Re: [Gimp-user] Difficulty creating shadows

If you look below the toolbox, you should see the "tool options" tab, which
has a little icon with sliders on it. Click that, then adjust Brush Size
either by dragging the sliding control, typing the number in.

Alternatively you can skip that and just use the bracket keys [ and ] to
decrease and increase the size.  [ = make brush smaller (if you hold it
down, it should go to one), ] = make brush bigger.

Good luck!

How can I reduce the size of the Pencil tool to as little as 1 or 2
pixels?  I
want to draw fairly fine shadows, and have figured out that creating
requires smudging or blurring gradients of black-to-grey, but the default
options in the Brushes toolbox are far, far too large.
