When retouching with the clone stamp, the whole image goes out and the gray area flashes. How to fix?

Hi there,

Sorry to hear that the Clone stamp is causing flashes on the canvas. Could you please try deselecting "Use Graphics Processor" located in Photoshop's Preferences > Performance, then relaunch Photoshop and let us know if it helps?

Regards,
Sahil

I am having the same problem. Gave that suggestion a try, it did not solve the issue. I use the frequency separation process and it seems to mostly happen in that situation on the current layer being sampled, especially when zoomed in and tapping the brush repeatedly for fine texture correction. I checked out whether it was my wacom tablet or adobe updates, those efforts did not present any solutions. My OS is up to date. The screen flashing in my face makes it challenging to see what I'm doing, it's slowing down the workflow so if you have any other ideas it would be most appreciated! Thank you.

Nope! Never did and now there’s an issue with my computer being too old to
update to the most current OS which won’t let me do PS updates so... it
continues to severely interfere with my workflow. Do you have any
suggestions?

I replied from my email and it has a signature for a company I work for. I had no idea that signature would post, I didn't even reply from that address! Is there any way to delete this reply? This website is giving me no options.

I'm still haveing this problem, and have been since Photoshop 20. Using clone stamp, or heal brush causes gray flashing. I fi choose a point to reference it clashes, and there is a delay after I have painted in my selection. I've tried with out my wacom, and it persists. I am running big sur, both photoshop 21 and my OS are up to date, and my graphics processor is turned off in Photoshop preferences. 

It also blinks when I zoom in and sometimes the gray out persists for a few seconds or until i zoom in or cause the screen to refesh somehow.

Is there a fix for this yet?

I have not heard anything back, still having the same issue but it’s a
little better in my older version of photoshop I think the 2018 whatever
number that was. Isn’t it so frustrating? I do a lot of retouching with the
clone stamp when retouching skin and it’s absolutely maddening. I am also
sensitive to flashing lights so when the screen blinks that rapidly....
it’s rough. I hope someone gives us answers!
