Photohop 2021 Masking issues

Since the newest photoshop version, masking isn't working properly anymore.

When I use the brush or filling tool with 100% black, the part of the layer i wanted to mask out is still slightly visible.

When I switch to the channels and use the brush again, it's finally at 100% and therefore invisible.

But switching back to the layers and painting again with 100% black, it reappears...

I've checked everything, the creative cloud is up to date, so is the iMac - since today I'm working with macOs Big Sur - still the same issues. Right now I have to work with the old 2020 version to avoid this problem.

Anybody got an idea?

Thanks for your help.

Have you reset the Fore-/Background Color by hitting D?

Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Brush Settings, Options Bar, …) visible?

Alright, the problem is fixed and I hereby admit that I'm simply stupid.

To be honest - I usually don't press "D" on the keyboard but I click on the small icon above the Fore-/Background colors to reset them. In general it doesn't matter how you reset it.... unless you don't click right... I must have missed it and obviously took it for granted. And as that happened right after the update (and never before) it was easier to blame Adobe 😉

So thanks for your help anyway. I'm going to cry now 😉

Cheers

Don’t beat yourself up, you have good chance to run up against a proper Photoshop bug yet – maybe a missing HUD Color Picker, a missing Brush Size and Hardness display, …

Turn off the visibility of the lower layers make sure what you are seeing is not being blended in. You may have some low opacity pixels in the masked layer.
