adjustment layer added when using brush

When using the brush tool, PS beta release 25.9 automatically adds a brightness/contrast adjustment layer.  I can't use the brush tool on the layer I want.    

 

Mac studio Sonona v 14.4.1

Sounds like you have the Adjustment Brush Tool selected instead of the Brush Tool.

several of the better Photoshop YouTube channels, are making a fuss about the Adjustment Brush, but I can't really see the point of it.  The Adjustment presets make more sense.  Are the two linked at all?

With the Adj Brush you can brush in an adjustment using, e.g., a low flow rate and slowly build it up on your target area.  I haven't tried it in PS yet but used a similar tool a lot in Capture One to, e.g add highligts to hair.  It's easier than creating a mask and then doing it.  I'm happy to see it in PS.  I don't know if the brush and presets are linked.

But that's exactly the same as using Adjustment layers.  You can use any brush setting when brushing in a layer mask.

Yes but you don't have to first create the layer & the mask, it's created for you.  I do agree it's over hyped but I personally like that Adobe is adding it.  :wine_glass::wine_glass::wine_glass::wine_glass::wine_glass:
