I recently updated to the new Lightroom Classic. I cannot seem to get my brush tool to work in lightroom develop module.  Everytime I click to use it the cursor just sticks to the first place you place it. It will not let you make an adjustment. I have reset the brush tool. I have also optimized my catalog. I have also reset all settings. What am I missing? I did not have this issue prior to updating Lightroom.

The first thing that you should try is to switch off the GPU support from the Lightroom preferences and check if that helps to fix the issue.

Go to Lightroom > Preferences > Performance tab > Uncheck "Use Graphics Processor" > Restart Lightroom.

If Lightroom doesn't start correctly the please see "Solution 2" in the document behind the second link.

 

Another step is to try to reset the Lightroom preferences.

If this doesn't help we need more informations about your environment.

  • Which operating system do you use?
  • Which version of Lightroom do you use?

Please post the exact version and not only phrases as "recent", "latest" and so on.

 

Do you get an error message? If yes, please post the exact message or an screenshot.
