    I have looked online and in my PSE10 book and can't seem to find an answer. Does anyone know if, and how, you can change the appearance of a brush [spot removing tool, clone tool, burn tool etc] so its easier to see on screen. I can't always see the tiny outline circle of the brush anymore and am trying to make life easier. Any thoughts? I have seen in online videos brushes being used that are colored outlines, or wider outlines, just can't figure out how to do it with mine.

    In CC it's Preferences>cursors. Not sure on your version but suspect it would be same

    Thank you, I'll check it out. I don;t recall seeing preferences, but it is there somewhere I'm sure.

    Found preferences, chose display and cursors and I have a setting for crop tool and brushes however no way to change the outline of the brush, so no help to my problem.. That stinks. Oh well. I have seen tons of video tutorials for PSE10 and others where the person has a bright yellow circle for the brush...

    No that's not the problem. I can't see the thin black circle which is the brush. I'm trying to make it bolder or a different color so I can see it better. As is that thin little line of a circle for the tools just gets lost to me because of my sight issue. It's there, I just can't always see and follow where it is. The little cross hair things, I can't see them either A bolder line or bright color would help, but it doesn't seem it's possible to do in elements.

    I wish I had some experience in Elements that I could help, I'm shooting blind here. Under preferences > cursor does this window open? Can you click on the color blocks or brush preview to change color. What happens if you tick full brush tip?

    No my window doesn't look like that. In mine. you can change brush from normal to full or standard or precise and all it does is change from a circle to a cross hair or a paint brush or eyedropper. The next box I have is for the crop tool and it gives the option to have a shield or no shield and you can change it's color and opacity - the shield, not the tool itself.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I figured when I couldn't find an answer in the pse10 book that it probably couldn't be done, but thought it was worth asking the question anyway. I thought maybe I had just overlooked the answer in the book. Thanks again

    Try Full brush - in the other PS, it will change the preview size to the brush size.
