When stroking a group of separated paths in Photoshop with a brush, the program paints from top to bottom, left to right. Is there a way to revert the way from bottom to top?

In the example image, I would like using this sample custom brush over the paths so the visible tips would be the bottom ones instead of the top ones.

  • It's not possible to flip the image vertically since it's an irregular shape
  • This custom brush is a simple shape to make this question more understandable
  • It's a step in an action

    You can't flip the image, but why not simply rotate the canvas 180, paint the stroke, then rotate back? – 13ruce Nov 13 '18 at 13:16
  • @13ruce It's something similar, I put it in an answer – Danielillo Nov 13 '18 at 14:38

Ok, I've got the answer in the Adobe forum

  • Make the path from bottom to top


  • Flip the path horizontal/vertical, stroke the path in an empty layer and flip the layer vertically
