How Do You Reset the Eraser Tool in Photoshop CC?

Last updated on September 23, 2022 @ 11:26 pm

If you’re using Photoshop CC, you may have noticed that the eraser tool doesn’t work the same as it used to. In previous versions of Photoshop, the eraser tool would simply erase whatever pixels it was applied to.

However, in Photoshop CC, the eraser tool now acts more like a brush tool, with different brush tips and modes. This can be confusing for some users, so here’s a quick guide on how to reset the eraser tool in Photoshop CC.

First, open up your Preferences window by going to Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Photoshop CC > Preferences (Mac).

Next, go to the “Tools” section and make sure that the “Eraser Tool Mode” is set to “Normal”.

PRO TIP: The Eraser tool in Photoshop CC can be reset by going to the Preferences > Tools > Reset Tools menu. This will reset all of the Eraser tools settings back to their default values.

Now, go to your eraser tool options and make sure that the “Mode” is set to “Pencil”, the “Opacity” is set to 100%, and the “Flow” is set to 100%.

Finally, click “OK” to close the Preferences window and reset your eraser tool.

Now your eraser tool should work like it did in previous versions of Photoshop.
