Photoshop CS5 shipped with an impressive upgrade to its brush engine – learn how to get the most from it in issue 81’s feature
How to use CS5’s Mixer Brush
When Photoshop CS5 made it onto the scene, the new brush engine won over many digital artists. Adobe now offers users the chance to create incredibly realistic results, and if natural talent isn’t part of a user’s package, the ability to pull information from a photo and give it the flavour of the brush (oils, watercolour, pastel etc) means if you can hold down a mouse button and move it, you can paint.
Issue 81 of Photoshop Creative takes an in-depth look at the Mixer Brush tool, breaking down what can be achieved and how it is done. Whatever artistic skill or persuasion, we’ll help you enjoy digital painting.
