CC2019 Bug.  Thumbnail images on the Layer show black where there is empty area.  Now I cannot navigate my layers visually.   The blackness occurs after tranforming art on that layer.

Happening to me, too.  In the Select and Mask area, when I choose a color or gradient to background a picture, it is black.

This sounds a bit like this issue, which we are still investigating. 

Are you on Mac or Windows and which version are you running?

Thanks,
Hannah

If you go to Preferences > Performance... and turn of Use Graphics Processor, restart Photoshop, do the thumbnails render correctly?

@Jeffrey T
I tried these 3 good suggestions, to no avail. 
-disable Preferences > Type... Fill New Type Layers with Placeholder Text
-Preferences > Performance... and check "Legacy Compositing" ....restart PS
-Preferences > Performance... and turn of Use Graphics Processor, ....restart PS

Sadly, Layers Thumbnails still creating black in empty area after transform.

Thanks tho!

It may help if we could see your Photoshop System Info. Launch Photoshop, and select Help > System Info... and copy/paste the text in a reply.

So this implies that my error is not common...?  Not reproducable?

This worked for me!  ... If you go to Preferences > Performance... and turn of Use Graphics Processor, restart Photoshop, do the thumbnails render correctly?
Thank you!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Layer thumbnails have black background and the image therein is all distorted..
