Photoshop Tutorial on How to Color the brush in the fastest possible way.

Hi Gang,

Today I thought I’d show you the fastest possible way to color the brush in Photoshop. (I also thought I’d give you some shortcut hints along the way.)

So, after placing the brush onto a new, transparent layer (Hint: Ctrl (On MAc: Command)+Shift+N to create new layer):

  1. Lock transparency for that layer (Hint: Press “/(slash) to lock transparency)
  2. Select the desired foreground color
  3. Hit Alt (On Mac: Option)+Backspace to color the brushes with Foreground color.


Another hint to reset the foreground and background colors press D and to swap them press X.
