Cursor in Photoshop

I am using CS2, everything was fine then the cursor became a hand instead of crosshairs with the marquee tool in use.  Image/crop is greyed out.

What's happening here?

Cursor has reverted to crosshairs.  After several minutes.

make sure you're not touching the space bar, that will make any tool change to the hand tool

for the crosshair make sure you haven't got caps lock pressed

maybe you need to reset the photoshop prefs

if the above isn't the reason

How to reset Photoshop preferences

First, hold down all three Ctrl+Alt+Shift buttons

Now "while keeping those button held," simply open Photoshop or a file that opens with Photoshop

As Photoshop loads, you should get a prompt asking if you would like to "delete the Photoshop settings file", Click yes

You should now have a fresh slate with all of the settings returned to their default.
