Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding brush behaviors, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features: Brushes.
In this video we're going to take a look at the behaviors that are built into the brushes.…I have a set of naming conventions I use for that and I'm going to go through…each one and show you the behavior associated with it.…So I'm starting off with Opaque, and throughout this I'm going to be using the…Flat Fan version of these of various behaviors.…So to start off, Opaque does as advertised, it wants to paint opaquely over any…color that it finds, and so you know even adding new color, you're always going…to be painting opaquely over that underline color.…
Opaque Dry also paints opaquely, but as you can see, it runs out of paint.…So its reservoir is limited and as a result you'll get these shorter strokes…where you see a tail off that you can adjust how long that is, but all of the…Opaque Dry brushes in here are going to have this very short tail.…So it's not going to produce an overly long stroke.…Next up is Smeary, and Smeary also applies color, but what it does is,…especially at lower pressures, it'll tend to pick up some of the color…
