Larger brush sizes?
Hi all,

Does anyone know how I can set GIMP to show larger brush sizes?... or create larger brush sizes.

Thanks,

digiday

Hi Ofnuts,

Thanks for your reply.

But when I (#1) click on the brush style button, I don't get the "brush section dialog" that you are describing.

And when I (#2) click on the brush tool button, I still don't get the "brush section dialog" that you are describing.

Please click on the attached screenshot.

Can you clarify, please?

Thanks,

digi

RE: Larger brush sizes?
Well, no thanks to the online instructions, which has buried the instructions about accessing the "brush editor", I finally found it from just clicking everything in every panel that I could find.

Finally, by clicking the brush style button, then the little brush icon on the bottom-right of the brush style choice panel, then I get a separate brush style panel that is a separate palate, and on the bottom of that, then I clicked the blank page icon, second from the left... and that finally brings up the "brush editor".

But stranger still is that if I choose any specific pixel size, like 600 pixels, it makes a brush 20 times that size... so big it just turns the whole image the color that I was using for my tests. So if I make a brush that says it is 30 pixels in size, then it makes a 600 pixel brush... this makes perfect sense, right?

I'm not sure why this little tid-bit about finding the brush editor is so difficult to find in the instructions, even with a thorough search. I found every other useless fact about animated brushes and everything else.

Later after discovering the brush editor by accident, I was finally able to find instructions about how to find and use the brush editor in section 3.2.2.3. "Buttons at the bottom"... this would have been very helpful to have found a reference to at the starting level in the instructions under "Brushes".

I misunderstood Ofnuts' instructions when he/she wrote, "second icon at left at the bottom"... I was looking for an icon on the left side at the bottom, not at the bottom on the left side... sorry.

So never mind.

Thanks,

digi
