What program are you talking about? If it's PS for the iPad (PS Mobile, I think they're trying to call it), you can invert your mask. Make it active, open that strange icon right above the 3 dots (more) menu on the right side, and choose Invert. Brushes can have hard or soft edges. Select the Brush, then in the popout floating "options" bar, drag on the dot above the 3 dot (more) menu in the little bar/panel thing to make the brush harder or softer.

It won't improve brush sensitivity, but it can be harder or softer, more or less opaque, bigger or smaller, and the 3 dot (more) menu provides you with even more options for the brush.

If you want this in another program that doesn't have it, you'll have to say which program you're talking about.

Thank you, Cristen.  I did eventually come across that invert tool.  And I apologize for not making clear what program I was talking about.  Somehow, I thought it was an PS iPad forum.  I'm annoyed that Adobe did not release a thorough tutorial going over every aspect of this program.  I've had to google too much.  The brush feather slider I was aware of and use, but the whole brush functioning is a bit underdeveloped, I have found.

That's a bit of an understatement. <BG> Yes, not enough tutorials seem to be available. It's still such a tiny program, I try to get by with opening every thing, clicking on everything, but a lot of the instruction under the Gear Widget > Input is sketchy, at best, and the Learn tutorials do come up short as well.

YouTube videos when I've searched are mostly of the introduction to iPad kind. But that's why we're all here helping each other out.   :)

RIght now it's a fun, comfortable app to use for a little of this and that—not yet for serious use, but it IS comfortable to get away from the desk when I can and use it within those limitations.  Brushes, however, are barely usable at all, I'm afraid, due to pressure sensitivity issues I have with them. And of course, the lack of a proper brush engine that lets me use my own brushes.
