F.A.Q.  
If you have any questions/comments/concerns, please feel free to leave me a comment below. I'm more than happy to answer, and will do it, as quickly as possible.

RULES

I know that it's annoying to have rules, but there's a reason for them, so here are the rules:

Please credit stereocafe for the resources you take. I don't care if it's in an resource post or on the post itself, whatever you like, as long as others can see it. This way, others will be able to find this community.
Please do NOT edit/recreate/change my resources/graphics and then claim them as your own. That is highly annoying, because I worked hard on all of them, and that if anyone does that, it just throws all my hard work away.
Please do NOT hotlink. I would really prefer if my bandwidth were not completely killed.
Also, although not required, I would love if you would comment, just so I know what everyone likes and of course because it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

INSTALLING AND USAGE

-
How do I install brushes?
- Included in the brush zip is a .abr and an image pack. I made the .abr in Photoshop CS2, so it's only usable for Photoshop users. If you have another program or a really early version of Photoshop, you must use the image packs and convert them to brushes.
  1. To install the .abr, open up Photoshop, and then go to Window>>Brushes. A small window labeled Brushes should then pop up. Click on the image of a small triangle inside of a circle next to the Brushes tab, opening up a menu. Once the menu is opened, click Load Brushes. Find your .abr on your computer and click Load. Now, you can use the brushes!
  2. To install brushes using image packs. Open up one of the brush images on Photoshop, and then select the entire image using your Rectangular Marquee tool (M) . Then, go to Edit >>Define Brush Preset. A window pops up and just press OK. Voila and you have yourself a brush!
- How do I install or use patterns?
- You can use patterns in two ways (or if you find more, kudos! But I can only think of two right now.) One, you can use it in a website, as a repeating pattern, or two, you can use it in a your graphics. To install in Photoshop, you open up the pattern image in Photoshop, and then go to Edit >> Define Pattern and then click OK. Then you can use the Paint Bucket Tool (G) in the toolbar. At the top where it displays the options for the tool, change Foreground to Pattern, and then choose your pattern.
