  1. Oh, heavens! It’s not that hard to reset the Brush Tool (or any other tool). Click on the Brush Tool. Over on the far left side of the Options Bar you should see a little arrow. Click it and click Reset This Tool.

    There are a number of reasons why the brush-based tools (Paintbrush, Clone Tool, etc.) get a little wacky sometimes but one thing you can depend on is that they definitely will go haywire every once and a while. With the Paintbrush, sometimes you’ll use a specialty brush that will change the brush settings and because the code of the novelty brush’s abr file is a little different, maybe a tad too old or too new compared to the version of Photoshop you’re using, the settings “get stuck”. Resetting puts the settings back where they should be.

    If resetting the Paintbrush doesn’t solve your problem, try resetting the program files. With Photoshop closed, hold down Shift+CTRL+ALT and launch the program the way you normally do. Keep Holding The Keys Down until a pop up asking about deleting the program’s file(s) pops up. Release the keys and click OK. It will take the program a bit longer to open while it rebuilds the files.

    If resetting the tool and resetting the program files don’t work, then you’ll have to uninstall/reinstall.
