Preferences General

Apart from the Brush Tracking already mentioned there are a number of other important and useful settings to be found in the Edit> Preferences menu.

Figure 1.22 shows the controls under the General heading and the top left controls the appearance of the cursor

The Cursor Type is usually best set to Brush and a shape can be selected from the menu alongside.

Enable Brush Ghosting means that the size of the brush can be seen on screen before painting, it changes to the cursor during actual painting.

Enhanced Brush Ghosting stays as a circle but also has a point/line to indicate the centre and in which direction the brush is painting, this is particularly useful when using large brushes as you can identify very precisely the point at which to paint.

Brush size increments control the amount of increase or decrease in brush size when the square brackets keyboard shortcut is used.

The Quick Clone options control the steps that are carried out when Quick Clone is used. I suggest that you set them as in Figure 1.22 to start with.

All other options can be left on the default settings.
