Yesterday I called Creative Cloud Support for Photoshop to ask where the airbrush had been hidden? The guy (in India apparently) who answered did not know! He took up about 30 minutes of my time. Finally I hung up when he wanted to come inside my computer. I called an Illustrator friend here in Houston at his job and asked him and he was in a meeting but sent me a quick email. He said iThe airbrush tool is just the brush tool. Choose or select a large brush and set hardness on or near 0. Took him seconds to text me and 30 minutes of wasted time with Adobe Support! For those of you looking for the airbrush....

Yes, the airbrush is just part of the brush tool now -- just set the hardness low, and turn on the "enable airbrush buildup effects" on the toolbar (denoted by an airbrush icon).

Sorry that support didn't know that, but they've probably never seen an actual airbrush.
