in the Develop module my adjustment brush is not working, all the other sliders work, what is wrong?

I have got the problem fixed.

I moved the extender beside the adjustment brush tool, which set it back to Basic.

Everything is now working.

Thank you all for your help.

Otherwise describe your problem in more detail

Density is set at 77 and Flow is at 100.

When I am in the Develop Module and working with the adjustment Brush the sliders don't have any effect when I try to use them.

The Crop Overlay Spot Removal, Red Eye Correction the Radiul Filter and the Graduated Filter all work find with adjusting. The Adjustment Brush is the only one that doesn't make any adjustments when I try using them.

So, for example, if you were to set the Exposure on the Adjustment Brush to something ridiculous like -4, so any brushing would be obvious, you get no change to the image at all?

That is correct, and that goes for all the sliders you use with the adjustment brush.

A couple of things:

--What happens when you turn on the adjustment brush overlay? (in the tools menu) Do you see the overlay in your chosen colour when you paint?

Perhaps you could post a screenshot of the bottom part of the brush panel:

Use the web interface for the forum and use the little tool that looks like a camera.

This screen capture shows you are making extremely small changes to your image by brushing. Even if you set flow and density to 100, I am not sure you could see the difference in "Highlight" at 1 and "Saturation" at 4 and "Temp" at -2. With flow at 40 and density at 77, I am not surprised you think nothing is happening.

When I asked earlier if you tried brushing with an exposure of -4, did you actually try that? Or did you just assume that because you see nothing with these settings, that there would be no reason to try exposure of -4? (And if you're going to try Exposure -4, set the flow and density to 100)

As I move the sliders it's making no difference to the image. I just took a picture to show my settings. Moving the sliders are showing no difference on any of the sliders with the adjustment brush.

Exposure contrast etc.

Are you moving the sliders with the "pin" for your brushed area selected? When the "pin" is selected, it looks like a black circle surrounded by a very light gray circle and then a very thin black circle, like this:

2014-03-30 14_27_23-Lightroom.png

What numbers do you move the sliders to?

Did you accidentally turn off the brush adjustments? The little doohickey highlighted in the red box, shown here, should be in the top position

2014-03-30 14_25_19-Lightroom.png

Lastly, I am asking you to perform a very specific experiment, and report the results, and it does not appear that you have done so, or at least, you have not stated clearly that you have done so.

Please, click on "New" in the brush tool, then set Exposure to -4 and Flow to 100 and Density to 100, and brush. Report what happens.

The pin is working like you asked what my problem is if I have a picture that is to bright and want to adjust the exposure etc. it won't change any of that. The only way I can change the exposure is thru the Histogram

Which version of Lr and what OS are you using.  You do not have any color in your sliders in your screen shot. 

As asked earlier, have you turned the brush OVERLAY on and are you getting the overlay to display.  I assume you are using Brush A or B and not the Erase.

Whatever the brush B is that's what it is set on

I'm using lightroom5 with the updated version.

To adjust a simple exposure on a picture it will not change the exposure by using the slider.

I am new at this so don't understand what most of the stuff does. Just the basic stuff.

You STILL haven't said if you can see the adjustment brush OVERLAY by hitting O key while you are using the brush.

Also, what is the EXACT Lightroom version and OS version you are using..

This is off topic from the problem but I wonder why you don't have any colors in your sliders considering you are using Lr5.3.  Your screen shot should look like DJ_Paige's screen shot.

Is the Overlay showing as RED?

Screenshot 2014-03-30 15.56.39.pngI realize the sliders are not adjusted differently. I want to simply do a adjustment with exposure without having to use a brush.

my problem is that is does not act like a brush, but just a "spot" adjustment brush.  It used to work.  I tried deleting the preference file for LR5, and restarting MAC OS Yosemite.

Any ideas?

Thanks, but the flow is set to 100. When I use he spot healing brush, I can

drag that as a brush, and it works fine. I have used the adjustment brush

before, and it worked fine.

I don¹t know if there was some maintenance that is causing the issue.

Found that this error is a short coming in Apple remote desktop. Difference

between SPOT and adjustment brush is supported.

Thanks to all.

Mine doesn't work, either.  I want to make the sky bluer (can't use the graduated filter because of the way the mountains are shaped).  I get nothing from the brush, even with density, etc turned all the way up.  I have no "extender" next to my brush, so not sure what you are referring to.

I'm using Lightroom 6.14.
