Beginner tutorials

I've just started learning how to use Photoshop. So I have been going through the built in tutorails. I get to "Get to know selections". The one with the fruit. I get to stage 2 of 4. Where you draw around the fruit and use the eye dropper tool, then use EDIT and FILL. After this, it won't let me click next to move onto the next step. Is this a bug, or am I missing something here?

 

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Yes. That's a bug and it should be fixed in the latest Photoshop update, 22.2. Please let me know if it doesn't work for you in PS 22.2.

It sounds like it is the tutorial that you are having an issue with rather than Photoshop.  Can you give us thhe link to that tutorial?

There's no link, as it is a built in tutorial within Photoshop. It gives you instructions highlighted in blue, on what to do.

Those tutorials don't let you go to the next step unless you have completed the current step as it expects you to. Can you show a screen shot of your screen and include what the tutorial has told you to do? We should be able to spot the issue.

Here are 7 screen shots, showing the steps I have taken. On the last screen shot, you can see that I cannot proceed any further.

It's not a very good tutorial. You need to deselect - you still have the marching ants? cnt / cmd +d to deselect or go to the select dropdown menu and choose deselect.

This is definitely a bug. I get to the same step:

It's acting like I'm still in the Fill dialog, even though I completed that step. Can't click Next.

Thanks for confirming this. I thought it may have been something, I had done wrong.

Sorry to say that in November I started learning Photoshop and had the same problem. I was told to use the online tutorials instead. So, apparently, the issue still exists.

Hi @Lillian21793234x9fn ,

Apparently, the bug they fixed wasn't this one. My apologies. If you are having problems with the Edit>Fill step, it is likely because previous Fill dialog box settings have persisted. Please try again and ensure that, in addition to selecting Foreground Color, you also select Mode=Normal and Opacity=100%.

Please let me know how it goes.

I'm new to PS and trying to learn from the tutorials is difficult with many of them not letting me go the the NEXT step or in some cases it appears the directions are inaccurate. I'm using PS 2022 on a MacBook Pro running 12.1. 
As an example in Layers tutorials there is one with a deer and changingb

 antlers into a tree branch. Doesn't allow me to proceed. The Double Exposure one doesn't work at all. There are several others.

I'm on Windows. I was able to go through the tutorial with the deer just fine but I had some trouble with the double-exposure tutorial like you had. I was able to kickstart it by clicking the visibility of the "Beach" layer. Try doing something small (like clicking the visibility of a layer if something is amiss).

You have two options.  Turn on Rich Tool Tips in Preferences > Tools

This will cause links to the videos etc. to pop up when you hover over tools.

This can become intensely annoying though, and interupt your workflow, so a better option IMO is to use Discover which you open by clicking on the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner on the interface.

Good luck.

Does Discover work offline? because I can't always work online . I remember back in the days photoshop 2015 had hands-on tutorials, those are what i'm really looking for.
