OK, ive had Photoshop CC for almost 3 years now. I found brushes I liked and don't like, like for textures. But, with this new 2018 update, its seems some of the brushes are no longer there. How do I get them back? All I see now is Kyle's brushes, when I really am not used to them. My brush that I love IS still there, I can use it for my eraser, which it wasn't like that before. I started on a piece with my brush, was almost done, and started adding in special effects. I switched to the eraser and switch back to the brush, but the brush type was different! I know what the brush looks like, so I keep pressing it to set my brush as it, but it keeps switching back to my eraser like its stuck on it! I don't know why this is happening, but I really just want my brush back.Thank You.
cc2018 is able to save Tool settings with brush presets. If you right click to bring up the presets panel, then click on the Cog icon and enable Show Additional Preset Info
You can see if a particular tool is associated with a particular preset.
If you really want to use that preset with another tool, select the preset, and then on Create a new preset from this brush
And make sure Include Tool Settings is unchecked. You will then be able to use that preset with any tool.
Or you could choose another preset designed for the tool you are using.
