Great tips from Bryan O’Neil Hughes:

    Thanks for the video, I’m just getting started with Photoshop but it is amazing to see what you can do with that amazing software.

    I _did_ know about drag-resize – and drag–hardness! It’s a brilliant piece of UI – it saves a ton of time, clicks and aggravation.

    Size is easy to remember; left is smaller, right is larger.

    Hardness is not as intuitive, but I have a small mnemonic tip: Fluffy: up in the sky. Hard: Down to the ground.

    Thanks for this one.
    Yes, i forgot it, but then i’ve forgotten more than I care to remember…

    Appreciate you sharing, thanks. For those interested, I’ll be adding to this series weekly.

    The fun part comes when going into the prefs/general and tick off the cryptic “Vary round brush hardness on HUD vertical movement” (guess Adobe hired an Alien to make that sentence) – then it’s the opacity that goes up or down instead of hardness.
