Photoshop CS6 allows for the recording of tools such as the brush tool . This allows you to create artwork while recording an action and then play it back at a later time, perhaps at a higher resolution. To invoke this feature, from the Actions panel flyout, select “Allow Tool Recording”.

Two helpful hints from Mike Shaw:

• When recording be sure to chose your brush as part of the action or Photoshop will use the currently selected brush.

• If you are recording the action to play back at a different size, set the units of measurement in Photoshop to percentage and don’t define the brush size as part of a brush preset.

    Had CS6 since Cloud release, never knew about this. I’m still finding new features all the time with CS6! Thanks for pointing it out.
