My brush in PSCC v 25.5.1 on my iMac only shows one ring, as I change the feathr to max the circle get grainy, when I increas the hardness, the circle get sharper.  I DON'T HAVE TWO CIRCLES to show the feathering. I am on an iMac running Sonoma v 14.1.2.

 

How do I get the two circles back?? Is this a know issue??

 

Thank you in advance for your help?

As far as i know, Photoshop has always had just one cursor outline to show hardness.

 

Perhaps your referring to the Red Painting Cursor Preview that one gets when using

control+option, and drag left or right. To change hardness, drag up or down.

 

Visually resize or change hardness of painting cursors

Jeff,  thank you for your reply; however, I was able to see the change in feathering (a visual way to see where the feathering will start - two circles inside one is where the feathering started and the other one is where the brush stops) prior a one of the updates for AI, Now i I can't.  Very difficult to now know where the feathering is......  When I use the [ to make brush smaller and ] to make the brush larger it works as it use to; however, when I use "shift" [ to decease the feathering or "shift" ] to increase the feather, the circle (which is fuzzy on the circumference) goes from fuzzy to sharp  and changes size (if I make the brush with no feather the circle decreases to "say" 1/2" in diameter and If I increase the feather the circle grows to say 1 1/2" in diameter with a very fuzzy circle)  This is different..... than before.......  No way to visually see the effect of the brush and where is feathers out to.... 

 

Again thank you for your

Photoshop has one brush circle. Lightroom Classic has two.

Jeff, I am probably confusing something else, your hint is helpful.  My issue is that I have an instructor who has a PC and his brush is totally different, it shows the two rings.  Oh Well, thanks for your help

If your seeing a video from your instructor, then sometimes the screen recording software can show different cursors than what is really there.

 

Also Camera Raw has the two cursor circles like Lightroom.

The post you replied to seems crafted to post the link at the end that has nothing to do with the question and might be spam, also because the post recommendations are vague (more like general troubleshooting).

It is possible that you’re thinking of the color sampler ring, which is a double ring? In the demo below, I show both types.

First example shown: Previewing brush size and hardness by holding down Ctrl and Option while dragging the brush.

Second example shown: Previewing sampled color versus other colors by holding down Option while clicking or dragging the brush.

I would be a nice addition if PS had the same brush features as ACR & LR, it would be visually helpful to see what is being brushed and what isn't

 

Thanks to all who responded (Jeff, Conrad, et.al.)
