So this is really frustrating me. I have a macbook pro and when I go to adjust levels on a layer by command L and move the sliders - nothing happens. The image is exactly the same no matter how drastic the sliders move and I have no idea why. If I create a levels adjustment layer and move the sliders, it works fine. But adjusting the levels on the image directly doesn't work. I updated to photoshop 2017, I restarted my computer, I quit and reopened photoshop multiple times and nothing works. All the other tools work fine, but adjusting levels which unfortunately is my most used tool doesn't work. I don't want to restore photoshop to the factory settings because then won't I lose all my custom brushes and fonts? Has anyone else reported this problem?
Thanks in advance xx
Does t happen on just that file or other files as well?
Whats your OS?
Every file I open. But I just reset preferences and it works now. No idea what happened. Weird.
A lot of preference settings get loaded into the OS memory structure.
This cause a lot of issues sometimes.
Preference corruption is the single biggest issue here and gripe.
Adobe should allow a person the same their best working preference file to a backup and then allow one to load "last known working preference setting"
