Photoshop :: Brush/tool Not Showing Up

Dec 12, 2005

My brush size circle does not show up...just the cursor. I change the size to everything from 1 to 300....nothing. Sometimes a shutdown and restart helps, so I think it may be a lack of computing power.

I can sometimes get it back by going into preferences and changing the brush size to standard then then back to brush size...but that's a pain in the but.

Photoshop :: Brushes Showing In Brush Preset Fly-out Window - CS6

Apr 25, 2013

I've loaded a set of brushes I created into CS6. They show up fine in the menu bar brush window, in the Preset Manager, in the Brush Preset palette above my layers palette, but they will not appear in the brush preset fly-out window. This is where I do all the manipulating of my brushes, of course, so this is essential. I have created many, many brushes and done this many, many times and have never had this problem.

Photoshop :: CS3 In XP Pro Not Showing Tool...

Oct 20, 2008

I cannot see my lines, paint or clone results after selecting and using any of these tools. The history shows that I have used them but I cannot view the results on my screen. I can select a tool such as paint brush or pen and draw on my image but I cannot see where I have just drawn or painted. This is also the case with the dodge/burn and clone tools. Any global changes such as contrast, color or brightness will work fine, it's just the tools.

I have tried reinstalling Photoshop (CS3) as well as did a clean install of Windos XP Pro SP3. Changed video cards and updated all bios and drivers.

Photoshop :: Tool Selection Not Showing Up...

Jul 16, 2008

For some reason the tools in my photoshop are not showing up correctly on the cursor when they are selected. For example, normally when you click the brush tool, the cursor changes into a circle which shows you the size of your brush, but for some reason, all i am getting is a little " + "

Have i changed a setting somewhere? Does anybody know how i can get the cursor to go back to the way it should be. I just want it to be a circle when the brush is selected so i can see the size of my brush.

Photoshop :: Tool Presets Keep Showing Up Alphabetized?

Mar 3, 2012

I have a list of brushes in the Tool Presets. I go to the Preset Manager and organize them in an order that makes sense to me, then I Save the presets with a name in the Tools presets. Just to be sure, I save the workspace with a new name.
If I close PS and reopen it, the tools appear in the Tools Presets, but not in the order I saved them earlier. They are all in alpahbetical order again.

I've gone through this several times, and it seems I am doing it right. I must be missing a step somewhere. This is on Windows 7, 64 Bit, Photoshop 5.

Photoshop :: Spacebar Shortcut / Hand Tool Showing But Not Working

May 15, 2012

Running the CS6 trial on a Windows 7 Laptop (x64). I was in Photoshop (64), and noticed that when I held down the spacebar to pan the open image, the hand icon would show but the tool will not work. No matter how many times I click and drag, the image stays still. If I select the MANUALLY select the hand tool it works, but the spacebar shortcut key is non-functional. This issue persists across both the 32 & 64 bit versions of Photoshop.

Photoshop :: Selection Brush Tool In CS5?

Apr 2, 2012

I recently moved up from Photoshop Elements to CS5 which included a Selection Brush Tool in addition to the Quick Selection Brush.  The Selection Brush Tool allows you to paint a selection free style without being bothered by the "Quick" feature that provides guesses about where you might want to select.  I could not find the Selection Brush Tool in CS5.  Is there one?  The lasso is not as easy to use.

Photoshop :: Use Brush Tool Twice On Same Area

Mar 16, 2013

Can I use the paint brush twice on the same area without having different scales of the same color? I would like to keep the paint brush smooth but the problem is that when the same area is painted twice, the color in such area darkens.
Is it possible to lock the paint brush to one stroke of paint? If an area is painted, is it possible to automatically skip that area when painting? In other words, is it possible to have the brush effect only once over a given particular area even if it is brushed over twice?
