I use the pen tool to make a selection, close the path, right click to make a selection but the operation options are greyed out. I also have tried doing it through the menu at the top I really need these options.

 

I have tried ressetting photoshop preferences, resetting the pen, restatring photoshop and my mac, but still when I go to make my selection these options are greyed out.

 

I am making the pen selection on a 16bit RGB photo, Ive tried doing it on the background layer, a layer copy and a blank layer but the same always, no options to add, subtract or intersect selection.

If no Selection is active then obviously »Add to Selecttion«, »Subtract from Selecttion« and »Intersect with Intersection« would be nonsensical. 

So is a Selection active already? 

 

Please post a screenshot that includes all the relevant UI elements.
