Question by splashum: How do I draw a plain old shape in CS4?
I can not seem to be able to draw a shape (ellipse, rectangle, etc) without it creating it as a vector mask. How do I set CS4 to just draw and let me add masks as I choose?
Answer by That Chick
you can use the pen tool to create your own custom shape (trace the vector shape). make sure you are own a blank layer when you use the pen tool though, so go to the new layer icon.
also, make sure that pen option is on “paths” not “shape layers”

Question by Kaitlin: How do I put my brushes on the side of my screen in Photoshop CS?
I want the brushes eaiser to acess and have them on the side with layers, color, navigator, etc.. When I click the window tab I try to check mark the brushes but I must not know how?
Answer by William
You don’t say which version of Photoshop CS you have. On CS3 click on workspace at the right of the screen, scroll down and click on brushes. On CS4 click on painting. Probably the best thing to do is find a really basic tutorial on the interface.

Question by Kristy Nicole: How to color photoshop brush multiple colors?
I’ve downloaded these brushes but can’t for the love of God figure out how to make them multicolored as shown in the preview image. I’ve toggled the switches under brushes > color dynamics with no luck. I’ve also tried applying a gradient over the brush but naturally it just goes across the brush horizontally or vertical, whatever you choose, instead of going along the seams like the image shows. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Answer by P&G
This isn’t done with a multicolor brush. It’s done with a series of layers and modes.
•Create a black background layer
•Make a new transparent layer above that
•Make another new layer and set the mode to Color Dodge
•Fill the Color Dodge layer with a colorful gradient
•Move back to the middle layer and paint with a white brush
•Wherever you paint, the gradient will be visible
The look in your sample is achieved by using stroked vectors and/or filled selections. Then manipulating the whole group with the Warp Transformation. Experiment with it and develop a look that’s unique to you.
Question by : wacom tablet..Photoshop..Rotate the Brush when you rotate the pen?
im teaching myself how to digitally paint. i use photoshop cs5 and i have a wacom intuos 3 tablet. is it possible that when you spin/rotate your pen the brushes can rotate too??
Answer by Matty B
Kind of. You can go into your brush attributes panel and under “shape dynamics” you can put the angle jitter slider to 0% and set the Control option to Pen Tilt. The brush will rotate based on what angle you hold the pen (leaning toward you, away from you, to the left……you get the idea.) It takes some getting used to but it’s doable.
