Question by mooser53: Photoshop CS4 Brush tool & Stamp tool do not reflect the correct size of the area affected.?
To see an example of this cursor problem go to this site and see the Photoshop Brush Problem photo. http://www.flickr.com/photos/84392724@N00/
The cursor is the size of a quarter but the area affected by the brush is like the size of a dime. There is a similar ratio regardless of the brush size, big or small. Also note a characteristic of this unwanted brush is that the outline is very jagged, not a smooth circle. This makes it impossible to do detailed work when one is not sure where the brush alteration will occur. I have seriously searched hours to remedy this issue……. The photo is just a stamp tool cloning a black roof to the sky to show the small area affected vs. the brush size. I use CS4, and no pen tablet.

I think you’d get better answers by posting this in the Software subcategory (under Computers & Internet), or in the Photography sub-sub-category (under Arts & Humanities > Visual Arts).
Otherwise, go to the a forum that deals with Photoshop or with photography (at the Adobe site, or just google it to find others).

My clone stamp is glitching… i have 100% opacity (for the brush and the layer) and am trying to clone stamp some thing but it is only doing it @ about 50%… other things going wrong with it too but impossible to explain b/c there is no repetition of the other mistakes and they come @ random… anyone else have this problem and know how to fix it?
i have this question in online photoshp quiz , not sure exactlly which one is the right answer thogh
This tool works like the Clone Stamp tool except it paints pixels from a designated snapshot.
A. Healing Brush
B. Clone Stamp
C. History Brush
D. Patch Tool
My guess is between B and c what do you thinkl?
My clone stamp on Photoshop CS3 has changed into a pattern stamp. I’ve looked through all the brush presets and I can’t seem to find the regular clone stamp. Anyone know how to get a back?
I’m using Photoshop CS
I use the Clone Stamp Tool to paint textures at work. Recently, the software had to be reinstalled and some of its settings have changed. One thing that now works differently than it had before is the Clone Stamp Tool and I don’t know how to change it back.
Before, I would select an area to clone. I’ll call the exact point I clicked on the Origin Point. Then, as I painted a new area with the Clone Stamp Tool, the clone curser would mimic the movements of my paint brush over the area so long as I held down my mouse button. When I released the mouse button, the clone curser would snap back to the Origin Point.
Now it behaves differently. The clone curser does not snap back to the Origin Point if I release the mouse button. Instead, it maintains its current position. I do not want this as it makes it very hard to paint large irregular areas using the Clone Stamp Tool if I’m cloning a texture from a small pattern swatch I made.
When I click the Brush tool, the stamp tool shows (its a little star shape)! How do I get the brush tool to be a circle again?
By the way, I have a mac computer 10.5.6 (its very new)
I tried clicking the arrow, but the only options it gives is pencil tool, and color replacement tool.
