For graphic designers having a large variety of brushes, such as Photoshop metal brushes, in the toolbox is a must!
Though Photoshop comes with a set of basic brushes, most users need to extend the range of brushes in order to use Photoshop professionally and do great stuff faster. In order to be able to accommodate the changing needs of each new design project you might discover that it is not only brushes you need but also experience in how to create the effect the client asks for will be useful. For tutorials on how to add actions to enhance your photos quickly I recommend you have a look at this article.
For this article, I have found a great collection of Photoshop metal brush sets you can use for creating bullet holes, rust stains, adding an industrial look to a design or even give a polished design a grungy appear.
Several of these brushes will be great additions not only to your basic Photoshop toolbox but also if you already have stocked up on brushes. Enjoy!
