My photoshop updated and it's so frustrating! It's extremely frustrating when things aren't the same.
First, my spot healing tool just allows me to do circles. Previously I could draw a line with it and it would corrrect the entire spot. Is there a setting to allow me to get back to that?
After the update- I lost all my brushes, I have since reloaded them. Which is just annoying! However, my watermark brush is gone. So I usually take my logo and create a brush preset for easy watermarking. It's not working now, well I can still do it but the brush is faint no matter how high my opasity is. I've taken my logo and tried, I've also made it a Grey scale hoping it would be darker and nothing is working. Do you have a recommendation on how to make a watermark brush which you can actually see?
I mean they should on creating more features or enhancing what they already have I just feel like I took major step backs in the amount of time I edit.
As to the spot healing tool, examine your keyboard to ensure you don't have a modifer key locked down. You can also reset the preferences which might solve the issue. Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) immediately after launching Photoshop. You will be prompted to delete the current settings.
(Mac OS only) Open the Preferences folder in the Library folder*, and drag the Adobe Photoshop CS Settings folder to the Trash.
This action only affects the items found in the preferences dialog box. Numerous program settings are stored in the Adobe Photoshop Preferences file, including general display options, file-saving options, performance options, cursor options, transparency options, type options, and options for plug‑ins and scratch disks. Brushes (and lots of other setting) are not affected by the above instructions for deleting preferences. You may wish to make a screen capture of the settings in the Preferences dialog to reset them prior to deleting of this file.
Note: The user Library folder is hidden by default on macOS. To access files in the hidden user Library folder, see How to access hidden user library files. Drag the entire Adobe Photoshop [Version] Settings folder to the desktop or somewhere safe for a back-up of your settings
