Painter's primarily known as a tool that emulates natural media and it does that in spades. But another side of Painter is what I call through the looking glass tools. These are tools that, because we're in an environment that's digital, you can do things that you can't do in the traditional world, and why stop at just emulating traditional media? Why not take advantage of the fact that we are in this neverland where things can happen that you can't do with traditional tools? The Image Hose is just such a tool and I want to give you a quick look at the Image Hose before we get into the mechanics of it, just so you can see basically what it does.
So I am going to go up and I've already got Image Hose selected here, but what you want to find if you don't have it is, go into your category list and find Image Hose, and then once the variants are up, go down to Spray-Size-P, and I'll get into what this means in a moment. And that's all we want, we just want Spray-Size-P right there. Okay, so we've selected an Image Hose, now we need to get a nozzle file to spray through the Image Hose. If we go down to our Content Selector, the third icon down are the Image Hose Nozzle files.
And I am just going to, in this case, select the Palm Trees, okay. And now I'll just start to spray with this. And you can see what's happening here is this is just spraying a set of different palm trees. And as I do pressure, I can control how small or how large it is. And you can already see I think, instead of having to meticulously kind of draw something like this, this becomes a very easy way to create a jungle, just within literally a few strokes.
So the gist of the Image Hose is that it allows you to take content, any content, and we'll get into how you can even make your own content in this chapter, and spray it out onto your canvas. And it works on layers, so you can even have layered Image Hose elements within a drawing or painting that you're doing. So without further ado, let's get into the Image Hose.
