How to Fix Your Photoshop Brush When It Looks Like Cross-Hairs

Grrr, the first time this happens to you, you’ll want to pull your own hair out.  Your Photoshop brush (or Elements brush) shows as cross-hairs instead of the outline of a circle.  The typical response is to visit the preferences area and see an area called cursors. After you realize you did not have the cross-hairs option on, you’ll scratch your head in frustration.  What could have happened.

Don’t beat yourself up .  It’s one of the easiest fixes in editing — 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 you’re lucky enough to see 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.
