Photoshop CS tools blocked
on Apr 8, 2005 at 8:57:21 am

Hi all,
For some reason I can't use simple tools, like Brush, Eraser and Smudge on an apparently simple image. Even when I start with a plain white new document, PS just won't let me add pixels or otherwise tweak the image. The color mode or bit depth don't make any difference.

Strange thing is, that it IS possible to just Cut, Paste and Move areas of the picture. Hopefully it's just a matter of adding a 'tick' somewhere...

Many thanks in advance.

Joris.

You may have a lock on your layer. Check in the layers palette, there's 4 locks located near the blending modes, make sure none of them are pressed down.

Thanks for your reply, Jason, but nope: none of the locks are pressed. PS simply won't let me brush or smudge. I'm starting to wonder if it will be easier when I just re-install the whole package.

Hmmm, tried deleting the preference file? Hold command-alt-shift on start up and select yes. You've tried some other images too?

Thanks again, but no changes. I removed the preference file and got a sort of 'clean' opening to PS, but still brushes didn't brush and smudges didn't smudge. There was no difference in using either an existing image or starting with a blank document. I've never heard of this kind of blocking before, so I figure something went wrong when I installed my package. Strange thing is that ImageReady works perfectly.

Take a look at "Brushes-Control"-Penpressure?!
Could be that simple, just change that one.

Yes! Got it, thanks mate! Indeed, it was just a matter of un-ticking the Shape Dynamics/Other Dynamics boxes in the brush prefs. How simple can it be...
