I use both painter and photoshop. I like Painter better for mostly everything. I use photoshop to use my texture brushes. I was wondering how I can make photoshop do 5 things

1) Blend colors together like the oil brush does in painter
2) Simulate the watercolor brush in painter
3) Spin the Canvas wihout puting your arm in weird posiions.
4) sketch and draw smoothly like the Scratch board ool.

My of the functionality in painter can be faked in PS (the same guy designed both brushes). Things in PS are just a bit clunky.

These are my guesses:

1) Blend colors together like the oil brush does in painter
Usually a two stage process: 'mass in' then blend. Soft brushes, shaped brushes, low flow rates (3ish or 4ish) and blur can all be used.

2) Simulate the watercolor brush in painter
Dunno. Will play tonight and see. Probably layer blends and simple transparency. .

3) Spin the Canvas wihout puting your arm in weird posiions.
Nice if it could be done. Try flipping your canvas as well as rotating.

4) sketch and draw smoothly like the Scratch board ool.
cant a simple, small brush do this? Not a huge experience in painter so I cant be sure. If the brush is a bit 'jumpy' then try playing with the spacing.
