Adjustment Brush Resize Tricks

*Adobe Bridge CS4 and Adobe Camera Raw 5 Tip*

When using the Adjustment Brush for retouching, you need to change the size of the brush quite often.  You can use the Left and Right Bracket keys ( [ ] ) to make small incremental changes to the brush size, but the mouse scroll wheel is the quickest way to resize the brush.  If you're using a Wacom tablet (highly recommended), you can still use the mouse scroll wheel.  Place the mouse where you can reach it with your free nonmouse hand and use both together.

    Including the shift key with the brackets (SHIFT+[ and SHIFT+]) will also increase/decrease the brush hardness by 25% increments. Very handy.
