    Please help me find this brush?

    Hi! I would like to ask for your help: I recently got a new computer, and deleted all things Photoshop on my old one. I now realize that the brush I used (and ADORE) to start illustrating a children's book can't be recovered. If any of you have any idea what this brush might be, would you let me...

    Can anyone please explain the reason behind this "Noise Banding" on transparency?

    I understand gradient banding. There are fixes. For these, usually, I'd just paint over these kinds of issues in images or clone them and smudge them. I can't quite remember if I've seen this in an older Photoshop version – maybe I forgot. When I'm working with transparency and I paint, this...

    Brush Issues

    Hi all, I first want to apologize for not having all the appropriate vocabulary - I'm going to try my best! Starting yesterday, my brush tool stopped completely "erasing" part of a super-imposed image. I am trying to replace a baby's face in one photo by taking it from another photo. Every...

    How to undo the brush on the face

    I wanted to make a little shadow on his face with a brush, but forgot to make a new layer. I cant undo it with Control + Z because i kept on working after i tried to brush, so it would undo everything else too. Is there anything like a History where i can manually remove this specific brush action?

    Overlap/Superposition: color change

    Hi, I was wondering if anybody knows how it works as it does in the image below, when two colors overlap, they change into a different one (specifically one in the color palet used by this artist, @kid_woof on insta). Thanks!

    Convert to old healing brush

    I finally upgraded to Photoshop 2017 and am not happy about the healing brush. Is there any way to go "back" to the old healing brush? I googled it, but on the Adobe site it mentions Photoshop 2015. Is there a work around for 2017? I just really don't like any options given for the new...

    I've created a logo on a transparent layer. It's an eclipse with a carbon pattern and my name going through with a downloaded metallic style. I've made it into a brush, but when I use it on my images, the logo is half transparent and I can see color from the image shining through. How can that...

    Organising Brushes into easy-to-access Folders

    Hi, Am new to this Forum and although I've been using various versions of Photoshop since about 2000 when I first started, I think with Photoshop 4 (may have been 3) I've still got a lot to learn and tend to stick to various methods I know for working and just add new bits and pieces as and when...
