How to Draw Smooth Lines in Photopea

When we need to represent something, we sometimes have to draw or write it in our handwriting instead of typing.

Photopea and Photoshop aren’t able to draw smoothly by default, so many artists have difficulty drawing or writing smooth

This tutorial was prepared for the beginner who doesn’t even know how to use photopea. It explains not only how to draw smooth lines, but also how to use the brush tool.

With the brush tool, you can write and draw in photopea.

So if you want to learn how to draw/write smooth lines in photopea, then let’s get started.

Brush Tool Properties

Before we get into how to draw or write smoothly first we need to know about brush properties for better understanding.

First, create a new project using the keyboard shortcut ‘alt+ctrl+n‘ change resolution if you want and then press enter or click on create.

Now select the brush tool from the toolbar or use keyboard shortcut ‘b‘ and you can change color from the color picker at the end of the toolbar.

When you select the brush tool its properties then appear below the menu bar. Now click on the brush properties icon.

Now you can increase or decrease brush size and hardness from the sliders.

You can also select brush type from below.

Now there are different types of brushes here including hard brushes, soft brushes, markers, etc.

Soft brush
When you draw something with a soft brush its adds softness at the edges of the drawing.

Hard brush
When you draw with a hard brush it adds hardness to the drawing.

When you draw with a marker it works exactly the same as the real-life marker works.
These were the brushes type that is used the most in photopea.

Now you can change brush blend mode beside the brush properties. And you can decrease or increase its opacity, flow, and smoothness.

Now if you notice I have demonstrated below what will happen if you decrease the opacity of the brush.

Decreasing the flow adds a softness to the brush drawing.

Now when you decrease the smoothness of the brush it draws smoothly.
