It used to work when I first installed Cs5 and now gradients and gradient brus just comes up with the error that All local adjustment controls are set to have no effect on the image. How do I fix this problem?
Try changing the values of the sliders in the panel to the right first. I think it's telling you they're all just set (e.g., center scale) so that you won't see any results from the tool.
