  • I broke my brush :(

    I dont know what I did but now no matter what size of picture or brush I'm working with, I always get the crosshair rather than the round brush. What did I do and how can I fix it?

        PS7 Brush size bug

        Q: What is a soft brush?

        OK, here it is:

        I'm starting to progress(?) from just using filters to also using brushes. Many of the tutorials I read say "use a soft brush". What exactly is a "soft brush"? I'm using Elements 2 and I beleive most of the brushes are the same as PS.

        Healing brush with soft or hard brush?
        by santoro80
        I'm just reading a book "Adobe Photoshop CS5 for Photographers" and the authors says that healing brush is "best used at full opacity and with a hard brush (just about the opposite of the clone stamp tool)".
        I didn't know that. I always used healing brush with soft brush....

        Brush Size Circle
        by Pbrennanca
        In CS4, I can't figure how to change the view of the brush size from the little cross hairs back to the circle.
