What are Brush Settings?

Brush Settings influence how the brush tip is applied along a brush stroke. These settings can include hardness (feathering), spacing, angle, opacity, flow, pressure sensitivity, texture, scatter, color dynamics, blend modes, and more. Photoshop lists twelve brush settings, each with additional sub-settings.

The most common brush settings include:

  • angle or pose
  • hardness
  • opacity
  • scattering
  • spacing
  • texture
