will reappear every time you access the Brush panel, if you choose the option to reset the panel, the new brush will be lost. To keep brushes you must save them into customized sets; choose the default Brushes folder, so Photoshop can use them.
