I tried using the burn and dodge tool and when I adjusted the brush size it didn't change on screen. When I placed the cursor over the area that I wanted to dodge it adjusted but I couldn't tell how much of the photo that the brush was covering.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Please try out following steps: While launching Editor, keep Ctrl + Alt + Shift (win) / Cmd + Option + Shift (MAC) keys pressed You will get a dialog asking to Delete Photoshop Elements Settings file, say yes.
Thanks for the help. I didn't get a chance to try your method. I shut down my computer and when I restarted it the dodge and burn tools worked. I have a habit of putting my computer to sleep and waking it up to edit and then put it to sleep until I have time to finish. I guess the memory became corrupted.
