Making the brush paint 2 x 2?


Recommended Posts

The whole point of the pencil is that it's a 1x1 line. You can't make it bigger. What you can do, though, is use the pencil and then resize the image/layer by 200% using Nearest Neighbor.

You can also switch over to the brush tool, set it to size 2, then turn off anti-alias ( :AntiAliasingDisabled: instead of :AntiAliasingEnabled: )

That doesn't exactly work. Unless your brush is on a common corner of 4 pixels, it'll only fill 2 pixels.

You could use the Rectangle Select tool. Here's how:

1. Select your color as the Primary color.

2. Select the Rectangle Selection tool :RectangleSelectTool:

3. In the Tool bar, set the options to Fixed Size Width:2 Height:2 Units:Pixels

4. Click on the canvas where you want to draw. Hold down the mouse button to move the selection around.

5. When you hit the right spot, press the Backspace key.

Not as fluid as drawing if you need to draw lines, but useful if you need to block out specific locations of 2x2 pixels.
