I'm using CS6 and like to use the adj brush with the scroll wheel like I can in Lightroom 4.

Hello,
The two default behaviors of the scroll wheel are to... scroll, or to zoom, and it can be set in preferences. Most applications use those, therefore, it made sense to do that in Photoshop, I guess.

To adjust the brush size, there are either the square brackets, or the right-click+alt+left&right mouse movement.

Would you rather have the thread be turned into an idea thread, so that users might vote on a possible future implementation, as a preference setting?

I'd like users to vote on this as a future option. I don't use many brushes but I use the adjustment brush a lot. I love the scroll brush size feature in Lightroom. I dislike having to go to the bracket keys.
