Selection Brush Not Working

Recommended Posts

Looks like you are working on the curves adjustment layer, select the bottom pixel layer and try the brush again

As @dutchshader implied, you need to display thr Layer panel. Click on the Layer tab (next to the Adjustments tab). You only need a single screenshot at a time. Showing several stacked sideways in one image makes it more difficult to see each one.

I was trying to show retail and beta, and in beta the curves were selected which I didn't select. Changed curves to pixels in Layers and now it works fine.

So @Magi did. I must have been looking at the earlier screenshot.

My comment about not sideways-stacking still applies though.

Hi Ian, I hope that my suggestion is too basic, nevertheless, I recall that when I first started the selection brush happened to be in the "subtract" option.  Simply switching on the toolbar above to "add" solved the problem. This happened many times before I "cottoned on".

I'm ashamed to admit that it wasn't too basic - that's exactly what I'd done wrong (this time)!!  Many thanks!!

@v_kyr PrntScrn takes a shot of all monitors attached to the system(like @Magi said in a previous post)
that's why the wide screenshot 

And what has v-kyr got to do with this? :)
