Due to an issue with my OS - I had to re-install Photoshop CS-5. Now when I try to crop an image, the image flickers between black & the image. Often remains blacked out till I click on the image. Never did this before. Is there a setting that needs to be changed?

    Hi there! Because the forum you originally posted in is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop, I moved your question to the Photoshop General Discussion forum, where you'll get more specialized help.

     

    To help others help you, please read through this article and provide any additional relevant details.

    What OS version?

     

    What you are describing sounds like a typical video card driver bug.

    Which GPU?

     

    And where did you get the updated driver from?  (should be the GPU maker)

     

    But Win 8 has some known bugs with video cards and drivers -- those aren't fixed yet (we're still waiting on all the parties to ship updates).  For the time being you might want to set the GPU Mode to "Basic" in Photoshop's preferences.

    Yeah, that sounds like the Win8 bugs.

     

    The AMD 13.2 beta 5 or later drivers should help.
