Brush acting like a real paint brush


Recommended Posts

I have done a quick search but could not find and answer to my question. It is probably something very simple but I have not come across it before. Why is my brush now a paint brush instead of the hide/reveal brush. How do I get it back to normal? PHotoshop CC.

Cannot give you a screen shot Damien as I am currently reinstalling CC. However when I select the brush tool I get the image of a brush,not a circle which I usually get and although the size of this brush stays the same it will brush larger or smaller, but colour. I want to hide/reveal on a mask and it will not do so. All images

That changed the appearance but not the behaviours of the brush. I have a black mask. I want to paint white on it to reveal what is underneath. I cannot because the brush is not behaviing. Now I have a nice cross instead of the brush, but it will not increase or decrease in size with the brackets and will not paint white where I want it to.

I have a PC desktop running Windows 10  and Photoshop cc 2016. It is over 2 years old, and has 16GB of RAM. Its hard drive has 608GB free out of 932GB. The last time I shut down was just before posting this thread. I run a cleanup program about once a week.

I regularly restart the computer and the cleanup is done weekly.

Not a screen shot and not the image I was working on, but maybe you can see the brush on the grey background to the left of the image.

Hmmm ...

2700 is a very big brush, of course.  If you take it down in size, is it still the same?

Has this additional problem cleared itself up since the restart?

Yes that seems to make no difference at all. Nothing has changed. I also have CS6 and that works normally. And so did CC once.  I have uninstalled CC and then reinstalled, restarted the computer, reset the workspace, checked all of the preferences, now I have just reset the cursor to normal brush tip and I think it is now working again.  I had it on standard and then precise before.
