The only brush settings for the spot healing and healing brush tools as far as i know are the ones you can get when pressing in the area highlighted
in the screenshot below.
Strangly photoshop elements does allow for picking different brushes with the spot healing brush tool.
photoshop elements 8 spot healing brush tool:
I'm pretty sure this feature is not available in your version of Photoshop CS6, I have the same version running on windows 8 (which makes no difference for this question). I couldn't find any way of changing the brush nor did I see any situation where the healing spot would need a different brush? It's like trying to change the brush for the "Paint Bucket Tool". The way Healing Spot works and functions, It seems to me that it wouldn't matter your brush type. Size is the only thing that really would need adjusted for perfection work - quick work.
Sorry I didn't have the solution to your question, but I hope you realize what you’re asking for isn't really necessary, unless you can prove me otherwise.
The Healing Brush allows you to change the brush shape.
The Spot Healing Brush only allows round shapes.
And Elements... has some integration issues to fix.
SETH ... is being RUDE AND SARCASTIC really worth your effort??!! Most of all considering that you have NO IDEA AT ALL why i am asking!! You are the FIRST RUDE person I have come across on this forum. did you miss the part at the TOP where i list that I AM A NEW USER OF PS??!!!! (Newbie) PROVE TO YOU?? um, what?? what do i have/or need to prove to you?? i mean really, this forum isn't for learning or for asking for help? it's for people like you that think they know everything about everything to come put new users down?! geesumcrowfish!! go get yourself some manners!
if there's no use for the Healing Brush to have other shapes like a square etc. then why does Elements have the option? Hmmm??
also, i wasn't asking about the Spot Healing tool ... I haven't even got to that one yet ... again ... "NEWBIE"
sorry to everyone else who did try to help. i'm sorry for the tone of my response. i just can't stand it when people are rude especially for no good reason at all.
Sorry If I came across as rude, that really wasn’t my intention. Neither was I trying to be sarcastic. I can understand now why you thought I was being a bit "haughty" in my reply. I really am a newbie also and was just trying to figure out why you wanted to change your brush type. I haven't used the healing brush that much, so I had no idea why you needed to change it. What I meant when I said "Until you prove me otherwise" meant was “give me an example” of why you needed a different brush type. I'm so sorry you thought I was rude and sarcastic, I was earnestly just trying to give you my two cents, and you can take them or leave them it's up to you. In no way was I trying to demote you or make fun of your lack of knowledge of Photoshop, because frankly I think where on the same playing level when it comes to that. So I do hope you will accept my apology and my attempt at delivering you a helpful answer. It sounds like Chris gives you a good answer, more simple than what I was trying to explain.
Thanx Seth. It's all good.
