Today any file I open in Photoshop suddently has a bright green color across the entire screen. Then, as I try and work on the file, the images appear and disapper, the scale of the artboard jumps back and forth in size, the images on my screen jump back and forth in their position. There's often something of a strobe effect. Sometimes goes charcoal grey. So it is completely unusable.
Has never happened before. Have uninstalled and reinstalled the latest version. But still same horrible effect.
Any ideas? Any suggestions?
Hi. It sounds like an issue with your Grapics Card may be the culprit. Can you please tell us more about your computer's configuration? Which OS, which GPU, etc? Have you recently updated Photoshop, your operating system, or your graphics card software. I do suggest checking the website for your graphics card manufacturer to see if there's an update.
Another suggestion is to go to Photoshop> Preferences> Performance (Mac), or Edit> Preferences> Performance (Windows) and turn off the Use GPU option on the upper left part of the resulting window.
Hi there.... thanks for trying to help...
I have a 2019 16-inch Macbook Pro with 32 GB of memory running Mac OS 11.5.1 and a AMD Radeon Pro 5500M GPU with 8GB.
And, yes I have recently updated both Photoshop (V22.4.3) and the Mac OS.
Turning off the use GPU option doesn't help unfortunately.
But am completely open to any other solutions.
This exact thing started happening for me about 2 hours ago. I'd been working all morning with no issues and all of a sudden when I was cropping an image, the PS window just went vivid green. I researched it and founs a solution which was to check the Deactivate Native Canvas checkbox in the "Technology Previews" preference.
After doing this though, now all my images open as completely black unltil I zoom out. Frustrating. Nothing has changed on my Mac as far as hardware or software updates.
And my hardware is a late 2013 MacPro, 3.5 GHz with 32 GB of ram running OS Catalina. Just upgraded to PS version 22.4.3 to see if it fixes it.
Checking that Deactivate Native Canvas button has helped..... but, like you, I'm getting black boxes until I zoom out. So not perfect again.
Thanks for your advice.
Jim, I'm back to working 100 percent, not sure what happened. I went back in and unchecked the Deactivte Native Canvas" checkbox and restarted and everything seems to be normal. Go figure
