Creating Custom Copyright Brush

This tutorial will show you a quick way to apply your copyright watermark to an image using photoshop brush.

Step 1: We'll be starting off by creating a new document (file>new>new document). Don't worry about the document size, it does not really matter as you will always be able to resize your brush when you need it later on.

Click on the third icon on the left to create custom shapes using pixels rather than paths, c). Choose the copyright symbol from the default set of shapes.
