I've restarted photoshop and my computer, but I'm still running into this problem. When I try to use the adjustment brush, even when all settings are on zero, it dramatically darkens the area that I want to work with. Does anyone have any idea how to "reset" the settings for the adjustment brush in camera raw? I have version 9.1.1, and I have not installed any updates recently. The darkening is still there but less when I turn the flow down to one. This problem came up about a week ago when I was processing some photos and hasn't gone away since.
Edit: it is also happening with the graduated filter
Use Photoshop menu Edit>Preferences>Camera RAW. If the Performance checkbox Use GPU is check uncheck it. Then try the filter again. Witht CC 2017 I have had problems using ACR adjustment brush even have seem crashes. ACR has also unchecked it on its own. Other version of PS with ACR Preference use GPU checked seem to work OK.
There is no preferences under edit for me. If I go to photoshop-> preferences->camera raw it pulls up a menu, but attached is what it looks like. There is no GPU or ACR box to check. I'm running photoshop CS6 version 13.0.6.
Sorry I missed the fact that you are using ACR 9.1.1

I would uninstall your current Camera Raw Plugin then restart your Mac.
You can delete it from : Library (computer library) > Application Support > Adobe > Plug-ins > CS6 > File Formats > Camera Raw.plugin
Then reinstall it - you can download a new version of the same release (9.1.1) from Camera Raw installer for Adobe Photoshop CC and CS6
That would be the first step.
If that doesn't work we can look further.
Let me know !
Thanks! I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the plug-in, but I'm still having the same issue with the adjustment brush. Have any other suggestions?
Command + Option + R on Mac (Control + Alt + R on Win) will reset the sliders for the Local Adjustment Tools in Adobe Camera Raw.
You can reset the camera raw preferences by holding down the Shift-Command-Option keys, clicking File>Open Recent
and clicking on one of your raw files on the list and you should get a dialog as below.
Then click Yes
Thank you R_Kelly, that worked!!
9.10 is the current version of Camera Raw. Why are you running such an old version?
He is still using PS CS6.
It can only use up to V 9.1.1.

Have you reset PS preferences (Opt+Cmd+Shift and restart PS) ?
