    All of a sudden I can't see brush shapes, rather the eyedropper is always visible.First click changes the color as the eyedropper would and then I can paint, the tool shape is visible but letting go of the mouse reverts to the eyedropper. Very weird and very hard to work with. I've tried quitting and restarting but no luck.

    Oh- Found the answer.

    Seems like a lot of people have been having similar issues. Tried the old standby- re-starting the computer. That did it for now.

    When worse comes to worse, delete your preference files lol. Always is the solution.

    username > library > preferences > photoshop cs5
