I just upgraded PS on my mac to 24.0. My macOS is Big Sur 11.7.1. As a result of the upgrade the refine edge brush on select and mask no longer works as it did in previous PS versions. The "decontaminate colors" box in the output settings doesn't work either. Is there a fix for this?
Hi. May I ask what precise issue the Refine Edge brush is doing? When I went to test this, I realized I'd acidentally been focused on the wrong layer- one that already had a mask, yet the Refine Edge brush worked fine. As it did when I readjusted my focus to the correct layer. But, Decontaminate Colors was OFF, when I was on the wrong layer, and when I switched to the correct, original, unmasked layer, Decontaminate was just fine...

It's difficult to accurately describe what the brush was doing, but a friend suggested reloading an older version of photoshop, which I did. So I reloaded photoshop V 22 and the brush as well as select & mask worked fine. So evidently macOS Big Sur 11.7.1 or some other program issue was not compatible with photoshop V 24.0. I just bought a new mac book pro so I'm hoping it will be compatible with all of photoshop V 24 's functions.
