Hour 7. Paintbrushes and Art Tools > The Brushes Palette

The Brushes Palette

Before discussing specific brushes, take a brief look at the Brushes palette, which drops down from the Tool Options bar after you select a tool that uses brush shapes. To open it, click on the downward-pointing arrow next to the window that shows the current brush shape. Although each tool has its own set of options, the Brushes palette (shown in Figure 7.2) works with all the art tools, from the Airbrush down to the Dodge Tool. (Only the pencil's brushes are different.) It gives you the ability to select any of Photo shop's preset brush shapes or to create your own.
