Hi 

I have a problem with the lightning effect in  PS where if I wanna add lightning effects to a layer it takes me to the lightning effects interface but I can't see the light or the lightning effect circle setting where I can adjust the radius or brightness etc.

In v22.4 you need to go to Preferences - Technology Previews and check Deactivate Native Canvas. Then press OK and close and restart Photoshop.  Dave

Hi there,

 

That shouldn't be happening as Lightning Effects in Photoshop is not working, let's make it right.

 

Which exact version of Photoshop are you using and what is your computer's OS?

 

Hold down the Alt key in the Lighting effects dialog and you will see the Cancel button change to Reset. Click on Reset and restart Photoshop for good measure.

 

If that does not help, would you mind restoring the preferences for Photoshop & see if it helps? See this article for reference: https://t.co/ulJI7cGn1G You may want to backup your settings beforehand: https://t.co/4dX7gkr36D

 

Thanks,

Akash
