Create a 500 x 500 px document. Set your round brush to 500 px. Your cursor preview should be as large as your document, but is larger.
I tried both fill and normal size brush, and does not work properly since upgrading to CC2018 on mac OS 10.12.4.
I have all my brush setting unchecked. Was trying to create the red doughnut brush I use on my screenshots.
Also when I hit delete keep getting the annoying menu.Would prefer to not see this each and every time, is there a way to stop this pop up window?
Atelast option delete still fills with foreground color with no pop up window. The options are great, but wold think this should have been in preferences.
Not noticing any oversized cursors on my Mid 2012 MBP, but see if a Tool reset will fix it. Select the brush, right-click on the icon in the top option bar:
Here's the reason Delete brings up Fill.
If I have feathering, it's larger than the doc, but when the hardness is up all the way, it's the size of the doc.
This is a very annoying problem. Especially with the clone stamp tool. Just upgraded to the cc 2018.
Have been using Photoshop for 15 years and always could preview the effect before applying the brush. Now the preview is so large that the clone stamp tool is almost useless. I don't usually clone stamp with a hard brush. I need to see where the brush is actually going to apply the clone when working near an edge.
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.
Whilst talking about the brush tool, does anyone know how to get that red preview when quickly changing brush size/hardness on graphic tablets? Been doing a lot of research on it and tried multiple times to no avail
You cannot turn off the overlay (displayed with round computed brushes) but you can change the color in Preferences/Cursors Brush Preview color swatch.
I don't want to turn it off, but when I change the size/hardness it only shows the black ring, I can't seem to get the red preview to show..
The preview overlay is only shown on the round brushes. Other brush types (Sampled and Live Tip) only show the outline.
I know this was asked eons ago, but I found that if I set my cursor size larger than normal/default in my MacOS settings, that it effects the paintbrush circle size in Photoshop. Had to set that back to the normal size unfortunately.
Hope this helps someone some day!
Hallelujah!! This has been driving me craaazy for months!! I fixed by your suggestion System Preferences > Accessibility > Display > Cursor, then slid back down to normal size. THANK YOU.
