    Photoshop problem

    A lot of times my brush won't show as a circle, and just shows as a cross type of thing. So you can't see the brush getting bigger or smaller. Why does this happen and what do you do to prevent it? I know, I've posted it in the Photoshop section aswell, but there is more traffic here.

    Turn your Caps Lock off.

    I've experienced the same problem. I just save the file, close PS, and re-open it. It's kind of a lame solution but it works for me. I'm curious to see if anyone has a real solution.

    Seriously, it's the Caps Lock. Try it. Open a blank canvas, hold your brush over it and turn on the Caps Lock. Then turn it off. Watch what happens.

    HAHAHA! I thought you were talking about caps in his post (internet etiquette). I'm pretty slow I guess. Thanks Oreg

    Ooooh, THAT'S what that's about? That irritates the heck out of me when that happens.
