Sometimes you’ll find that your brush tool cursor in Photoshop or Elements has turned into a crosshair.  You’ll be changing your brush size like a maniac, and wondering why nothing is happening!  Then you’ll click with the brush tool, and paint an enormous blob of paint, because your brush is so huge.  So why is it a crosshair????

It’s because you’ve got your caps lock on.  Turn it off, and your circle will be back.  Laugh at yourself, because of your fat fingers 😀

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a fun rule on my Ask Damien page – if you ever post a question to which the answer is “Because your Caps Lock is on”, you need to donate $5 to a charity of your choice.

Be a good sport.  Let some good come of your clumsiness 🙂
