    questions from a Newbie

    Hi There,

    I am a newbie.
    What is the "metallic" control? It looks like half a circle?

    questions from a Newbie

    Well met, mrizzy -

    The "metallic" control allows you to make the tools simulate the use of metallic paint, ink, pencil, etc. It will still blend with other brushes and tools, but it changes the look of what you put down so it appears to have metal flakes/suspension in the media.

    The quarter-circle is the control for the effect. Touch it and slide to the right to increase the metallic effect. Slide back to the left to turn it down/off.

    are there any others?

    Thank you for the reply. Are there any other effects or is "metallic" the only one?

    The metallic slider just controls another property of the color you're applying (whether it reflects or not) rather than being a special effect. It's a bit like the Thinners that can be applied to oil to change the physical properties of the paint like density, but because it relates to color specifically and is common to all tools the slider lives on the color picker.

    Hope that makes sense!
