Hello, I only had Adobe Photoshop for about 2 months now. I have been using the Low Key tool in guided alot. Here recently I went to edit a photo and my reduce effect button tool will not work. I tried everything from restarting my computer and the program. I love using this tool but I can not get the reduce effect to work. Need HELP Thank You
Do you mean Edit > Fade? If yes, that only works if used right after applying the effect, and will be greyed out as soon as you do anything else to the image.
Try creating your low key effect on a copy of the BG layer, and reducing layer opacity to reduce the effect.
Sounds like your talking about Low Key in photoshop elements under Guided.
What version of photoshop elements and operating system are you using?
What happens when you press the Reduce Effect Button?
Do you see the Size and Opacity sliders?
Yes I have photoshop elements 12. When I press the Reduce effects button the size and opacity sliders appear. I can move them and change sizes but when I go over my photo and try to reduce the effect nothing appears. I have the opacity slider all the way up. It worked for me before and I dont think im doing anything different.
