When I use a layer mask, to erase part of the layer effect. Not everything is erased. A small residue remains. Even when all the settings seem normal and opacity and flow are at 100%. I already reset my brushes to default and I updated the newest update. The problem remains.
Can you post a screenshot with all the pertinent panels opened, also what OS and exact version of Photoshop are you using.
Have you tried resetting Photoshop preferences
Hi Ged, I did try your suggestion with the reset preferences on quit. I also reset the brushes to default. What do you mean with "al the pertinent panels"? The versions I'm working with are: Mac OS High Sierra version 10.13.1. Photoshop version 19.1.6
A screenshot with the image you are working on showing us what you see. Include the layers panel, brush selection in the options bar etc.
In post 1 you have been asked to provide a screenshot – why did you not do that?
This worked for me! Thank you 🙂
Depending on the effect you may benefit from checking this box
I tried this, but I didn't notice any change
Check that your brush colour is actually black. It can look black when in fact it is just a very dark gray.
It is black 00000. That was the first thing I tried.
Did you ever get an answer to your question? I'm having the exact same issue. It's really frustrating
I'm also having this issue. Was there ever a resolution? It was working fine with one image, the next image I was getting a ghosted image of the mask. Being busy season right now and having many Christmas deadlines, I am very frustrated.
Did you fix it? if so, how?
1. Right click on the layer mask.
2. click on "mask options"
3. and Click on "Cancel"
I don't know why, but it worked for me.
