View Full Version : Brush Cursor in PS CS-3/4

12-08-2008, 08:45 PM
Hi, I am a quite newbie at the digital arts.
I like to draw a lot, but I've recently bought a Wacom (Bamboo one) and when I'm using it
i got the main problem that i don't see the cursor where my brush is.

Anyone knows how to change the cursor of a brush ?

Thnx in advance,

You can toggle between a crosshair and the brush shape with the caps lock key.

it won't show brush rotations, but will give you a general size reference.

Thnx, but it doesn't make much of a difference, I'm using a solid round brush (one of the standards.)
With a sice of 2-10pixels.

Go to the cursor preferences and pick the one that shows most clearly when you paint.

Haha, maybe its too small to see. ;) Use the bracket keys to adjust the brush size and see if that helps. Or right click on the canvas to slide the brush size up or down. If you use the mouse do you see the cursor or just not with the Tablet?

Other than that I would keep messing with the brush settings in the preferences of PS. I don't have PS on this machine so I can't tell you exactly where to look.
