Using Photo Brushes

Typically in Painter, if you want to apply an effect to a specific area, you must first create a selection and then make the desired change. However, Painter allows you to use the Photo brushes to brush on a variety of photo touch-up effects without having to create a selection. The Photo brushes give you a great deal of control in applying photo effects and fixes to specific areas. You can paint on a variety of typical photo touch-up effects, such as dodge, burn, sharpen, diffuse, and many more.
