The radius slider is really confusing me.

Sad The radius slider is really confusing me.
Here are some brushes at radii 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 1, 10, and 50.

I thought brush radius was measured in pixels, or would at least scale in a linear fashion, but this shows otherwise. If this isn't a bug, could somebody explain to me why the maximum brush radius is set to a (small) fraction of the full slider?

Edit: I just found the Size slider that's separate from brushes... Woops. Radius slider still confuses me, but it's not a problem anymore. I don't see a delete button around, either. :/

RE: The radius slider is really confusing me.
Better even, if you want a more definite pixel brush (hard edge) consider using the Pencil tool.

With the brush tool there is anti-ailising going on, even at size 1.00

There is a plugin for win 7 64-bit & Linux where you can adjust the size of the brush by dragging the mouse, you might want to check it out if you have issues using the sliders (interrupting brush work flow)

Drag mouse to resize brush (updated for linux)
