Q&A

Q1:Can I make a custom brush that's not round?
A1: Sure. You can even make part of your image into a custom brush. Use the Rectangular Marquee to select a portion of an image. (You can use the Pencil tool to draw a particular brush shape if you want.) With the selection active, choose Edit→Define Brush Preset. The new brush appears on the Brushes palette. Select it and click Brush Tip Shape to set its spacing option. When you're done creating brushes, choose Save Brushes from the Brush menu's pop-up menu to save your current brush set.
Q2:Real airbrushes can spray a very light mist of color. How can I duplicate this effect?
A2: On the Options bar, set the Flow very low. A large brush and a Flow setting of 10 or less will give you the effect you want.
Q3:How do I make my brush strokes look like a watercolor?
A3: Easy. Just click the Wet Edges check box. If you'd rather use “oil paint,” leave the check box unchecked.
