    Lighting effects stopped working

    jillta3

      Whenever I go to use lighting effects (filter> render> lighting effects) in my Photoshop CS6 for Mac, there is no adjustable circle anymore like below:http://blog.photoshopcreative.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Screen-shot-2012-03-22-at-14.55.16.png

       

       

      Mine only shows up like this:

       

      Untitled-1 @ 16.7% (Light Effects, RGB_8) *.jpg

       

      How can I get it to like it was before?

          Have you upgraded to 13.0.1? Help > Updates to check and download all available updates.

           

          Beyond that, can you post your system report? Help > System Info. Copy & Paste that data here.

              2 Suggestions I can think of:

               

              1. Reset Photoshop Prefs first: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/375776

               

              See if that helps. Else proceed to step 2:

               

              2. Photoshop (From Title Bar) > Preferences > Performance > Graphics Processor Settings > Advanced Settings > Drawing Mode > Change to Basic.

               

              See if that helps.

               

              Post back with your progress.

                Resetting the photoshop prefs/deleting the preferences settings file worked!

                 

                Thank you for your help!
