Question: Changing the brush size

Is it possible in Photoshop to change the size of the brush interactively like happens in Zbrush pressing the S key?
  12 December 2005
I have no experience with Z-brush, but I guess you mean something like holding the S-key and then mouse/pen drag to alter the brush size?

I'm pretty sure the answer is "No" - But wait, there's more!
If you're using Photoshop CS or CS2, you can go to Edit > Keyboard Shotcuts and look under the shortcuts for Tools. You can set a key for increasing brush size and a key for decreasing. It works quite ok I think.

Exactly.It's an easy and fast way to change the brush size without loosing too much time.

Unhappy Please help!

One, stupid question, in photoshop CS, how do you set the brush so it goes from a big size to a small size in the same stroke, also how do you make it fade. I was able to do this in precious versions of photoshop but I canīt seem to find it in the CS version. Thanks.

arielmedel: You select your Brush Tool. Go to Window > Brushes , to make sure you see the Brushes palette. In the Brushes palette click on Shape Dynamics to select it. Under Size Jitter set Control to Fade and enter a number for how many steps it takes, eg. 50. (This means your brush size fades, not the brush's opacity)
For the Opacity fade, click on Other Dynamics to select those. Under Opacity Jitter set Control to Fade and enter what number you like there.
