Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video Introducing the new airbrush: part one, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features: Brushes.
In this video I'm going to introduce you to the new airbrushes.…These take advantage of the new airbrush tip type and its design to simulate the…atomization of dye or paint into very fine droplets.…It gives a different kind of airbrush than you're used to, with the normal…Photoshop brush that's been in Photoshop forever.…I have a set of tool presets and you'll find them in the Tool Presets panel's…fly-out menu, and if you go down you'll see airbrushes; those are the brushes.…
I am also going to include as I did earlier with the Artists' brushes, a sorted…version of this list.…Rather than be sorted by tip type, which I've found over time is a little…difficult to quickly get to a behavior you want, by organizing them by behavior…you get what I feel is a better way to get to the brushes.…They start out as Opaque brushes, which lay down color, then next it goes to…Blenders, which do not lay down color; it only moves color it finds underneath of…it, and finally you get to the Cloner category, which I'll be going into more…
