I used to be able to use the quick selection tool to select a part of a photo, and then press command + C and then press command + V and voila, a new layer would appear - that new layer would have in it the portion of the photo that I had selected, and nothing else. YAY!
NOW, when I do this SAME maneuver, a new layer appears, but it is EMPTY. Invisible. Nothing there. Opacity is at 100%.
Can anyone help me fix this simple gesture that I used to use all the time? Mac OS Big Sur 11.2.2
