The Terminal is a very powerful tool that comes with the Mac. It gives access to the core operating system via a command line. One of the cool things the Terminal can for you is to change hidden preferences.

The latest version of Pixelmator addressed this issue and fixed the brushes issue most of the time. Yet, Aperture, Photoshop, and Lightroom still had the same issues. Apple released 10.7.3 this week, and for MacBook Air graphics users, it was a big update.
