Thanks Brenda!

Oh wow these will definitely come in handy!

Thanks Brenda these are great!

So am I in the right place????
I feel so dumb to ask this but how do you get the little circle curser to stay on the eraser program.
It comes and goes and I can't seem to live without it now.
I tried the preference thingy and thought I had it solved but now that doesn't seem to help.
I posted this on another forum but I think it's defunked.

Also forgot to add thanks for all the links, I put them in an email and sent it to myself so when I'm waiting (doctors office) I'll have something to read.

Wow, Thanks for all the links. I love learning new things. There are so many talented people out there and so little time to learn all the neat things they share. smiley

Cathy, I'm sorry no one has answered your question. I really didn't even see that someone had a comment up there on the sticky.
Actually I don't understand the question. I have PSE 10 but my eraser stays on the Mode that I used last. The options are across the top once you click on eraser and my options are in a drop down from mode. They are Brush, Pencil and Block. Then the Brush is actually a circle and needs to be re-sized most of the time to be a circle I can see so I just click on the size and adjust it to the size I want with the slider. There may be a way that I am not aware of setting a default.

I will check the sticky more often for questions since I am not notified yet as to when there are comments. I hope that will be fixed soon for all of us. Thanks and sorry I could not be of help.

Thank you Brenda for these links. They will be very useful as I want to spend more time and learn PS.

thanks

Thanks for the links -- as my late dad used to say "Knowledge is never wasted."

Awesome!!!

Thank you will go and have a look

Thank you so much! Can't wait to explore!

Thanks for all these links, they will definitely come in handy.

I found this great video on creating custom drop shadows. Very easy!

I hope I understood you question correctly: to keep the eraser circle curser to stay on-
go to preferences>display & cursers> "other cursers" click on precise.
hope this helps!
