Photoshop: Ability to disable cross-hair with very small brush cursor

the crosshairs on the small brush sizes block your view of your work while painting
why not give users the option of removing them in preferences?

What cursor settings are you currently using? 



Some screen shots of what you're seeing while painting, and what you'd like to see may also help.

the normal round circle, but at the smallest sizes a crosshair appears

I'd like to request that Adobe give users the option of removing the crosshairs entirely from ALL brush sizes, not just the large ones,  but I don't know how to go about doing that. I phoned tech support and the fool that took my call wanted to remote into my computer...for what purpose I don't know. If you are familiar with Photoshop you know that there is no way to remove the crosshairs from small brush sizes, so I don't know what he was hoping to accomplish. I ended the call in frustration.

Thank you.. Yes, the crosshairs are blinding, when painting with a small brush, you are likely detailing... and the crosshairs don't let you have a clear view of your work, or the exact cursor location. Making detailing frustrating due to not seeing the location of the intended brush stroke clearly.

Even if the cursor were to become a single pixel, that's the goal for having a perfect view.. People who will detail that small, will have clear vision to see the pixel-size cursor, and will not need the cross-hair.
