    If you open your brushes pallette (Window menu-Brushes) there's a diagram showing the current shape with 'handles that you can pull and push to alter the shape.
    Or you can load pre-defined brushes by clicking on the small triangle at the top of the pallette.

    Press ctrl print+screen, then new document it photoshop, choose 'Clipboard' for size, press ctrl+v, save for web.
    In the forum don't use 'quick reply' use the 'post reply' button and then go down to manage attachments and upload your screenshot.

    you need to select your brush tool before bringing up the brush palette... then click on 'brush tip shape' (as highlighted in sorbiegunners above image) .
