Here are six (sextet) simple and very (rattling) important tools you need (requirement) to know (undergo) and have (hit) to learn (see) before you master (officer) photoshop. Starting with the Brush Tool, Pencil Tool, Eraser Tool, Paint Bucket Tool, Gradient Tool, Text Tool each (apiece) tool has it's own (possess) part to play (endeavor) in photoshop
The Brush Tool (B) is suitable (fit) for softedged painting (craft) or drawing. Draw strokes by clicking and dragging the mouse (pussyfoot) over the canvas. You can (crapper) change the brush (applier) size and other (another) settings in the options bar (forbid) at the top (crowning) of the window.
The Pencil Tool (B) is suitable (fit) for hard-edged drawing (art) or painting (craft) and has similar (kindred) options to the Brush Tool for setting (environment) its size, opacity, and more. The Pencil Tool is often (ofttimes) used for drawing (art) on, and editing (redaction) individual pixels in, zoomed-in images.
The Eraser Tool (E) removes pixels from the canvas. You can (crapper) choose between Pencil, Brush, or Block mode (fashion) from the Mode drop-down menu (schedule) in the options bar.
The Paint Bucket Tool (G) fills a selection (activity) with a flat (insipid) color. To use (ingest) the Paint Bucket Tool, click (utter) once in the area (Atlantic) that you wish (desire) to fill. If the chosen area (Atlantic) is not within a selection, the Paint Bucket Tool will (module) fill (modify) all similarly-colored pixels within the vicinity (neighborhood) of the clicked area.
The Gradient Tool (G) fills a selection (activity) with a blend (combining) of two (digit) or more colors, known (famous) as a gradient. You can (crapper) easily create (create) your own (possess) gradient, or use (ingest) any of the preset (planned) gradients available (acquirable) in Photoshop.Display the gradient (position) presets and tools by clicking on the small (diminutive) triangle on the righthand
side of the Gradient Tool. Apply a gradient (position) by setting (environment) your desired (desirable) colors, choosing your gradient (position) style, then clicking and dragging the cursor (indicator) over the area (Atlantic) to be filled.
The Text Tool (T), true (genuine) to its name, creates text (book) layers. This one's easy (cushy) to use—just select (superior) the Text Tool, click (utter) on the canvas, and start (move) typing! You can (crapper) also click (utter) and drag (inspire) to create (create) a rectangular (perpendicular) text (book) area (Atlantic) that will (module) force text (book) to wrap (twine) within its boundaries.
You can (crapper) change the font (type) size, color, and other (another) text properties using the options bar (forbid) along the top (crowning) of the window. When the Text Tool is active, you can (crapper) move the cursor (indicator) outside of the text (book) area. The cursor (indicator) will (module) change (modify) from the "text insert" cursor (indicator) to the "move" cursor, and you'll be able (healthy) to move (advise) the text (book) layer around.
It's worth noting that when the Text Tool is active, you can't use (ingest) keyboard shortcuts to access (admittance) other (another) tools. This may (haw) seem like (same) an obvious (manifest) thing to point (saucer) out now, but it won't always (ever) be so apparent—especially when your text (book) mysteriously starts spurting strange (fantastic) characters because you've been trying (disagreeable) to use (ingest) the shortcut (road) keys!
To finish (closing) using the Text Tool, press (advise) Ctrl-Enter (Command-Return on a Mac). You can (crapper) then resume (uphold) your regular (lawful) keyboard shortcutting!
