photoshop question

NanoTech56

so in photoshop when you erase it erases some pixels out of the circle example you can see the white is where my erases radius was and the darker gray is where it erased out side of the radius 

 

how do i make it only erase what is in the radius and not lighten the 1 pixel outside of the radius

That's called feathering or anti-aliasing.

There should be a check box for Anti-Aliased and a "Feathering" pixel option to change. Uncheck the box and change the Feathering option to 0 pixels.

Right click to see more options (such as selecting different brushes with the eraser tool).

Set Hardness to 100 (this is a percentage of feathering/anti-aliasing that is to be done). 100 means none basically, or max "hardness" and will get you the crisp edge.

 

Sorry, earlier post was from an older version of photoshop.

Shift + Right Bracket key. Works for all types of "brushes", eraser included

Try holding ALT+RMOUSE button. Then you can move your mouse up for bigger and smaller and left to right for thicker and lighter. This works in Photoshop CC but I don't know about Photoshop CS6.

In my Photoshop workflow, I don't use the Eraser Tool directly. Instead I use Masking and then convert that to a selection, or use a Selection Tool directly. The benefit of this is that I can use Refine Edge to... well... refine the edges, such as to Shift Edges, tweak the selection Contrast, apply Feathering and so on.
