Custom Nibs in Corel PHOTO-PAINT

In this video tutorial, I teach you how to create custom nibs in Corel PHOTO-PAINT. Nibs are the shapes used for your brushes. If you use a square nib, you will paint in the shape of a square. If you use a circular nib, it will paint in the shape of the circle. Watch this tutorial and you can create any shape to use for your brushes.

You can see me use a custom nib to create grass in my Dab Attributes Tutorial.

Note that I also intended to offer a zip file on this page that contains many of my own custom nibs. Unfortunately, I have not yet learned how to import nibs without overwriting all existing nibs. If you have a solution, please send it to me and I will give you credit for teaching me that method.
