How to create a Painter Image Hose nozzle

Filed under: DIY,How To,Knowledge,SoftWare — Sagacious Himself @ 6:23 pm

1. In the Canvas menu, choose Grid > Grid Options and set the grid spacing to the width and height that will hold the largest element in your Nozzle.

2. Open a new white Canvas large enough to contain two or three rows of Nozzle elements, depending on how many you plan to include.

3. Create a new Layer containing one of your Nozzle elements and using the Layer Adjuster tool, move that element into the first grid square on the left end of the top row.

4. Create another new Layer containing another of your Nozzle elements and using the Layer Adjuster tool, move that element into the second grid square from the left, on the top row.

5. Continue until you have your Nozzle elements each on a different Layer and placed in different grid squares. If you have, for instance, eight Nozzle elements, you’d have two grid rows each containing four Nozzle elements.

6. Hold down the Shift key, and in the Layers palette, highlight all of the Nozzle element Layers, then use Ctrl/Command+G to Group them.

7. In the Nozzle Selector menu, choose Make Nozzle from Group.

8. Save the resulting image in RIFF format.

To use the Nozzle:

1. In the Nozzle Selector menu, choose Load Nozzle, navigate to the folder where you saved the RIFF file and click the Open button.

2. In the Brush Selector menu, choose the Image Hose brush category.

3. Paint on the Canvas to see how your Nozzle works and if you don’t like the result, choose another Image Hose variant and try again.
