Random Brushes Tip:
Ever tried to paint with a brush and thought that the edges didn’t seem as clean and smooth as they could be? The way that the hard-edged brushes in Photoshop’s “Basic Brushes” are set, that just may happen when you’re working at higher resolutions.
So, how do you fix that?
- Click on your brushes tab (or hit F5 to bring it up).
- Click on “Brush Tip Shape” and look at the preview image of the brush at the bottom. You’ll be able to see those bumpy edges if you set the diameter at a high size.
- Now change the “Spacing” so that it’s set to about 15% or lower. You can set it to 1% to make it perfectly smooth for those ultra-high resolutions, but if you have a slower computer, that may slow the brush down when you go to use it. So just find a nice percentage where you don’t see all the bumpy edges.
That’s it! I don’t expect many of you to need this tip, but I remember back when I was first learning to paint digitally in Photoshop, and I couldn’t figure out why the edges were coming out so bumpy sometimes. So I thought I’d share!
