Using The Brush Tool
let's talk about those fun bonus files, But I have put for you, so I'm gonna go open them. So you get all the files and they're all organized like this. So they're sort of in little categories based on what we're doing. So hopefully that makes them easy to find, because there's a lot. So I didn't want to just dump them all in a folder. So I'm going to select these two images and we'll talk about this one first. So this image, when you do this at home, I'm not going to do it here cause I will spoil the surprise. But, um, there's a special little hidden message that will appear all that. I guess all I'll do it just to show you. But the message won't appear here, but I'll show you what you need to do to do it at home. So I'm gonna get my brush tool, and you can pick, um, any color. It doesn't matter what it is and get your brush tool. It doesn't even matter what kind of brush you have right now. It won't matter. But just pick your brush. It doesn't matter. Like what your settings are gene...
rally. Hopefully, the defaults should work, and then you'll just start painting so it will behave differently on your file at home. But you'll just start painting came and then I want you to practice switching tools with your keyboard. And so, if you want to paint in a different color, you could press, um, I for the eyedropper tool, and then you could come over and click to sample a color from this colorful cake. And then you could press be to go back to your brush and then you could paint again with this different color, and you could repeat that process. But you could also make use of like a ninja level keyboard shortcut, which is called a toggle keyboard shortcut. So instead of actually switching to the eyedropper tool and then switching back to the brush, some tools have inherent relationships. That front a shop makes even more accessible with these special keyboard shortcuts. So when you have the brush tool, you can just hold down the altar or option key, and as long as you're holding it, it changes to the eyedropper, and then I can click to sample the color. Then I just let go of my keyboard and keep painting. So is really easy to just hold down. Alter option. Let's click another color and keep painting. So at home, you can just scribble like this, but it will magically create a secret message. I thought this was so cool when I made this up. So let's just spend a minute on it. Just kidding. But, um, I was really excited, so I hope I hope everybody at home really like that. So anyway, at home, get your paintbrush, sample some colors, do some scribbling, and you will get a secret message that appears here that include the URL where you will get a download for a What is it called Album Border design Action. Yeah, it's a nifty thing. Yeah, very cool. And it should come with instructions on how you use it and all of that. But it can allow you to make little albums and photo shop in, like, 10 seconds. It's amazing. So it's a very good download. So do the exercise is the point and then tag me on Instagram because I want to know that people are doing it because it will make me so excited
