Ok, I have adjusted the footprint for my healing brush.
The angle has been set to 32 and the roundness set to 80.

When I use the healing brush, the brush appears to spin while making a stroke. This isn’t noticable with a round brush. Is this normal behaviour or is there a way to disable this?

The machine is a DP/2G G5 with 2 Gb of RAM.
Using Photoshop CS with all the latest updates (Apple & Adobe). The system is new with minimal software installed.

Thanks

What % RAM allocated to PS? Try 65%.

Check the brush palette for settings – it’s probably set to rotate following the pressure or angle of the stroke.

Thanks guys

My RAM set to 60%.

Chris, I have checked all the settings (healing brush has only a few options) and cannot find anything relating to rotate following pressure. I will keep looking though.

FWIW this also happens on my G4 400 at home.

Me again…

I’m stumped on this.
The spinning healing brush has now been noticed on 2 Macs and One PC. The PC had a fresh install of CS and the only settings changed were the healing brush?!

We do have another workstation (PC) that isn’t showing this issue. I have scoured every dialog and setting I can find and I’m baffled.

If anyone has any suggestions at all, I’m all ears…

Are tablets involved? Are all the images 16-bit?

Hi Ramón

No tablets and images are 8-bit.
I’m sure Murphy has it in for me lately 😉

You have to be using a brush preset that is set to rotate with stroke angle or pressure.

Use a different preset.

Thanks Chris

Figured it out. Here’s what’s happening.
If I reset the tool presets (all tools) and select the default healing brush preset, then change the roundness setting, the tool works correctly.

Here’s how to get yourself a Spinning Healing Brush – Hey, works for me! Control click (right-click) the healing tool fly-out menu at the left of the Options Bar and select Reset Tool. Now set your healing brush’s roundness setting to something lower than 100%
