Where’s the outline of my brush gone in Photoshop?


QUICK ANSWER: caps lock is probably on.

SLOW ANSWER: Photoshop gives you the option of seeing the outline of the brush, or the centrepoint of the brush. Both have their merits, depending on whether you need to know where the brush will reach to, or the line/point around which the brush will take effect.

Use caps lock to switch between outline/centrepoint view.
