All of the features in the tabs are grayed out and I cannot use them. I am trying to add layers to the picture but I am unable to even use the feature. Please help because my boss needs this done asap.

I opened up the photoshop program and tried to use the add a layer button in the bottom right, but it just gave me a circle with a line through it and didn't let me use it. Then I tried to use the layers tab in the top left but everything in the tab was grayed out. I also noticed that most of the features in the other tabs were also grayed out. Please help.

Have you installed all the Photoshop CS6 updates?
What OS version are you using?

Are you in quick mask mode or some other modal state that you forgot about?
