Brush Size quick set

Post#1 by Mapsking » 05 Apr 2019, 04:58


So I just learned about this by accident, and thought I would share. The default keys to increase/decrease the brush size are [ and ] respectively. If you have a huge, or tiny brush, it can take a while to do. However, if you hit the \ button (right next to ] on US QWERTY keyboards), it automatically sets the brush size to the default of 20. Also, of note, if you have issues with brushes always changing size, look at the tool options, there is a link to brush default, and also a reset to native size button. Hope this helps someone!

I use the [ & ] keys frequently, but did not know about the \ function. Good Tip!

Hi Mapsking,
I did not know this tip about the \ key, I have not tested it yet, but it's a good short cut.

I share through this link a video that shows how to configure the Gimp so that you can regulate the size of the brush using the mouse. I hope it's useful to someone.
