Hi,

Something is wrong with my brushes in CS5. If I select a brush, the stamp tool or even the dodge tool, all I get on screen is a cross hair cursor not the normal round shape - even when I increase the brush size to maximum. Anyone have any ideas how to get this back to normal?

Any help appreciated.

Jonathan

No worries, the only reason I know is that I spent 4 hours one day trying to figure out the exact same thing!!

LOL, yep!! if you accidentally hit the Caps Lock key or have it previously on when you open photoshop and you have the crosshairs instead of your normal brushes. Simple fix, but you have to remember it.

I often thought the crosshairs result when your memory is low?

You cannot alter this in the prefs AFAIK… It's default PS behavious, and has been forever.
