I'd like to keep my current brush size when switching between Photoshop brush presets. Is there a way to do this?


No. Presets are specific sizes.

You can change the Brush Tip Shape or other options and the size will be retained.

    Wait, I figured it out. In CS6, when adding a brush preset, there's a checkbox for 'Capture brush size in preset'. Uncheck this, and you can switch to a brush preset, that has no brush size, and thus keep current brush size. – RedKrovvy Feb 20 '15 at 21:18

    Yes if you create the preset yourself. Most stock preset have the size associated with them. – Scott Feb 20 '15 at 21:21

You cannot keep the current brush size when switching to a brush preset that has a set size.

If the brush preset, that is switched to, has no size, then the current brush size will be retained.
