Quick Tip Tuesday: Get Rid of Cross-Hairs on Photoshop Brushes

If you use Photoshop or Elements, at one time or another, your brush will show cross-hairs instead of the outline of a circle.  Likely, you will go into your preferences area and see a spot called cursors. After you realize you did not have the cross-hairs option on, you’ll scratch your head, or maybe start pulling your hair out in frustration.

Don’t beat yourself up when you learn the solution.  It is too easy – your CAP LOCKS KEY IS ON.  Turn it off and boom…you are back in business.  When I tell photographers this, they often feel dumb.  But I promise you it happens to everyone once (unless they learn from a post like this first). Show of hands, has it happened to you?

We’d love you to PIN this graphic explaining the solution so it can help others avoid this frustrating experience.  We will be adding more “quick tips” if this is helpful so be sure to let us know.

    Yep, I have done that. I don’t remember how I figured out that it was the CAPS key, but it was maddening.
