I'm working on a Macbook Air M1, and I've been using Adobe Elements since I got the laptop last May. Just recently Premiere Elements has had a particular trouble with the Color Picker. It's not displaying the colors in the tool, then opening the color picker gives me the odd pallete displayed below.
Has this error shown up for anyone else, and is there a solution for this display issue?
what happens if you select "Only web colors"?
Thanks, but I tried that before, and it ended up like this.
Me 'n' thee, my friend. Spent quite a few hours with Adobe Customer Service experts who are aware of this problem with the conflict with Sonoma 14.0. Adobe's temporary solution was "download a free 30-day PSE 2023 trial" while we try to resolve it. Or, purchase PSE 2023 (which isn't logical because they're releasing PSE 2024 soon).
Have you just upgraded to the Sonoma OS? If so, that is likely the source of your problem. For some reason, Apple never ensures that legacy software will work with its latest OS. (And based on all the Mac users on this forum who seem to be surprised by this, I assume Apple makes no effort to warn its customers about this problem).
How do you resolve this issue?
I am also having this problem. No matter the chosen color the tool selected (paint, brush, type etc) only gives a gray tone.
Sounds like you just need to change you image mode from grsayscale.
Yes this has happened to me too. I upgraded to Sonoma 14.0 and get the same. Its a faff but you can still get all the color range by moving the slider into the colour spectrum and then moving the curser around to find what you're looking for.
I've also found that all the icons in the effects panel aren't displaying properly, but do still work. Fortunately I have a windows 11 laptop that is displaying everything as it should be, so I can revert to that when necessary. Hopefully someone will deliver a fix, or like most will now wait until 2024 is released!
I haven't found a solution yet, but I've just upgraded to Elements 2024 (I was going to do it anyway) and that release doesn't seem to have the issue with the Sonoma OS.
