    Lighting effects is missing the circles to adjust?

    ChronicDK

      Hey, everybody

       

      I am currently working on a project, where I need to use the Lighting Effects option. However, when I enter the Lighting Effects rendering, I am not provided with the circles, which allows me to change the lighting to my likeness (see screenshot). Where has my circles gone?

      Thank you for your help.

       

      Best regards,

      Jesper

          I suspect it may have to do with your OS and Displays Device Driver.  If you use Photoshop menu Help>System Info... and use its copy key and then past the info here it may help resolve you problem.

              I don't use a Mac so I know little about Mac OS versions and which drivers you should have installed for the  ATI  6750M chip-set in your laptop.  The first thing you should do is update your CS6.  The current Mac version of CS6 is version 13.0.6 yours is at version 13.0 your missing all the CS6 updates.  CS6 is the buggiest version of Photoshop ever released by adobe. Without the CS6 updated CS6 is unstable and has many problems.  Adobe Blog stated that first CS6 update which was released 5 months after CS6 was corrected 506 core issues in CS6

                  Hi JJMack, I am having the same problem as the person who originally asked the question. I am on version 13.0.6 and I do not have the circles to adjust the light.  Do you happen to know what I can do to solve this issue?  Thanks!

                      It looks like I may have two video cards?  I have also gone into PS and tried different settings in preferences.
