 I’ve been using Photoshop for what feels like an eternity and only recently come across a tip and trick that will help you out if you deal with brushes.

I have known for a long time that you can use the Square brackets for increasing and decreasing the brush size (to increase press ] and decrease press [ ) instead of going to the Brush settings panel

But I recently found out when you are using the brush holding down the ALT key on a PC or the Option key on a Mac and Right Clicking will allow you to make adjustments not only to the brush size but also the Hardness.

 

 

In order to achieve this

  1. Have the Brush Tool selected 
  2. Hold down the ALT key (PC) or Option key (Mac)
  3. Right click holding the button down, then drag:
  4. Left or Right to adjust the Brush Size

  5. Up or Down to adjust the Hardness

As an added BONUS you can also select a colour while using the Brush Tool simply hold the ALT key and this time left click to select the colour.
