When I use a layer mask, to erase part of the layer effect. Not everything is erased. A small residue remains. Even when all the settings seem normal and opacity and flow are at 100%. I already reset my brushes to default and I updated the newest update. The problem remains.
Can you post a screenshot with all the pertinent panels opened, also what OS and exact version of Photoshop are you using.
Have you tried resetting Photoshop preferences
Hi Ged, I did try your suggestion with the reset preferences on quit. I also reset the brushes to default. What do you mean with "al the pertinent panels"? The versions I'm working with are: Mac OS High Sierra version 10.13.1. Photoshop version 19.1.6
A screenshot with the image you are working on showing us what you see. Include the layers panel, brush selection in the options bar etc.
In post 1 you have been asked to provide a screenshot – why did you not do that?
This worked for me! Thank you 🙂
Depending on the effect you may benefit from checking this box
I tried this, but I didn't notice any change
Check that your brush colour is actually black. It can look black when in fact it is just a very dark gray.
It is black 00000. That was the first thing I tried.
Did you ever get an answer to your question? I'm having the exact same issue. It's really frustrating
I'm also having this issue. Was there ever a resolution? It was working fine with one image, the next image I was getting a ghosted image of the mask. Being busy season right now and having many Christmas deadlines, I am very frustrated.
Did you fix it? if so, how?
1. Right click on the layer mask.
2. click on "mask options"
3. and Click on "Cancel"
I don't know why, but it worked for me.
Check your foreground/Background color (those little squares on the bottom left site) and make sure that you are at fully black, on the background and fully white on the foreground. And you got your problem fixed
