PS& brush names / Edit>Fade command

    PS& brush names / Edit>Fade command

    I guess this is the danger of being self taught. I just realized that PS brushes have NAMES! That sure makes painting with them easier than just using the thumbnails. lol

    Also the Edit>Fade command seems to work on all filters...including Plug-Ins! ^5 :-) This is really cool. Especially with the Medhi kaleidoscope filter. Attached is a foxglove picture manipulated in such a way.

      You know, I don't think you ever learn Photoshop. I think the way to do it is to choose a little corner and just explore the heck out of it.

      wow just done a double take on what Chris has wrote you can fade a undo ? must investigate that one, oh no thats the ironing gone by the board again

      Nasturtium I have often wondered if the creators of photoshop know how to use ps to the max ?

      I like to do video tuts every now and again as i learn things that way, it may not be anything new to me but there may be a new shortcut or a way of doing things i hadnt considered etc. and then promptly a month on forget all about it and start learning all over again

      You can fade "undo"!!!??? How cool is that!?

      I think the makers of PS may be surprised how it IS used sometimes. lol. Yes, I'm learning new easier ways to do old the alt+cancel in curves & levels will revert to default. Very handy to know.

    PS changing brushes mid-workflow.How do I stop it?
    by skoobey
    So... um one of those silly questions.

    I never really work with special brushes(I mean I do change scattering, pattern, transfer and shape dynamics, but all using the default round brush).

    What keeps happening all day today is that PS switches between brushes while I am...

    Favorite brush
    by skydog
    I know there are a lot of brushes out there, but I was wondering what was your favorite brush (where can it be found) and why (how do you use it?).

    Q: What is a soft brush?
    by e.b.west
    OK, here it is:

    I'm starting to progress(?) from just using filters to also using brushes. Many of the tutorials I read say "use a soft brush". What exactly is a "soft brush"? I'm using Elements 2 and I beleive most of the brushes are the same as PS.

    Two color brush
    by Guest
    This is one that has bugged me, getting 2 colors on one brush. Painter does it, and tonite I found a brush in PS7 that will, but it's not as easy to control as the one in P6/7. So, if there are any PS gurus here that know how to make brushes and modify them, come on down.
    I've got a screen cap...

    never made a brush, need one having problems.
    by artmaker
    Can't believe I never did this before, never needed one. Do now!
    In help, it states select some part of image, go to edit/define brush preset.

    So ok, I have a basic black on white graphic, select with wand, tolorance at zero, and edit define brush IS GRAY!
