  • Updated 5 years ago
I just installed PS elements 7 and then installed the patch ( Not the most encouraging way to start a new program. ) Once installed I tried to use the brush tool but cannot get any color , all I get is grey. I clicked on the fore ground box and the color box comes up but when I click the color and then click ok it does not change the color and all the brush tool does is give me grey. Please tell me how to fix this problem with this just opened version. yeswings@gmail.com

First, check your document and make sure it is in RGB mode and not Grayscale or Bitmap.
Then, if the document is RGB, make sure you are targeting the RGB channels and not a grayscale layer mask.
