While I have had CC for some time, I like using 5.1 ..but today I loaded all my brushes into CC and I find that the display of the brushes for selection are just too small for me to pick from. I run 3 MacPro's doing modeling, I'm 70 and my eyes are not what they use to be. So I have been searching the net for a prep setting to simply enlarge all the brush icons to something larger like we use to see in 5.1

Thanks for helping.

Yes, this is a bit hidden in the latest version!

Each panel in Adobe Photoshop has a wing menu where you can access additional options. If yo go in here and choose Preset Manager. Then when the Preset manager opens, click on the little Gear icon and chose to make the Thumbnails lager. See my screenshots for help with this,

Thanks thangietaylor, but this WOULD be what I wanted if the icons stayed large in the brush settings panel (not just while in Presets). davescm, I thought what Don was asking was for the thumbnails to appear larger (not how to make the brush larger). Its not just about being too old to see the small icons, I'm in my 30's and when you're searching through your brushes, especially some certain detailed textures, it would be A LOT easier if you could just up the size of the thumbnails. C'mon Adobe, let's make this happen.

After searching a little more I finally found someone who knew the answer.

Go to your Brushes palette, in the drop down menu, unselect Brush Name & Brush Stroke (or whatever you want) and leave Brush Tip selected. Then you can use the slider to enlarge the thumbnails of the brush tips!

Hi

At the bottom of the brush panel you will see a slider - move it left or right to decrease/increase the size.
