'Mud Slice' Photoshop Pencil brush

‘Mud Slice’ Photoshop Pencil

Actual brush stroke of the Mud Slice Photoshop pencil

Brush stroke painted with Lana’s Mark Photoshop Gouache Brush

A semi-dry yet creamy finished gouache brush with a very even opacity distribution, ramping up smoothly from transparent to opaque, this natural medium fibered brush has an easily controllable flow and even tapering making it versatile as both a fill and a drawing brush.

'Sharp Eraser' Photoshop Eraser Tool

‘Sharp Eraser’ Photoshop Eraser Tool

Comparison between Photoshop and GrutBrushes Eraser Tools

Photoshop’s default eraser, has a soft edge, even with the hardness set at 100%.  GrutBrushes Sharp Eraser is an eraser tool for Photoshop that gives you a sharp, but still ever so slightly anti-aliased edge that is crisper than Photoshop’s much softer default eraser.

'Graph Paper 40' Photoshop graph paper tool

‘Graph Paper’ Photoshop Fill Tool
[baslider name=”GraphPapermaker”]
Turn any paper texture into graph paper

This graph paper tool preset will quickly fill a blank layer with a graph texture grid. Apply it to an empty layer and any paper (or other) texture below it will be instantly turned into graph paper. Not simply a flat grid of blue lines, this grid texture has an organic, print-like texture for a more integrated appearance.

'Graph Paper 40' Photoshop graph paper tool

‘Square Crop’ Photoshop Crop Tool Preset

Photoshop square crop tool preset - good for instagram

This preset quickly sets the crop tool with a Square 1:1 ratio

If you frequently need to crop a lot of images to a square 1:1 ratio format, (for instagram for example) add this preset to your GrutBrushes Tool Panel for quick access. This simply selects the Crop tool and restricts it to a perfect square (width to height ratio of 1 to 1) to quickly trim the edges off your rectangular pictures.

When this set it is updated, you can simply download it again from your account page to get the latest update. I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think.

      Hi Hanafi!

      I’ve never heard of anything like that happening, sorry to hear that. I haven’t been able to reproduce that problem nor have I heard of it happening with anyone else, I will look into it and let you know here if I come up with anything. If Photoshop keeps crashing, and you want to try to investigate send me an email and we can look into the crash logs. Thank you for letting me know, if anyone else has that experience please let me know!
