Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Erodible brush tips & airbrushes, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
Photoshop CS6 includes a bunch of brush enhancements, including a wealth of new…presets that you can load from the Brush Presets panel as well as a few new…painting options and two new kinds of brush, Erodible Tip and the Airbrush. And…let me show you how those work.…I've selected the Brush tool in the toolbox and I also have open the Brush…panel over here on the right-hand side of the screen.…You can get to that panel by going to the Window menu and choosing the Brush Command.…And I'm going to advance to this preset. It's called Erodible Point and it has…its size, 25 pixels, listed underneath it.…
Now in addition to the Size and Spacing values, notice that we have control over…the shape of our erodible tip.…So in this case it's a point, but it could be flat, round and so forth.…Also notice that the Softness value is cranked pretty high, 52%, and the higher…the Softness value, the more quickly your brush is going to erode away.…Now currently I have a nice sharp tip, but we'll see that it rounds off pretty quickly.…

Q: This course was updated on 1/15/2013. What changed?
A: The course was revised to address the new Photoshop features and enhancements bundled with the Creative Cloud update released in December 2012. We added a second chapter to the course, detailing the new enhancements. We cover the Liquify and Blur Galleries, which now support Smart Objects; creating conditional actions; auto-naming merged layers; moving a point with the Pen tool on the fly; creating global default type styles; and copying CSS code from specialty layers. We also cover two improvements to the 3D package included with Photoshop Extended: enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit color and the new default 3D image-based light. We also updated the exercise files with new files for Chapter 2 and added an introductory video to the beginning of Chapter 2 that outlines the improvements.
