Result

Using the zoom in function we see the effect of setting the brush shape to oval in the picture above and below it is set to square. The Trap Highlights are set to green to clearly show the resulting shape of the actual traps. In general the goal in trapping is to apply the needed traps but to be as un-noticable as possible. It is generally agreed that the sharp corners of the Square Brush in the traps make them more noticable than the smoother corners of the Oval Brush thus detracting from the shape of the original artwork.
