Photoshop CS6 Info Palette & Adjustment Layers

Jan 15, 2013 4:06 PM

I have searched but can't find an answer to my question so I thought this may be the best place to ask.

 

When I am using adjustment layers in PS 13.0.3 (mountain lion), I notice that the info palette is not giving me a before and after readout of the adjustment.

e.g. I add a curves adjustment layer and remove some cyan from the highlight end, I can see on screen that cyan is removed but the info palette gives me 2 readings, both the same. This can make it difficult if I want to remove an exact amount of colour. I have the info palette is set up the same as every previous version of photoshop I have used, 1st reading actual colour, 2nd reading cmyk. I know this is a bit difficult to explain so I have included an image showing the palette, CS6 on the left and CS5 on the right, same image, same coordinates. CS5 is showing that 4% cyan has been removed, was 18% now 14%, CS6 is showing what it is now.

 

I work in prepress and do a lot of colour correction for books and magazines so I need to know the before & after readings. Is this a bug/feature??

    Hello, bitodd, the best way is to use the http://feedback.photoshop.com site.

    But first I'd try updating to 13.0.4 http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5448 to see if it cures the issue.

    It's a known bug when the adjustment layer is inside a group/folder.

    It is not yet fixed.

    Has anyone heard if this is being addressed? We are also experiencing this bug, and it is a real problem within our workflow.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm having this same problem as well.

    Two of our macs have this problem and two do not.

     

    The two macs with this problem are:

    Mac Pro

    2 x 2.93 Ghz 6-Core intel Xeon

    96 GB 1333 HZ DDR3 ECC

    ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB

    OSX Lion 10.7.5

     

     

    The two macs that work correctly are:

    Mac Pro

    2 x 3.06 Ghz 6-Core Intel Xeon

    96 GB 1333 HZ DDR3 ECC

    ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024 MB

    OSX Lion 10.7.5

     

    Does anyone know what might cause this problem?

    Thats what we've been doing here.

    It works, but it can be pretty innefficent work around when editing files.

     

    Strange that it is not a problem on 2 out of 4 of our work stations.

     

    Thanks

    Its odd that its only a problem on half of our computers.

    I wonder if its a video card issue?

    Just updated PS on one of our macs to 13.0.4 from 13.0 and this has sprung up.

     

    This makes things very awkward for the way we work.

     

    Adobe have had at least six weeks to address it… so any fix on the horizon?
