Amazing Photoshop Tip – coolest way to change opacity, flow, fill, feather, text size, etc.

There are lots of ways to change opacity, fill, flow, strength, exposure, strength, tolerance, and text size in photoshop.  But the “coolest way” is a little known method.  Instead of typing it in or clicking on the arrow and using the slider, you can do what I am about to tell you…

Here are the screen shots of the some of the top toolbars where you can use this trick, and also the layers palette toolbar, so you can see how it works.  You just hover over the word “opacity” or “fill” or “flow” or “tolerance” or the “Tt” or “strength” or “feather” or “exposure” and it turns into a double arrow you can slide.  Totally easy and cool.  And you just may say… “I did not know that.”

    Now how come I never even noticed that the little double arrow showed up there? Of course, I’ve never hovered over those words, but I’m sure I’ve moved my mouse across them on my way to somewhere else! LOL

    Very cool and I’ll be using it all the time from now on! 😀
