PS custom taper brush

How would you go about making a PS brush that starts at full width every time, but ends in a taper every time?

I'm thinking it would be good for drawing hair, eyelashes, etc.

Hi Doug,

Thought I remembered something like this, so I poked around and here you go ... Brush Pallette - Shape Dynamics Section, Size Jitter control, Change control drop down under Size Jitter to Fade

Fun stuff,
Roger

That worked, but only for stumpy little lines. I'm looking for a line of whatever length I draw that narrows to nothing at the finish. Pressure change makes it narrow at both ends, I only want the one.

Change the number of steps for a different length of line. I don't see how the software could anticipate how long of a line you anticipated to draw unless it did computations after you you stopped ... I don't know how to tell it to do that ... you could make a double brush, one set to fade quickly and one set to pressure so that it would start out fat and the taper per pressure - I havn't tried it, but it makes sense in my head

Or do a line (still tapered) half the length you want it and pull the rest of the line with Liquify.

PhotoShop Brush Palette

These articles looked very promising...

Brush Tip Shape - Creating a tapered brush using PhotoHop's fade and jitter dynamic settings

Tapered Effect - This uses the hidden away ‘simulate pressure’ check box in the paths palette.

Brush Settings, Pane by Pane- Brushes palette windows and an additional options fully explained.
