I am new to photoshop and so FRUSTRATED. The layer buttons stay grey and will not turn blue. I can not see or work on anything. REMEMBER i am new. Do not give me 45 steps to correct this problem. Thanks

What version of Photoshop are you using? I'm not clear on what layer buttons you want to turn blue. Could you post a screen shot to better illustrate what you're trying to achieve?

Thanks for your quick response.
I am using Photoshop CC 2015.
It is the trial version. So far it is so frustrating I am not sure I can buy it.
Here is the screen capture requested.
At the far right is the screen for layers.
If I click on Bracelet with small stones, it remains gray instead of turning blue so that I can work on it . I only see the most recent layer. I can not go back and forth. Also none of the tools seems to work. For example, paint brush does nothing this could be related to the fact that the layer is not being recognized?
