In last updates I'm having problem seeing circle brush (paint and healing) cursor when working with colors similar to cursor grey (grey, teal or brown midtones for expamle).
Sometimes cursor flashes to white, but for very short time and very randomly.
So it's really hard to see where I'm just gonna paint, clonestamp or heal.

It is really annoying and tiring.

Hi Michal,

Sorry to hear that the cursor is hard to see in Photoshop, could you please try enabling "Legacy compositing" located in Photoshop's Preferences > Performance, then relaunch Photoshop and let us know if it helps?


Regards,

Sahil

I thought this would have been an easy fix for adobe. I have the same problem and no one seems to know how to correct it. It is almost impossible to retouch with it. I have to keep switching back to CS5 for close cropping and sometimes retouching. Frustrating!

I have the same problem. Enabling legacy compositing does not help. A workaround to find the brush is to tap the space bar to show the hand: The cursor is there,

Brush outlines are so thin on a high resoplution display they cannot be seen. Yes toggling spacebar or Opt key locates them, but actual brush size is impossible to see at times. Need an option to adjust width of the brush outline ASAP!!!
