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!

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.
