my Monitor is flickering while hovering my mouse over the tool at of Photoshop. Changing from any tool to brush for example - screen flickering couple times. Updates all done (Windows 10 + Adobe) and drivers up to date either. Ideas anyone?
7700k, 32GB 3200Mhz, RTX2070s
First, try disabling GPU in the preferences (Preformance). Any better?
If not, recalibrate and build a new ICC profile, the old one might be corrupted.
If you are using software/hardware for this task, be sure the software is set to build a matrix not LUT profile, Version 2 not Version 4 profile.
Thank you for your guidance!
tried this first, no change. Monitor are 2x HP 27es with technicolor preset.
worked with this setup last with no problems.
this flickering is new (couple weeks) maybe gpu driver?
If turning OFF GPU works, it's a GPU bug and you need to contact the manufacturer or find out if there's an updated driver for it.
I am experiencing the same problem with the flickering when hovering the mouse over any tool.
I believe all drivers are up-to-date with my grahics card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super.
I am not exactly sure what ICC is (I searched on Internet in regard to this, but I don't think this applies to my set up, I don't do any printing of images).
I did turn OFF GPU but flickering still continues.
The flickering started with the latest update to my CC Photoshop (22.4.2)
I don't know what I should do in regard to the flickering. Any suggestions? I have in the past called Adobe support, and maybe I should do this if I can't get any suggestions here other than that was posted already.
I am updating my previous post.
My computer tech had updated my drivers for my graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super) around the same time as the update (22.4.2) to CC Photoshop. He told me other people using this graphics card were experiencing flickering as well. He removed my "current" driver tonight, and installed an older version. This solved my problem! I no longer have any flickering when I hover the mouse over a tool.
This perhaps may be of help to anyone else who may be having the same problem as I did.
I have the same issue when i hover over a tool to openthe tooltip the entire screen flickers
GPU: 3070 Laptop GPU
do you know which ver. number nvidia driver fixed the issue?
same problem with my rtx 2060
Have same issue, also using 2x HP 27es. Maybe it's related?
Same issue here. Same monitor and RTX 2060...
The problem I had was with the graphics driver. My computer tech had to go back to version 452.06. My problem began with the version 462.59. And a later update (471.11) was bad too. So, for me, no more updating the drivers (since 7/1/2021).
I hope what I did has helped you (Baran.....).
I began to experience the flickering again. Windows 10 did an update a week or so ago. And even though my tech turned off the updating of the graphics driver, Windows did the update. Uninstalled the driver and tried to update with the version that I had before. The system didn't allow for this. I had an old monitor that I decided to try (for chuckles and grins). As it turns out, this monitor hooks up with analog VGA as opposed to HDMI. As a side note, when addressing the flickering problem, I did buy a new HDMI cable (which didn't solve the problem). After my tech hooked up the old monitor via VGA, no flickering! So he unhooked my old monitor and hooked up my current HDMI monitor via the VGA connection! Problem solved, strangely enough.
Regards to all,
I had the same problem and I found out that if I go to the "Nvidia control panel" under the "change resolution" menu and I put the refresh rate to 60hz, the problem is solved. Maybe Photoshop doesn't handle well high refresh rate. I have a 165hz refresh rate monitor and an rtx2060 super.
Thank you for your comment. I am not sure if my tech fiddled with refresh rates, but for some reason, I think he may have. I will pass along your comment to him - and I will see if he tried what you did in order to solve my problem. For some reason, I think he did so. But definitely will find out. Thank you again! I am glad you were able to resolve your issue!
Photoshop did it again! Plsslng me off!
Thanks ADOBE wonderful!!!! NOT!!!!!!
I've been facing the same issue when I upgraded my Gpu to RTX 3090, Drivers are upto date. It was working flawless with GTX 1060 before. I don't know what's all this now!
Anyways, i found two solutions to avoid that flickering.
1. Image scalling (85%)
2. Uncheck that Graphics from "Tools" Tab in Adobe Photoshop Cc.
I hope Photoshop Developers will resolve this issue ASAP.
Same problem here. Incredibly annoying.
Tried a few options that were discussed here, but nothing helped. Needless to say that all drivers and CC versions are up-to-date. My screen refresh rate is on 60Hz.
It's the Illustrator tooltips that trigger the flashing on hover. So I've now simply disabled them:
Edit > Preferences > General> uncheck 'Show tool tips'
They're just for context anyway and I for one can live without them in favour of a flicker-free UX.
That a boy! 😛
This solved the problem for me: Turns out the GPU tells the monitor if the content being displayed is a video, and some monitors reconfigure themselves when this happens, causing flickering. Adobe tooltips are videos, hence the problem.
Go to Nvidia control panel > Adjust desktop color settings Scroll until yo see "content type being reported to the display" and change it to "Desktop programs"
