It's about picture brush. Photoshop and some other image editors have it and now the time has come for RealWorld tools to join this club.
Picture brush works like normal brush, but instead of drawing a continuous stroke, it places copies of a selected picture along the way. Here is a simple example:
A picture brush often allows selecting multiple pictures, which are then randomly used when drawing. My picture above uses a brush made of pebbles.
The new brush tool configuration panel will look like this:
The small button marked with (1) is used to select the pictures for the brush. Any image format supported by the application can be used.
When picture brush is active, the controls by the bottom edge of the window (2) are enabled. They control the placement of the images. They may be randomly rotated, resized or scattered around the drawn curve.
The flow parameter of the classic brush works a bit differently. It controls how often is the picture placed on the canvas. Lower flow means there will be larger gaps between the pictures.
Sounds useful to me, too!
sounds really usefull to me and that is one thing that i did not know welldone
