Hello. Hoping someone can help me with a Photoshop issue.
When retouching, the selected brush size shows a smaller "cloning circle" than what I selected. The cloning seems more precise as well. It seems like a cursor preference because this also happens with the Healing Brush tool, and Burning/Dodging tools as well. For troubleshooting purposes:


- I'm familiar with the difference between the soft/hard brush

- Photoshop Cursor Preference is set to "Normal Brush Tip" and the cursor is set to "Standard"

- My old MacBook Photoshop settings clone correctly (as well as the other tools stated above). Meaning, selected brush size clones the size selected.
- I've cross-referenced the preferences between the two MacBooks as well. Both appear the same but am clearly missing something.

- All my data was transfered from my old MacBook to the new MacBook

 

Attached an example using different brushes. Thank you in advance.

The first thing to try is:

macOS > Apple menu >  System Prefs > Accessibility > Display.

Set the size to Normal and see if that fixes it.

Jane!

Thank you so much! I knew it had to be something simple. Never occured to me to go to Accessibility.
I've been living like this for days and too lazy to reach out. Thanks again! You made my day.

You're welcome, @cottoson. It was something I had to learn once, too!
