    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

    Yeah, I totally thought Oregano had just ignored blog's question and was correcting his typing. I haven't been sleeping much. I should just stay out of the lounge, I embarrass myself every time I come in here .

    In addition to turning "Caps Lock" off while Photoshop is running, go to Photoshop Prefs-->"Display & Cursors". You can choose what your brush cursor will look like there.

    Tip: if the brush size exceeds the screen size, the cursor will revert to the cross-hairs until you reduce the brush size.

    So many words...

    So many posts...

    So much effort...

    All because somebody doesn't know what the little light under "caps lock" is for...





    Gawd! We all need to get out more...
