Imagine the ability to load color at a bristle level, picking up different colors with each "hair" of a brush — as though filling tiny ink wells. Imagine also the ability to move multiple colors along with a palette knife, dragging them across your canvas or paper. The Brush Loading feature affects how paint comes off a brush and what happens to the pixels underneath.
When Brush Loading is not active, brushes interact with previously applied colors by sampling underlying pixels and then loading the brush with one new color — the average of those that were sampled. With Brush Loading active, brushes can literally "pick up" existing colors, hair by hair. This capability offers truer color interaction, astounding color variations, and better cloning results.
