Left side tool bar needs better graphics

Left hand tools look too similar.  Basically after using PS since V2.4 I'm now finding that the Healing Brush and the Eraser are looking too similar and with high turnover jobs the confusion is taking fractions of a second on selecting the one brush required. 

I love the way we can move the tools up and down to help quick selection, I've moved the history brush away from the regular brush for this reason.

Keep up the great work

Why not use the shortcuts keys, Shift-b for brush and shift-j for the healing brush. A lot faster than point and click. most of the tools have shortcuts

Its the Healing brush 'J'  and Eraser 'E' that look the same.

I sometimes use keys but thats not the point, PS6 had better graphics IMO.

Pro Tip: Never use the eraser.

^Exactly.  Imagine my surprise when I go to heal and my layer disappears because I've selected the wrong tool.  

My eyes are still pretty good too :)

Now why didn't I think of that LOL

In my first post I've written how I move the history brush away, I should of deleted the eraser.

Thanks
