I was making some pixel art and at some point I doubled the image size so now in order to continue to make my nice squares I want the pixel tool to be an 8x8 pixel square tip. Is it possible?

On the Brush Palette click on the arrow to load Square Brushes. See image below, might look a bit different if you're on CS6, I'm not too sure:

This does look different on CS6. I wonder if anyone could explain how to do it there... – zakgottlieb May 7 '14 at 11:23
@zakgottlieb come into the chat and someone will probably be able to help you out. Or if you come into the chat and show me screenshots I might be able to tell you myself. – Ryan May 7 '14 at 12:25
on CS6 CC I see no square shape options. – BenRacicot Mar 12 '15 at 12:58
@BenRacicot did you load them? Click where it says "Load Brushes" – Ryan Mar 12 '15 at 13:22
