View Full Version : Question about Photoshop Blending-Tool

Hi, I'll make it short:
What Brush Settings can you recommend for Photoshops Blending tool (for a tablet)?

Photoshops blend tool is a bit clunky, but you can get decent results with it if you know the workarounds, such as unchecking the spacing option in the brush parameters. Speckled brushes can work pretty well so try those. But if you really want great blending, you should try Corel Painter (free trial version available), because it's got blending tools that are light years ahead of Photoshop's.

Thanks for your insight.
Recently I watched a Gnomon Tutorial by Chet Zar. He used the blend pretty instinctive and never told (like so many Gnomon teachers), what brush settings he uses. He just said something like "I use whatever popped up as a tool, when I start Photoshop" and swaps from blender, to burn, to brush tool and never describes his options. I was trying to paint along, but it seemed impossible. In the past I swapped from PS to Painter, back and forth and it seemed to be the most reasonable thing to do. (painter blenders just appear to be more variable).
You second my opinion, until now.
Just to let you know, what this is all about. I'm still searching for a way, that works best for me. The pro with photoshop is the aftereffects compatibility and toons are a pleasure. (importing painter layers into aftereffects can be a pain sometimes)
Just to explain my point a bit more clearly...
I'll check the brush settings you recommended, thanks!
