My eraser was working fine yesterday and then suddenly instead of  erasing and leaving the base photo intact, it is erasing right down through everything and the under lying color which is showing (bsically making the eraser a paint brush". 

This happens no matter what typr of eraser tool I select. 

 

Any help on how I can get it back to it erasing only what needs to be erased and leaving the core iamge intact would be appreciated. I have tried resetting the tool to default settings.

I cannot figure it out.

 

Thank you
