History brush Tool is right underneath the clone stamp tool and it can be identified as a brush which has a little-dashed arrow point behind it.

The keyboard shortcut for this brush is Y.

How to use History Brush Tool in Photoshop

Let’s take an example: Open a photo in Adobe Photoshop, duplicate the layer and desaturate it. Take a new layer, if you apply your history brush strokes over the image.

Then it’s going to revert back to the original snapshot or state that you are in when you created or opened the document in Adobe Photoshop.

Brush options for this tool are same as our normal brush tool in Photoshop.

Art history brush tool is used for making painting effects on your photographs.

It is usually same as history brush but has some few extra options like “style” which decide how will our brush strokes look like. The default setting for this option is “tight short”.

How to use Art History Brush Tool in Photoshop

We have to take a brand new layer and then start painting over it. Art history brush selects the areas of color and applies the strokes based on the brush that you’ve chosen and on the pixels it’s sampling.

You can change the “style” of brush strokes according to your artwork. You can choose the styles by holding the style option menu.

The tool mostly keeps the colors within the boundaries where the colors originally belong, and this is based on how much you set your range of tolerance.
