Hello everyone, I'm currently using photoshop CS6 and am trying to make a nice logo for my website. I used photoshop through high school so I know little basic things about the program. Anyways, I'm creating a logo from a tut on youtube, it says to hit "ctrl i" which makes the background black. After that I select a darkish grey as my foreground color, then I hit the gradient tool and set it to "radial gradient." Now I drag the mouse across the document and let go but nothing happens. I then tried it with a white background and it worked fine, but I want the background to be black. I made sure that it was on normal, the opacity is 100% and everything seems correct to what the tutorial was showing me. He uses a different photoshop than me so I don't know if that's what causes it.
^Thats the youtube video, after I select my grey foreground color and click the gradient tool then thats where it goes ground. After striking through the image like he does nothing appears, but when I change the background color to white than it works fine.
All of them look completely fine. I double checked everything. When I first opened photoshop it gave me this message, "Photoshop has encountered a problem with the display driver and has temporarily disabled GPU enhancements. Check the video adapter manufacturer's website for the latest software. GPU enhancements can be enabled in the Performance panel of Preferences." Could that have anything to do with it?
That isn't likely to have anything to do with it - because the bugs in your display driver have already caused Photoshop to disable all the GPU functions.
But you really should update your video card driver from the GPU maker's website to fix those bugs in the driver.
Odds are that you're still missing a setting. Try resetting the tool (to clear all the settings).
