im painting using photoshop but whenever i use eyedropper tool to pick colors just to blend it suddenly appears darker but awhile ago it was working fine. im also painting in greyscale mode and my brush settings are using transfer (both opacity and fill is in pen pressure)

other notes:

im using windows 7

adobe photoshop CC

brush mode is on normal, layers are all on normal on changes are on brush dynamics.

i tried using it on a new file and it seems to work but on the one im working on now it looks like each brush stroke is defaulting on a multiply setting
