RIFF format / How to Load them

Key thing is to select the brush tool and select the image hose. All the paint resources are stored in native RIFF format (actually fairly early RIFF format but still support in P2015 etc). Display nozzle libraries panel. right side menu. load nozzle. Simply select a RIFF file from any folder. Apply the nozzle via the image hose brush tool. The artwork is not added to the display for the library, that is only done via the additional command of add to library and you will see the thumbnail appear in the library. You can then select the thumbnail to load the RIFF.

Auto clone effect

You can use the auto clone feature with the image hose and the nozzles. Select the brush tool. select image hose. select variant. Effects and esoterica and auto clone. Sometimes the auto clone is not available, it does seem that if that is the case, you can go to the window and auto painting and then the auto clone should then become available (hopefully). The auto clone fills the image with the current nozzle and is great for creating amazing random filled backgrounds with different sized and rotated etc nozzles. You can stop the auto clone by clicking the document and then perhaps apply an effect and then re-start the auto clone. Another option being using the auto clone on a layer and then repeat it on another layer and then combining all those Painter nozzle filled layers


Use the capture command to create new brush dab. Use the capture brush feature and then apply a variety of different settings to create a new unique brush stroke


Apply them as a continuous stream of paint using the spacing setting for the nozzle which can be varied to create a flow of artworks as well as just a splatter with wide spaces etc across any image. Use paint designs as brush dab splatters, use the jitter feature to spread the applied brush stroke

Combine with effects

Combine RIFFs and effects. Apply a brush stroke and then apply effect such as blur. Apply more RIFF brush strokes and interleave the effects with the strokes and this in turn is a great way of adding unusual depth to artworks

Blending modes

Use them on layers and apply with different blending modes and effects and more. They can either be applied with a blending mode or used on a Painter layer with a different blending mode from the normal

Colorful artworks

By editing the source file, the RIFF file can be turned from a red brush stroke to a blue one or a rainbow colored one or de-saturate the RIFF image (grayscale) or use visual effects such as blurs to the source RIFF and save as a new file. On re-loading, you will be asked to supply the required hose information which is normally the default 1 setting (none of the RIFFs on this site use more than the 1 cell option)


Use a nozzle/image floater and warp command to create wonderful distortions. Save the nozzle using the drop and select (perhaps with some tweakingto improve the alpha channel) and save as a RIFF and reload the item

Grains and how they affect the tool

Lower the grain setting in the general brush strokes panel to change the nozzle into a brush dab using the current foreground color.
