Quick Mask in Newest Photoshop: Shifting to quick mask in previous versions of Photoshop used to turn the layer's color from blue to gray, but in the latest version, the change is from one shade of grey to another, and is much harder to differentiate; I'd welcome a return to the previous, more obvious differentiation.

QuickMask, by default, shows as red -- and that has not changed.
It sounds as if you have altered the color for QuickMask in Photoshop's preferences.

Thanks, Chris. I didn't change anything other than download today's update that seems to have changed the appearance of my entire workspace. Working with a quick mask is the same as it has been (with masked areas painted in red), but it's the appearance of the active layer when it's in quick mask mode that has changed, and I'm not sure which preference I need to use to make it more noticeable as I've been used to. Thanks!

Could you post screenshots of the image both with and without QuickMask Mode?

Trying to figure out how to send you these screen shots ... when I take them using SnapZ, the controls disappear ... would appreciate guidance on how to send these to you! Thanks ....
