Improving the Cursor in Photoshop

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop: Make the brush cursor easier to see (too thin, not enough contrast with some colors)

Couple of things. First, how about a square cursor option? The round one is fine, but those corners are a little tough to get into with the paint brush. Second, how about allowing us to choose a color for the brush icons? Especially when working in B&W, the cursor tends to disappear in the grey areas. If I could change the color to, say, red, I could find it more easily.

The shape of the brush cursor matches the shape of your brush -- you can change it to any shape you way.

The cursor "color" is actually a blending option to make it visible over the most content. But it isn't perfect, and we're seriously limited in what the OS and OpenGL can support.
