Chapter 1. Tool and Palette Primer > Brush Presets Palette

Brush Presets Palette

Let's look at how Photoshop deals with brushes in general, and then we'll start to explore how to create your own custom brushes. When a painting or retouching tool is active, you'll see the currently active brush shown in the options bar. If you click on that preview, the Brush Presets drop-down palette will appear (Figure 1.52). All of the painting and retouching tools available in the Tools palette use the Brush Presets palette to determine their brush size. Each individual tool remembers the last brush size you used with it, and will return to that same size the next time you select the tool. In other words, the brush size you choose doesn't stay consistent when you switch among the tools.
