Hello. I am having an issue with Photoshop on Windows. When I copy an image and then paste it onto another layer, that copied image turns completely white as soon as it's pasted. What can I do to fix this? This is quite urgent as I am working on a project that needs to be submitted this week.
Attached to this post is a screenshot of the problem. As you can see, some of the text is cut off and that's where the image supposedly is.
Any help would be much appreciated.
- I am using the April 2020 (21.1.2) version of Photoshop
- I have made sure that everything is on RGB and not Greyscale.
Hi you are doing masking for that layer which you have masked confirm mask first for it then drag the picture using move tool copy paste not work this way....regards
Hi. I'm having the same problem but I don't understand this answer at all. Can anybody weigh in a little more clearly? Thanks.

Within the Performance tab of the Photoshop Preferences is an option called Legacy Compositing. Does changing this help?
It did! Thank you so much.
Excellent. Happy to help.
It looks like this option has been removed as of 4 Dec 2020. Is there another way to resolve this copy-pasting-whiteness issue?
I'm having this same issue, but looks like this solution has been removed from the product. Any updates on fixing this or finding a quick solution?
A couple of things I did to resolve my issues:
Hope this helps others who run into this issue!
Try "Deactivate Native Canvas" under "Technology Previews". (Also try disabling GPU accleration under Performance > Graphics Processor Settings > Use Graphics Processor. If this works, look into updating your GPU's driver or another driver.)
