Paint brush tool in Beta 1.8.0.526

Recommended Posts

In Windows 10. When sharpen with High pass filter under New Live Filter layer>sharpen>High pass Filter, paint brush tool does not paint in black or white or any other color on mask. I can invert mask

Works fine in version 1.7.0.481

A screenshot would help, showing the Layers panel and the Context Toolbar while painting.

But I'll make a guess that perhaps you're not using the Paint Brush Tool, but perhaps something like the Paint Mixer Brush.

Thanks a lot Walt. It was the Paint Brush tool, but "Protect Alpha" was ticked. I unpicked it and the brush is working fine. Quite honestly don't know what protect alpha does.

Thanks again

Glad you figured it out.
