Although the names are the same, the tools used by the traditional artists to paint and

draw are quite different from their digital namesakes. The painting tools (the Paint Brush, Pencil, Eraser, Paint Bucket and Airbrush) in Elements are pixel-based. That is, when they

are dragged across the image they change the pixels to the color and texture selected for

the tool. These tools are highly customizable and, in particular, the painting qualities of the

Brush tool can be radically changed via the brush More Options panel.
