View Full Version : Turn off brush smoothing in CS2
December 7th, 2005, 03:15 AM
How do I leave it off by default? It's the main cause of slowdown when I paint, but every time I start Photoshop CS2, it turns itself back on again.
I must be a little dense, because I've tried playing around with those padlock icons on the brush palette, but can't figure them out.

I don't know if you can. The better question is: why would you want to? Yes, it may slow things down a bit, but without it, your faster brush strokes will end up looking like this!

Doesn't look that angular on my workstation :-p
I want it off by default because the only fast strokes I do are on the under painting. I always cover up later with more careful strokes, but initially I just need the big shapes and color to be laid down as fast as I can get it, with no lag.

Make a brush tool preset with smoothing off.

I was doing that before I noticed Smoothing kept turning itself on. Made a new set of brush presets with smoothing off and the problem's still there.

Have you tried using the tool presets instead of the brush presets?

I doubt that its the main cause of lag tho. Brush size and spacing is usually the cause of painting lag..aside from your computer power. The brush presets are saved with the brushes. The other options of that particular brush are saved with the brush as well. FlipMcgee got it right. Turn smoothing off then save a new preset.
