Cant see mask when resizing in CS 6

Feb 21, 2013 5:45 PM

I am trying to resize a mask in Photshop CS6 and everytime I try to scale it the mask disappears and I cant see what Im doing. Is there a setting that I need to change so that I can see it? Please see screenshots of what is happening when I try & resize.

 

I have the mask visible in the first screenshot. And the 2nd screenshot shows how it disappears when I try to resize.

    Can you post a screenshot of the image and layers panel?

    What blending options do you have set for the mask layer?

    (Blending Options Custom)

    You must have some other blending option different from the default besides the layer blend mode or there wouldn't be that symbol in the layers panel next to the mask layer.

     

    Default settings in the Blending Options:Custom.

    Do you have settings different than below?

    Another thing might be a graphics card driver issue.

     

    If you go to Photoshop>Preferences>Performance, uncheck Use Graphics Processor and then restart photoshop, does that make a difference?

    That's really just a diagnostic step to see if it seems to be a graphics card and/or graphics card driver problem causing the issue.

     

    On macs a lot of times the graphics driver updates are through apple.

     

    What os x version are you running and do you know the make and model of your graphics card?
