How to Turn Brush Anti-Alias Off

Save

Adobe Photoshop's "anti-aliasing" paintbrush tool smoothes the edges of lines and strokes, displaying a gray, fuzzy fade from the black color of the paint to the white background. You cannot turn off anti-aliasing, but the application provides an alternative aliased tool instead. Photoshop's pencil tool does not alias its edges, making it work better with the bucket tool. Switching to the pencil tool is straightforward and only takes a few seconds.

  • Open Adobe Photoshop and your image project.

  • Hold "Ctrl" (Macintosh) and click the paintbrush icon within the toolbox. Right-click in Windows.

  • Click the "Pencil Tool" and draw your shape. The tool isn't aliased, providing sharper edges.
