BRUSH-Photoshop Photoshop CS5 Mixer Brush Tips and Tricks (This is the first of two articles on the Mixer Brush that I've written. The second can be found here.) Having wrestled with Photoshop's new Mixer Brush in CS5 for the past few months, I've come to the conclusion that the new tool is indeed a great addition, however with many caveats. Here are the biggest hurdles I've come across while working with the new Mixer Brush, and how I've overcome them for the time being. 1.) This one stumped me for a long time. As can be seen in the pic below, the Mixer Brush never manages to build up to the actual color you have selected when painting in 8-bits/channel, no matter how many strokes you lay down. When painting in 16-bits/channel, the Mixer Brush works just fine. So the solution is easy - paint in 16-bits/channel! The only problem with this solution is that not all filters are available when working with 16-bit images, so expect to change the mode occasionally if you like using filters. 2.) 3.) 4.) 5.) 6.) 7.) 8.) 9.) Conclusion: Thanks for reading!
