Selecting Brush Tip Sets

The Brush Preset panel (New!) comes with a wide variety of predefined brush tip sets, including natural bristle (New!), faux finish, and special effect brushes. Each set organizes specific brush tips by name. Since other Photoshop tools also use brush tips, it’s important to have the right tool (brush tip) for the right job. Using or making do with the wrong brush tip is akin to digging a swimming pool with a teaspoon. You wouldn’t paint a portrait with a house-painting brush, so don’t settle for anything less than the exact brush tip you need to get the job done.
