I'm using paint bucket for fill colors and though I see and choose colors from the spectrum all I am getting is shades of gray. What happened to the colors for the foreground and background, why does it only come out shades of gray even though in picker it shows I have picked a color?
you are probably working in a black and white (grayscale) document. go to image> mode> RGB color.
another possibilty: you may be working on a mask. press esc, then go to go to layer> new layer, and se if that helps.
exactly esty, thanks, I'm working with black and white line drawings, image> mode> RGB color did the trick, big thanks
yes!! Thank you...
your advise >IMAGE > mode> RGB made it work..
compared to... when when I clicked RGB near the swatches it didint help
I struggled with the same problem for ages, having checked the colour mode was on RGB, adjusting the hue etc. The solution that worked for me was that I realized the black & white adjustment layer on the image I was working on was blocking the colour that I was trying to apply so everything was appearing as grey. To resolve I needed to go into the B&W adjustment layer and erase the black and white from the area of colour that I was trying to apply
I am having this same issues and my layer mask is not on an adjustment layer. My mask is on a shape and when I select the brush tool with the mask selected and the color comes out grey. My mode is RGB. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.
Solved for you maybe... NOT ME!
