Photoshop Brush Jitter Settings

The Brush Panel in Photoshop allows you to change the shape and behavior of your Brush (tool). If you have a pen tablet, you are going to want to take advantage of the panels ability to sense pen inputs for some of your work (particularly if you are interested in using Photoshop for digital painting)

There are 9 “Jitter” settings that can be controlled through Pen tablet input:

  • Size
  • Angle
  • Roundness
  • Scatter
  • Count
  • Foreground/Background
  • HSB
  • Opacity
  • Flow

If you want to set up a Brush Preset or a Tool Preset, all these settings can be locked down. To better mimic natural media, try these combinations

  • A brush that changes opacity and flow based on pen pressure
  • A brush that change size based on pen pressure
  • If you have a non round brush tip, and a pen that supports rotation detection, set up Angle Jitter as well
