I have to say that as far as brush tools go I prefer the sytem that Jasc's Paint Shop Pro uses. I find their customizeable brush settings to be extremely user friendly and quick compared to Adobe Photoshop. The ability to quickly set brush size,shape,texture,step,opacity, and scatter for both regular brushes and effect brushes is by far one of the best features of the program. I wish Adobe would follow suit. Personally I like Photoshop but I would change a lot of things.
