I'm having a problem making a brush preset tool. I want to have a push-pin tool that I can use as a brush for placing wherever I need it. I can make the tool, but it always goes into a photo in a transparent state. I would like to do it in an opaque mode so as to cover the background behind it. I can do this by drawing my pin, filling it and then copying. That works, but it won't function as a brush. It's probably something obvious, but I'm at a loss...

I hope the attachment will show what I mean.
Thanks, John

Thanks very much IamSam. I figured it was probablysomething simple that I didn't think of. I'll see what I can do now.

Sorry, I meant to add this last night and I became sidetracked.

I would just find a good pushpin reference image, remove it's background, and import it into what ever document I was needing to add a pushpin.
Convert it to a smart object so you can copy and resize as many times as you like.
Looks much better than a solid red brush stamp.
