    In photoshop CS6 when using a brush to paint, the outcome is smaller than the brush size. In other words the painted mark is smaller than the outline stroke that one can see when a brush is selected. It must be a a setting because i remember that i was able to paint exactly what the brush size was and not smaller!

    Incase i mixed you up with my explanation, here is a pic that shows what happens when i click on the brush now (left) and how it should be (right). The color i paint is white and the black circle is the brush size. What is painted should be exactly the same diameter of the brush so paints exactly what he sees and not less (as seen in the left example).
    I hope i didn't mix you guys up more!

    One possibility I know of is a system preference setting that is interfering with the program.

    If you're on a Mac, go to: System Preferences > Accessibility > Display. For cursor size, set to Normal.

    Hopefully that'll solve your problem.
