Arrow How Do You Use Glitter in PSE11?

I don't use PSE but a customer asked today how to get the glitter to attach to the brush in PSE. I advised her to add a new empty layer and apply the style to the layer and then use the brush.

I know there are many ways to do things in PS and PSE so just looking for the simplest way.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Default Re: How Do You Use Glitter in PSE11?

This question made me wonder about using a Glitter style as a brush. I fired up my PSE11 and here's what I found. A Glitter style has to be on a colored layer and not a transparent layer to show up. A Glitter style can be used as a brush by doing the following. Paint a color dot on a layer and select a Glitter style on that layer, in PSE that's in the effects. Now the Brush is Glitter. Then you can brush the Glitter on that layer. This will only work for that layer, however you can change the brush type for that layer and paint away. And of course, make more layers with Glitter styles or other styles. Of course this works in CS.

Sue, I use glitter styles on transparent layers all the time and simply add it to a dot like you said and then continue painting ... I love using my styles to paint ... it can be very cool. It's a great way to give a little highlight to hair etc
