Changing a Brush

In the Brushes tab, you can set the shape and size of a brush.

Some brushes display a small red number in the lower-left corner. This is the brush size in pixels. The red number appears when the brush height or width exceeds 20 pixels.


  • Double-click to change the shape of an existing brush
    • The Brush Options dialog box appears:
  • Click the blank area below the brush palette to create a new brush.

Newly added brushes are appended to the bottom of the palette.

Enter or adjust the following brush properties:

Size Sets the height and width of the brush.
Hardness Adjusts how the brush will dissolve into the original image.
Rotate Sets the brush's angle of rotation.
Style Lets you choose a rectangular or elliptical shape for the brush.
