The Brushes Menu

Before discussing specific brushes, take a brief look at the Brushes menu, which you can pull down from the Tool Options bar after you select a tool that uses brush shapes. To open it, click the downward-pointing arrow next to the field that shows the current brush shape. Although each tool has its own set of options, the Brush menu (shown in Figure 7.2) works with most of the art tools, from the Brush to the Clone Stamp tool. (The Pencil's brushes are different, and the Paint Bucket and Gradient tool don't use brushes.) It gives you the capability to select any of Photoshop's preset brush shapes.
