Automatic Proportional Brush Size Adj. Based on Picture Element Size

-I have many favorite brushes and use auto-painting most frequently.

-When an element within the picture requires smaller brush-stroke sizes, I use the 'B' key to adjust and and manually paint that area.


is it possible to design a paint patch that scans the picture, in my case a photograph, and adjusts the brush size to the size of the elements or features within the image?

This would save a lot of time and thought maybe, through SA's normal course of processing the image, there may be a point where the image analysis has already rendered the data necessary to accomplish this.

Anybody else ever ran across this thought?  John?

Could you explain a little more what you mean by this. What elements of the source image would the 'smart' brush be looking at to choose a size?

Hey John,

I mean parts of the image such as a tree trunk versus the leaves or say in a portrait, the brush size for the eyes would be smaller than the face; or the face brush strokes are smaller than a background flat wall.

Does that clear it up some? Thanks. Frank

There are brush size modulation options in the brush modulation control panel to modulate the brush size based on texture or local color range. So those features might give you some of what you want today.

The path start regionize generator options break up the image into a series of regions. So that's another approach.

Thank you John, I will give it a try.
