Enable Smoothing for greater brush painting control (Photoshop 2018)

Posted on 7/31/18 9:05 AM by New Horizons in photoshop, in tips and tricks

If you’ve ever tried to draw with the brush tool—yes, even with a stylus—you know how cumbersome and unforgiving Photoshop can be. CC 2018’s Smoothing feature makes this task a lot easier.
