When using my brushes on a blank page or even a photo, they will not show up. Its hows up under the new layer on whatever the preset is set on. I never had this problem before, am I doing something wrong? When I got to use my brush a new layer is made and you can see it on the layer thumbnail but not on my actual image. Help please. It may be a setting but I need help.

Which OS version?

If MacOS: which machine (some of the MacBookPros still have video driver bugs).

What video card/GPU?

Are you running 10.7.3?

You might want to turn off the automatic graphics switching in the OS.

Automatic graphics switching is an OS preference.

I am trying to but I can't find it under energy saver. Should that fix the problem?
