My lighting effects (Render > Lighting Effects) does not work properly - changing the values does nothing and when you select "OK" it just renders the artwork to grey. Also, the manual adjustment rings are not displaying.
I have tried Preferences > Technology Previews > "Deactivate Native Canvas" as well as "use Graphics Processor" under Preferences > Performance multiple times and restarting photoshop. It worked once now not at all. I need Light Effects for an urgent job - I have also tried a different Mac and it's the exact same. Both running OS Big Sur 11.4. Is this a bug with the new release?
What specific Mac are you running on? What is the graphics card?
Hi Kevin. I've tried on 2 macs - one is a MB Pro 2017, Intel Graphics 630 1.5GB and one is an iMac 2019 with Radeon Pro 555X 2 GB - these are the values from "About this Mac". I've uninstalled and re-installed photoshop on the macbook, but it's the still same. If I use Light Effects once, it is then greyed out in the menu when I try again.
Thank you @jane-e - I had done this but found the following on a similar post and this has now solved the issue:
Hold down the following keyboard shortcut and launch Photoshop:
Now with "Deactivate Native Canvas" checked it is working again.
You're welcome, @PrunusAv18
Resetting Preferences will put Photoshop back to a factory installation and will clear things up if PS starts to misbehave. You want to back up any customization first, such as Actions, Brushes, and anything else you have created.
Thanks Prunus Av18. I have off and on been trying everything ever since Big Sur came out - nobody at adobe could help. But thanks to you, I have my lighting effects and lens flare back! Thanks again!
