Who is gonna be brave enough to do a tutorial on the individual brushes?


Some were easy enough to figure out but some have me perplexed. (Freckles brush worked perfectly if you pick the right color...and freckles are trendy right now.)


So please, help a sister out!



Yesi, check the symbols assigned to the studio retouch brushes. They provide a hint as to what the brushes will do. Some will 'dodge' (lighten) the image, some will 'burn' (darken) the image, some will smudge colours, or inpaint blemishes. Some just paint. The symbols should match the tool symbols on the left of screen. The ? Will explain various tool functions.


when brushes are assigned in this way, you don't need to select the tool. The brush assignment does that automatically. When brushes have 'Don't set' as the set preference you can manually select any tool to use with that brush. You can set any tool to any brush. Just tap and hold the brush, select edit and select an associated tool at the bottom of the settings page. Another advantage of associating a tool with a brush is that the brushes name becomes visible.

Hope that helps/makes sense. :)
