Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Sampling a brush stroke, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
Brushstrokes like these, simple Brushstrokes on sketchpads potentially make…great sample brushes.…What I want to demonstrate here is a different effect that you will get…depending on the number of gray values you capture in your sample brush.…So I have two versions of this, I have one where I have performed a Threshold…Adjustment on the brush and it's all black, or it's nothing, and then we have…this one where we have got various different levels of the gray values.…So quickly, I will run through how those happened.…
First of all, the Threshold, start out with a Levels adjustment and then follow…that out with a Threshold adjustment, move that one way or the other, depending…on how much black or how much white you want.…I want to avoid getting the black specks down in that bottom-left corner.…So I am going to pull it back to about there. Okay!…Now what I am going to do is I am going to get my Magic Wand tool because I…need the whites to become a transparent here and I am going to turn my…Tolerance all the way down, select the white areas and then use those to mask…
