I was using the patch tool did a few patches then tried to go back to paint brush. My brush stayed as a little plus sign no matter how I re-sized it. I even switched to eraser block that came up just fine but when I went back to brush still all I had was a little plus sign.

So I shut photoshop CS6 running on an MacBook Pro Snow Lepord and re-booted my mac and the problem went away.

But I thought you might like to know this could be an issue so you can look into it fix it some time

Perhaps you had the caps lock on?

Or you had a very tiny brush, so we show a crosshair cursor so you can see the brush size.

Or you turned on the preference to show a crosshair in the center of the brush cursor.

And it's also possible that you had a HUGE brush (bigger than your display) and since we couldn't show the brush outline, we showed a crosshair in the center of the brush.

But my guess is that you had CAPS LOCK on.
