    Stroke direction and brush tip.

    I see a lot of people using square brushes and texture brushes, and I was wondering what settings to use.

    In photoshop is it possible to get the brush tip to follow the direction of the brush strokes, kinda like in Painter or ArtRage? Or is it some kind of plug in.

    When I use a square brush I get a ragged edge to the stroke.

    If you get a ragged edge turn up the spacing on the brush, and make sure it's 100% opaque. Then if you want it to follow the direction of the brush, set the angle jitter to "direction", and it should follow the direction of your stroke.

And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    Thanks a lot. I can't believe I hadn't found angle jitter before. Seems like a pretty basic function. Now I'm ready to use other brushes than the round one.

    (Oh, the ragged edge is what happens when you haven't clicked angle jitter and make a diagonal stroke with a square brush)
