I am trying to convert the Eraser to laying down White Pixels

Greetings:

 

When first using the Eraser it laid down white pixels.

Now it is laying down Black pixels instead?

I must have adjusted something to cause this ?

Please provide any help you can/

    You've probably got background colour set to black instead of the default white. Press D key for default background and foreground colours, and X key to exchange background and foreground.

    I believe the only time the erase tool lays down pixels in when your erasing on the Photoshop Background layer for Photoshop's background layer does not support transparency. On normal layers the eraser tool deletes pixels or lowers the transparency of pixels. When erasing on the background the color that shows should be the canvas color or the color of the background swatch I think. So it can lay down any color you want on the background does not need to be 100 opacity however the resulting pixel will be 100% opaque.

    Yes the D key resets the foreground and background color swatches to Black and White and the X key switches the swatches.  They can be set to any color and X will switch between them. Here they are Red and GreenRG.jpg
