Painterly edit not working

I have used this edit before but now it is not working and I cannot tell what has changed. 
After I select "Paint Brush", the photo is covered with the semi-transparent film, but when I stamp the pattern on the photo, it does not "show" the photo.  The semi-transparent film remains.  I have tried different brushes, sizes, and transparencies, but nothing works. Any suggestions?

Any changes you have made to preferences will be lost.  You should not lose your NIK plug-ins (unless you have possibly added a plug-in folder in preferences).  There should be no unrecoverable consequence.  Essentially, the reset puts the program into its "out of the box" condition.

Further info...I can choose the canvas color and if I want a texture, but cannot get the photo to show through the transparent film when I stamp the brush pattern on it.

Try resetting the preferences file. Go to Edit>Preferences>General tab and click the Reset Preferences on next launch button.

It says that if I do that, it "cannot be undone". Will I lose my Nik plug in? Any other negative consequences of performing this action that I should be awar of?

Thanks Greg S.; it worked. I had seen the "fix" but was nervous about
resetting. Thanks for setting my mind at ease and fixing the problem too.
