In photoshop CS6 when using a brush to paint, the actual painted brush mark is smaller than the preview of the brush size.
Incase i mixed you up with my explanation, I’m attaching a pic that shows (on the left) the size of the selected brush and how small is the painted mark. And on the (left) what i see on a different computer where the brush's size is the same of what is actually painted.
note: the colour i paint is white and the black circle is the brush size preview.
Its very strange because i know that what is painted should be exactly the same diameter of the brush. But that is not the case on the left sample.
Please help im disorientated and cannot work!
Thats exactly whats going on, many thanks!
Anybody know how to fix this in Photoshop CC 2018 with a windows 7 operating system?
Solved the problem!! Shape dynamics is on by default in Photoshop CC 2018. Go to Window/brushes/ Brush Settings and toggle Shape dynamics off to correct this situation.
Yes!!! Life saver!
thank you very much!! T.T
Woohoo! That did it!
Of course my cursor is now microscopic on my two massive monitors all the time, but I enabled the "Shake mouse pointer to locate" feature so it enlarges when I shake the mouse back & forth (Mac OS Monterey).
I'm having this problem too, on a MAC, and neither of the "correct answers" shown here has worked for me. I still can't get the target circle to coincide with the painted result, which is about 50% smaller. Why can't I find some Photoshop operation to fix this-- or any other solution?
What version of macOS and photoshop are you using?
