When using the patch tool in PS CC the screen seems to jump and go in and out. Any ideas on what this could be? It makes me dizzy when I use the patch tool like I working in a room with a strobe light!

Which OS version?

Have you installed the 14.1.1 update?

Have you updated your video card drivers from the GPU maker's website?

Windows 8 64 bit

Everything is up to date.

Also, now the color keeps shifting when I use the brush tool I'm so frustrated!

Windows 8 has some known bugs in it's OpenGL implementation.

Updating the video card driver from the GPU maker's website should help.
Or you can set the Photoshop GPU mode to "Basic".
Worst case, turn off the GPU features in Photoshop until Microsoft delivers a fix.

Best to update the video driver.
But if you have to change the GPU prefs: Preferences / Performance / GPU

None of the above worked. :(
