How To Use A Brush To Draw A Straight Line Cone

In PS Elements left clicking a brush followed by Shift+Click in another location will draw a straight line.

 

In Lightroom its possible to left click the adjustment brush, then enlarge the brush with the arrow keys, then Shift + Click to draw a straight line cone. This is useful, for example, when painting on dramatic light rays. 

 

I would love to use a brush to draw a straight line cone in PS Elements using the shift + click method. I have tried withgout success. Is this possible? Your advice would be appreciated.

 

Kind regards

Chris

I'm not sure if I fully understand you with respect to how you are drawing the cone.  But, you can create a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer and use a brush to paint the light cone on the mask.  You can use shift-click to draw a straight line on the mask.  Here is a crude example.  (The lines are not completely straight because I quickly filled in the cone between the lines.)

Thanks Greg. Yes, that is an acceptable work-around. I was hoping though, that there was some way to use the same method that works in Lightroom*. Evidently that may not be possible in PS Elements. 

 

Kind regards
