The idea is that you're working on an image that's bigger (in pixels)
than your screen, so you have to zoom in and out a lot. When the brish
size is relative to the canvas, zooming in makes the brush appear
larger (atakes up more pixels on the screen). If you're working with a
300pixel radius brush and you zoom in from 12% to 100%, the brush is
now half the size of your screen! So you have to shrink the brush back

If the brush size is relative to the screen, then when you zoom in, the
size of the brush on the screen doesn't change, so when you zoom in to
100% you can work on tiny details: a brush that's covering 300 pixels
when you're zoomed out to see the full image might be only 30 pixels
wide when you're zoomed in more closely.
