Question by meg_4220: My Adobe Photoshop brushes suddenly seem too harsh? HELP!!?
My brushes in Photoshop 7 suddenly seem really harsh. They used to have soft edges and such but now all have them are rough and grainy looking. Did I accidentally click something? I don’t know what to do! Please oh please help me!!
I know there are many types of brushes available. The problem I have is the brushes that used to have a soft look to them now are all harsh and grainy! I am quite proficient with photoshop and cannot seem to find out what is wrong.
