Elements 11 - Brush tool not working when using layer mask

Nov 1, 2012 2:13 PM

Tags: #brush #layer_mask #photoshop_elements_11

My brush tool won't work when using layer mask in PS Elements 11. I also have Elements version 10 installed and there it works fine. If I do the exact same proces in version 11 nothing happens.

Is this a bug or has something changed in the proces?

 

Please help.

 

Thanks.

    It should work exactly the same way. Check to be sure your mode and opacity settings are the same for both, and that you've got the regular brush tool (it's easier to get switched and not realize it in PSE 11 because of the way the tool options hide).

    Make sure you have the mask thumbnail selected - it will be highlighted in blue.

    Is your foreground color set to black?

     

    Mode should be normal and opacity 100% to start with.
