Adobe Photoshop: Painting Tools

  1. 1. 1. Brush tool is used for creating strokes of color with smooth edges and is ideal for making soft body parts from scratch.
  2. 2. a. Brush It provides options in setting the size, hardness and style of the brush. It also provides brush style presets that you can choose from and use in painting.
  3. 3. b. Mode It provides blending mode options that is used to set how the color painted by the brush will blend with the current pixels in the image.
  4. 4. c. Opacity Used to set the opacity of the paint applied by the brush tool. The brush tool will maintain the opacity of the paint applied to the area even though you stroke the brush several times without releasing the mouse button. However, paint will accumulate if you stroke the brush tool and release the mouse button several times.
  5. 5. d. Flow This option is used to set the intensity of the brush for every strokes. Until the opacity level is reached and while you are pressing the mouse button , the paint will accumulate, based on the current flow setting for every brush stroke. The flow option is dependent on the opacity value.
  6. 6. e. Air brush If this option is enabled, the brush tool will behave similar to an air brush or spray paint. It will keep on accumulating paint while you are pressing the mouse even though you are not moving the mouse. The paint accumulated is based on the flow value until the opacity level is reached.
  7. 7. f. Brushes palette toggle button Clicking this button will show or hide the brushes palette, which provides brush style presets and other brush options.
  8. 8. 2. A bit harsher than brush tool, so you can make freehand sharp edged lines of color with it.
  9. 9. 3. It is used to replace the color of a certain area in an image. Choose a color by changing the foreground color in the tool box and click and drag the mouse over the area you want to change the color.
  10. 10. a. Mode This determines the Painting Mode. Your choices are Hue, Color, Luminosity, and Saturation.
  11. 11. Continuous It replaces all the colors with the foreground color. Once It only allows to replace color, that you first click on; for example, if you start a stroke on a red area the tool replaces only red pixels. Background Swatch It only replaces pixels containing the current background color.
  12. 12. Limits option controls how the color spreads as you paint. Discontiguous to replace the sampled color wherever it occurs under the brush Contiguous to replace areas that contain the sampled color and are connected to one another Find Edges to replace connected areas containing the sampled color while preserving the sharpness of shape edges
  13. 13. Tolerance Determines the range of colors associated with the sample value. Anti-alias Allows you to smoothen edges
  14. 14. 4. This tool works like the brush tool except the information that it paints with is from the original state of your image. If you have a bit of a mess up, providing you are on the same layer, you can brush out your mistakes to revert back to how it was originally.
  15. 15. 5. Used to turn an image into abstract artwork . Use the history brush tool to bring to its original look.
  16. 16. 6. Used to fill an area with single color. The color fill depends on the setting of the foreground color.
  17. 17. a b c d e f g h a.Fill It is used to set the filling method. You can choose to fill the image with the foreground color or a pattern
  18. 18. a b c d e f g h b.Pattern If the pattern is selected as the fill method, This option is used to select the pattern to be used in filling the image.
  19. 19. a b c d e f g h C.Mode It is used to set how the color fill or pattern will blend with the current pixels in the image
  20. 20. a b c d e f g h d.Opacity It sets the opacity of the color fill or pattern applied to the image by the paint bucket tool.
  21. 21. a b c d e f g h e. Tolerance It is used to set the sensitivity of the paint bucket tool in selecting and filling the image area with color or pattern. Setting this option to a higher value will select and apply a color or a pattern to a wide area in the image.
  22. 22. a b c d e f g h f. Anti- alias If checked, it will apply a smooth edged color fill or pattern to the image.
  23. 23. a b c d e f g h g.Contiguous If checked, only nearby areas of the same color as the clicked pixels will be filled with color or pattern.
  24. 24. a b c d e f g h h.All Layers If checked, the paint bucket tool will select and fill color or pattern based on the color data of all visible layers. Otherwise, it only selects and fill a color or a pattern based on the color data of the activated layer.
  25. 25. 7. Used to make a gradiation of colors. It creates a blending of the foreground and background color when you click and drag it.
  26. 26. a. Gradient Picker- used to select preset gradients and create a gradient color. b. Gradient types Linear- gradient color appears in linear form. Radial- gradient color appears in circular form
  27. 27. Angle- if you click and drag your mouse across the screen, the gradient moves from one side of the line to the other side. Reflected- the gradient color will create a reflection color from the point you started clicking your mouse. Diamond- start dragging your mouse at the center to create a diamond shape.
  28. 28. c. Mode- choose the color mode depending on the effect you want to be for your gradient color. d. Opacity- use to reduce or increase the effect of the gradient color. e. Reverse- use to flip the pattern of the gradient.
  29. 29. f. Dither- use to prevent banding between color transitions. g. Transparency- If a portion of a gradient is transparent, and this box is not selected, the transparent portion will be filled with the neighboring color.
