Stunning Smoke Effects: 42 High Resolution Photoshop Brushes

Creating realistic-looking smoke in Photoshop can be tough to do. There are several ways to achieve a smoky look but most involve the use of the liquify tool, third-party plug-ins, or some creative photo manipulation. Either way, achieving a smoky effect can take a considerable amount of time. That’s why I decided to create a set of high resolution Photoshop brushes to help you achieve a stunning smoky effect without a lot of effort.

This set includes 42 high resolution smoke effect brushes for Photoshop. These brushes are incredible and are a lot of fun to play with. Feel free to download them and use them in your personal or professional designs for free.

    wow. These look great! Care to share your process for making them?

  • Nardyello

    These brushes are fantastic! Thank you for sharing them.

    I just have one question, unfortunately when I click to apply them to any layer, they don’t come out the size I had chosen. I have to repeatedly click until the appropriate size (that had been chosen) is applied. Do you know why that may be?

  • Franz Jeitz

    WOW these are insanely great. I’ve actually tried to make my own a couple weeks back, but couldn’t produce any decent photgraphs. Great job Grant. Keep ’em coming!
