    Anrey , I wanted to ask you one really simple question lol , How can you resize your brush with the keyboard ? With which keys

    • Andrei Oprinca

      with the bracket keys [ ] but those are the default keys. I have set my shortcuts for the brush to be W and Q because it’s more confortable for me. You can check your settings and change them

        Thx :)

    On the layer that you used for the lighting effect, why did you fill
    the layer with white and change the blending mode before you applied the
    lighting effect??

    • Andrei Oprinca

      First create an empty layer go to Edit/Fill and fill it with white. Then turn it into a smart object (optional) and change it’s blend mode to Multiply. Then apply the lighting effects filter.

      The problem with this technique is that you don’t see the image when you apply the filter so you have to do it blindly.

      • Ace

        No, I understand how you did it. But WHY did you fill the layer with white? In other tutorials you simply just added the lighting effect as a smart filter without filling a layer with white and changing the blending mode.

        • Andrei Oprinca

          Becasuse I wanted to try something new but it’s not an effective technique because you don’t see where the light falls.

          The smart object technique is better but some old photoshop versions don’t support Smart Objects

          Oh okay. Thanks…
