Quick Tip: Instant brush previews
If you're working with the Brushes palette, and you want a preview of what a particular brush stroke looks like without actually having to choose that brush, just pause your cursor over the brush thumbnail for just a moment, and its preview will appear in the Brush Preview area at the bottom of the Brushes palette. A big time saver.
