working with photoshop cc on mac OS- using actions with brush and works for first few strokes. if i brush over a previously brushed area, it paints back the original image- completely defeating purpose! thought it was a wacom tablet issue, but problem continues when i switch to mouse. also re-booted... problem persists.
You description is not painting a picture in my mind that i can visualize and see your words keep a making my mind go into its normal confused state of unknowing Photoshop.
Please check all your brush settings in the Brush palette and in the tools option bar consider posting a screen capture of the problem your having.
