Additional Details:

Adobe keeps Brushes in two separated files. To locate them (assume you use Windows platform):

1- Program Files >> Adobe >> Adobe Photoshop >> Presets >> Brushes.
And this one holds all Adobe Standard Brushes.

2- The other file which holds user-defined brushes, is the one which pop-up when try to load adobe brush (see the link above)

Play back in Premiere pro CS4 is really slow and hard to edit , how come?

Question by Oily skyes: Play back in Premiere pro CS4 is really slow and hard to edit , how come?
I try to edit in Premiere Pro CS4 but i can’t because the play back is really slow. I have a Macbook Pro core duo with 8 GBs of ram. I watch videos on youtube of people working with this program and they don’t have no delay at all. I have lowered the quality of my footage but that don’t help at all. Some one said its because i use the original file of the camera? what the proper way of doing it?

Answer:

Answer by John Thom
Premiere uses the Hard Drive as virtual memory to do it’s work what it’s looking for is a contiguous space if you could use an external HD connected to your laptop as the “Scratch Disk” this might be your problem.

Without knowing your full computer specs, the input settings and your out source I can’t give you a definitive answer. Yet using Premiere as much as I have that was our biggest one.

Also most of the Editors I know like using FCP on laptops as it can get away with the Scratch Disk problem.

How do I change my brush in Photoshop so that it goes from thin to thick and back to thin?

Question by Ari Berry: How do I change my brush in Photoshop so that it goes from thin to thick and back to thin?
I’ve tried changing it using different brush styles but I can’t figure out how everyone else seems to do it. Any help?

Answer by Happy-go-lucky Rita
Are you using any tablet pen with thousand levels of touch sensitivity, which allows you to vary thickness of lines. I use Wacom intuos4 SMALL for my laptop.

I can’t help you with PhotoShop, as I am not a big fan of that software. I use Corel’s Painter that allows me to customize brushes in any way I like. Sometimes I use PhotoShop for some things.
A lot of digital artists work back and forth between PhotoShop and Painter. My artist sister does it too in a publishing company. Painter has a greater range of brushes than PhotoShop. Besides, you can customize your brushes there.

Painter 11 is very compatible with PhotoShop (both softwares are sisters invented by Mark Zimmer). You can open your PhotoShop files in Painter and work therein. After saving files, you can re-open them in PhotoShop, with all their layers and masks intact.
Painter can recognise PhotoShop files’ layers, masks, etc. In Painter, you can actually open new file and save it as any of PhotoShop formats.

You’ll love Painter as it is the most artist-friendly software you can ever find – and you’ll love their range of brushes as well.
By the way, the interface in Painter is somewhat similiar to that of PhotoShop. Some tools are similar as well. If you know your PhotoShop, then you can easily familiarize yourself with Painter.
