Blending in Photoshop vs Painter



When you overlay two colors in Painter they automatically blend like real paint but not in Photoshop. In Photoshop I can't get the brushes to blend the colors together.

What settings or brush do I need to blend the colors in Photoshop?

To get things to blend, I use the "heal" tool right above the brushes, and depending what you're trying to do, the main settings I use are "proximity" and "content aware"

Thanks. I'll try that. I was hoping a brush could be made to do the blending like in Painter but maybe PS CS 6 will incorporate that.

I'm new to PS, there very well may be. But that is the tool I currently use, especially for green screening

Hi, sounds promising. Do you know where it is located and is it in Photoshop CS?

Thanks for the link. Do you know how to open the Brush palette he refers to? I see brush-presets, and how are you able to assign hotkeys to brushes? Right now it seems to me like you have to manually change all the presets each time you want a different brush, even in CS5.

Hi Andreas,

To open the Brush Palette, while the brush tool is active (b) select the panel icon in the options bar .
Window->Brushes.
This is for CS3, it should be similar in CS5 or check the documentation.

As for a shortcut for a brush preset, try using actions and set a KB shortcut to that action.
