Let's talk about what I think is the really fun stuff, which are the brushes themselves. So if you've never changed your brush, you've got a round brush, and that's great. And that's like the meat and potatoes brush. You use that for the majority of things, but there's so much more that we can do with our brushes. So I'm going to click that down arrow again. This is our collection of default brushes. We see that some of them are round. Some of them have, like this is a fan brush or there's angled brushes. Or there's airbrush brushes, um, spattered brushes. There's all kinds of brushes. The first thing that people usually ask when I show them this window is how come mine doesn't look like you. Years might look different depending on what version you're in, but also, if you come up to this gear icon, we can tell Photoshopped how we want our brushes displayed. So right now mine is displaying the brush tip. But I could also ask it to display the brush stroke. So now it's going to show the ...
tip, and then it's showing What does it look like when I stroke with that brush. So what kind of mark does that brush actually make? Because you really can't tell. Like, for example, this one is a brush that I created, and it's just a tip here, but you can't tell from looking at the tip that you get this kind of stroke with it. So it could be really handy, depending what you're doing or what you're looking for or working with. It might be handy to change the viewing settings here. You can also be viewed by brush name. If that is somehow helpful, you can have that added in so you can change your view settings on. We'll talk about how we can customize all these brushes, but for right now I want to show you some of the presets that are here that are just kind of fun and cool, like this one is the scattered maple leaves brush so we can click on that. And let's say that I choose a couple of colors like red and yellow, more yellow and red, cause I did that wrong. Okay, so remember, if you click once, that will select the color here in your foreground. And if you command or control click, it will load a color in your background. So for this brush, I'm gonna load two colors of foreground and the background color, and then watch what happens. How big is my brush here? I'm not going to see it very well. There we go. When I paint with it, I get May believes. And I get the scattered effect and I get different colors and the leaves are all turned different directions and all of that. So there are some meat rushes that are already programmed right here into photo shop. Uh, such as this will add another layer and grab a different brush just to give you another idea. Like, here's the oil pastel a brush, So not round and you get a much different look than you would with just a round brush. So there's a lot that you can dio
