    I need help with making a simple  50 % gray box on an existing picture!


      Help,  even though I have done this in the past, for some reason when I create a rectangular marquee box and go inside the box,

      and do a right click and click on fill later and try to simply make the box 50 percent gray nothing happens.  Also, when I get to this point,

      even though I see the option  that says   "preserve transparency" when I click the little square to put a checkmark on the box, NOTHING

      happens.  What am I doing wrong here?

      As I mentioned above, I have done this SUCESSFULLY many times in the past, but, for some reason, not this time.

      I am using Photoshop Elements version10 on a 7 month old HP Envy running Windows 8.1
