My gradient tool is set on Classic Gradient and the dropdown is dimmed.

I have the latest updates for both Photoshop (24.7.0) and the beta, (25.1.0) and in both versions I suddenly no longer have access to the gradient tool. It is stuck on Classic Gradient and the dropdown is dimmed and inaccessible. I am on Windows 11. How do I get the Gradient back?

You appear to be in Quick Mask Mode so the Gradient Tool auto switches to Classic gradient.

 

To Exit Quick Mask Mode press Q on your keyboard, click on the Quick Mask Mode icon in the Tools Panel or

go to Select and uncheck Edit in Quick Mask Mode.

Quick mask diables the live gradient. Can't believe I never noticed that before. Thank you.

'Your' is only used for possessive, 'you're' is used for 'you are'. 😉
