    • Eugenia , I was also going crazy over this problem and finally i FOUND THE SOLUTION. you might have accidentally clicked on the QUICK MASK button that is situated in the toolbox just below the foreground and the background colour boxes. Un-select that and everything will be fine.


  1. Thank you! Having been using Photoshop for more than 20 years I felt really daft not being able to fix this. Not really obvious is it? Congratulations on tracking it down.


  2. Amen for this! … I searched for hours, and I’m a pretty experienced photoshopper, this never happened to me before in the last 15 years πŸ˜€ I’m incredibly thankful ! πŸ™‚
