Brushes and Pencil toolsUsing BrushesThere is a huge range of customisable andpreset brushes. Heres how to use them
Once you select the Brush tool you can1choose a Brush Shape from the Brushpreset drop-down menu in the Options bar.Each preset is saved at a given size, indicatedbelow the brush preview icon in the presetlist.You can alter this by dragging the masterdiameter slider.2The Opacity of the brush defines howtransparent the paint is that is, how
much of the colour underneath showsthrough the paint. By default it is set to 100%,but you can reduce this using the Opacityslider in the Options bar.3Flow is like opacity but is a dynamicproperty.Whereas opacity sets a valuefor the maximum amount of opacity, Flow setsthe minimum amount.With the Flow settingvery low, say 10%, and opacity set to full, youcan paint with what seems like a low opacity,except when you paint over the strokes youhave just applied.4In this case the paint builds,
accumulating opacity the more andmore you paint.This is very useful for buildingup tones and colours in an image gradually.You can see the effect clearly here.Where thestrokes double back and cross each other thecolour intensifies. The downside is that theindividual dabs are also visible.
The key to opacityYou can also reduceopacity using thenumeric key pad.Pressing the 0 key setsthe opacity to 100%,while pressing the [5]key sets the opacity to50%. Pressing the [1]numeric key sets theopacity to 10%and so on.Nimble numeracyTo get an intermediateopacity value like 15%,type 1 followedquickly by 5 on thenumeric keypad.ADOBE PHOTOSHOP TOOL TECHNIQUES FOCUS GUIDE
