Do you have the caps lock button on?

Photoshop CS4-The size of the brush cursor does NOT properly show the size or area to be affected by the brush?

Question by mooser53: Photoshop CS4-The size of the brush cursor does NOT properly show the size or area to be affected by the brush?
To see an example of this cursor problem go to this site and see the Photoshop Brush Problem photo. 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.

It looks like your brush tip is not a circle, but some other kind of shape.

You might want to get a book or take a class to learn how to properly use a $ 700 program. Otherwise, I’m sure you’ve just wasted almost $ 1000.

In Adobe Photoshop, how do you get the brushes to show as thumbnails?

Question by Floppy Disk: In Adobe Photoshop, how do you get the brushes to show as thumbnails?
On my old computer they showed up as grids, but I recently installed a newer Photoshop and the brushes turns up as just one per line, with the a box on the side showing how the brush looks if you draw a wave. How do I change this?

adobe photoshop help: i want my brush/eraser/etc to not just be a cursor. I want the screen to show…?

Let me try to explain…

Right now, when i use some tools like the brush/eraser/pencil, the screen only shows a cursor on my screen… just a small cross. I want it to show the actual brush size (e.g. a big circle) How can I do this? Where is it in the menu? What is the shortcut key to change this?

I think I sometimes accidentally press the shortcut key (whatever it is)… sometimes it’s in “cursor mode”, sometimes its in “actual size mode”. It really bothers me. I’ve tried different combinations of keys… and tried to look for it in the menus. I can’t figure it out. I’m getting really frustrated. Can anyone help out?

BTW, I’m using adobe photoshop cs4, if that makes any difference. Thank you.

I have Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and CS3 and the colors wont show they turn to black white or grey never a color?

Like when I was using the brush tool I wanted to paint red
but it only showed up grey or black or white depending on the lightness. How do I get my colors to work?

How do I toggle my brush in photoshop to show the actual brush size?

I know I’ve changed it in the past somehow. Right now it looks like crosshairs with a tiny dot in the middle. It’s annoying because it doesnt show how big of a brush is selected and the only way to tell is by actually using it which is annoying. How do I change it back to the circle that corresponds to the size brush that I select?
