Rotate your Brushes in Photoshop

This post will enlighten you on how to change the angle of any brush in the Brushes palette quickly and easily in Photoshop. Before I discovered this method, I used to rotate my layer to get the desired effect of some designed-for-corner brushes in Photoshop. For instance, the brush below is designed for the lower right corner of your canvas.

What if you want to put it on the top left of your canvas? We'll show you the easy way to do it.

1. If you haven't select your brush tool yet, Click B on your keyboard.

2. On the top menu, go to Window > Brushes. You'll see a small window like the one shown below.

3. Click on the 'Brush Tip Shape' to bring out the option shown below:

4. Drag the arrow on the circle to change the angle of your brushes. Also, you can choose to flip the brush horizontally, vertically or both using the Flip X and Flip Y options.

5. And now, the brushes is set to the work with the top left corner of your canvas.
