Brushes in PS CC

I really don't like the Brushes interface in Photoshop CC. In my opinion, Not an improvement over CS6. Is there any way to select the old legacy version of Brushes in PS CC?

Could you be a little more specific?
Which version of Photoshop CC? (2018?, prior?)
Thx.

I guess I'm in the latest version. How do you know? It says 19.0.

Why did they have to break the brushes up in groups and only show one group of a half dozen at a time most of which you have no interest in?

Rich,

Actually the current release is 19.1.2. You should update your working copy.

Rich,
Is this what you are looking for?

Go to the Brushes Panel >
Flyout menu >
Choose "Legacy Brushes

Actually, I was referring to the brush "interface" in CS6 where all of your brushes can be appended to one list and all opened as square icons at the same time. The legacy list of brushes in CC is fine but they display in that same format that is not as convenient, not an advancement, a setback. Is there any way to have them all together in one list as small square icons, like in CS6, I forgot what that view is called.

I had to close CC and open CS6 to see what the view is called. OK. I like "Large Thumbnails". And as I said, I would prefer all my brushes in one interface like CS6. Is that possible in CC?

I do need an upgrade to a newer version of CC but how come regular Adobe updates didn't cover it?

Although I made the change to CC, they'll have to pry PS CS6 from my cold dead fingers if they want to take that away.

You can view all the Brushes as
"little square icons" two ways.

First to see all of the old brushes appended,
do as I wrote above.

Then,
1. Go to the Brushes Settings panel >
The Tip Preview section displays brushes
as it has always done, as icons.

2. Go to the Brushes panel or Options Bar >
From the flyout menu >
Deselect "Brush Name" and "Brush Stroke" >
Leave "Brush Tip" selected
Expand open all of the folders to see just the icons.


I also once thought that CS6 was worth holding on to,
but as of right now, everything, and more, that I loved about
CS6 is in the present version of Photoshop CC 2018.
Adobe found a way to put back in all the good stuff of CS6,
they'd removed from it when this CC thing first began.

OK, Chita, that worked and it's better. Thanks for showing me the secret handshake to do it.
