I have the latest PS CC installed and ACR 126.96.36.199. Just yesterday the local ACR paintbrush control for exposure stopped working properly. It is acting in a muted fashion in that when I push the exposure control to extremes, like +4 or -4, and paint an area the control just barely changes the images exposure. Earlier in the day it worked fine. Any ideas on what I can do to get it working properly again. I use that control a lot!
Check the Density and Flow sliders at the bottom of the Adjustment Brush panel.
Yes, you are correct! The flow slider had been pushed down to 1. I pushed it back up to like 50 and it works perfectly! Whew...many thanks.
Flow is how long “paint” comes out of one brush stroke, with 100 being forever. In other words something less than 100 will fade the effect as you make the brush stoke take more time. I usually have mine set to 100 unless I’m actually painting tiny little strokes that I want to fade.
