Yes Brad Sims, hit the Caps Lock key on the keyboard. This switches between Precise and Brush Size cursors. Another way to do this is go into Edit>Preferences>Display and Cursors and set the radio button you want there.

CS2 Tip: In CS2 you can do a mixture of the precise and brush size, where it shows the outline of the brush with a crosshair in the center... its really handy to do so, especially when cloning and you want to align stuff.

I read about the cloning tool on PS 7 that was not working. Mine is working, but the defining outline that forms the boundary for the area being sampled has been replaced by a crosshair cursor. Any way to get my outline back? It is harder to tell what is being sampled without the visual cue.
