Another confusion to Photoshop 6 uses is the placement of the brush shape and hardness. To access this you click on "Brush Tip Shape" with the expanded view turned on. Here you may also change the spacing of the brush. Note that you can interactively change the size of any brush by clicking on the square bracket keys and that if you hold the shift key down while doing so you can also interactively change the brush hardness. You can see the change in hardness in the icon on the top menu bar. Not all brushes react to this change.

4. The final reworked image. The loose brushing on to the mask creates an equally loose painted feel to the final image.
