Photoshop Tip: Tool Preset
I’ve been a solid Photoshop user since 1991, but I’ve never used Tool Presets.
Then I started using the amazing Frenden Brushes, and those are accessed through the Tool Preset window.
Quick sidebar: Frenden Brushes are phenomenal, and if you’re doing digital art in Photoshop, you should definitely give them a look. And if you’re a MangaStudio user, the Frenden Brush set for that application is nothing short of astounding. And although I haven’t personally tried them, I think highly enough of longtime webcartoonist Krishna Sadasivam (PC Weenies) to point you to his (free) MangaStudio brushes.
Photoshop Tool Presets are a great way to streamline your workflow. If you’re an InDesign user, you can thing of them as “Style Sheets.” Clicking on a Tool Preset will change all of the settings of that tool to a desired combination of variables.
