Tips for Your Photoshop Brush Settings
For digital artists, the Photoshop brush is the most important tool that you need to master inside out in order to take the best out of it. Here are some essential tips that you need for your brush settings.
- Size and hardness. When using your corner brushes, make sure to use the appropriate settings for size and hardness. Size refers to the diameter of the brush while hardness refers to the clarity and sharpness of the edges of your brush.
- Opacity and flow. The next settings that you should be familiar with are opacity and flow as well as the difference between them. These have to do with translucency and buildability of color, in case you want to layer a couple of different brushes.
- Spacing. Spacing refers to the visibility of the space left by the brush tips when you color, forming a jittery-looking line. It can be great for decorative brushes, however, you may need to adjust it to form a smooth-edged line.
- Pressure sensitivity. This is specially useful when you’re are using a pen instead of a mouse. Instead of drawing uniformly dense lines, adjusting the pressure sensitivity allows you to create various density based on the pressure you’re drawing them in.
