I can not deselect in Photoshop, not with command + D and not by deselecting from the menu, the area is greyed out. Please help, it's driving me nuts.
Can you post a screenshot of the Photoshop interface will all the pertinent panels opened
Is a Selection definitively active?
I have part of it figured out, command + D works to deselect a selection, great. Now I want to figure out how to deselect a tool. I'm completely new to photoshop and almost want to give up.
No need to give up, there's always plenty of help on this forum.
All the tools have shortcuts, if you hover the mouse over each tool it will disaply the shortcut for that tool
You can also use the Discover panel
Thank you so much, also for the encouragement, I could use this!
You're welcome and feel free to post any questions you may have, Photoshop is a big learning curve but there's always plenty of helpful experienced people on this forum willing to help you along your journey
And to make sure: This refers to Selections as in »marching ants«, not to selecting Layers or Channels.
