I can't seem to undo after pressing command 3 to change back photoshop to its original form, it just seems to stay black and white. I went to my channels to select RGB but it won't let me press it unless deselect another, and when I deselect it, it takes away 2 instead of 1. I've tried pressing Command 1,2,3,4,5 to change it back but it just makes it either darker or brighter. I can't undo this either. What do I do?

Hi

Cmd+3 is the shortcut for the Red channel, which would make your image appear grayscale. Cmd+2 should put it back, but it’s not?

(Cmd+4 and Cmd+5 will put you on any alpha channels you have created, so those won’t help.)

Since your brightness is changing instead of your channels, make sure your fingers didn’t slide up a row and that you are not accidentally pressing F1 and F2. Those keys adjust the brightness by default.

I've had this happen several times, and not been able to see from the history what caused it.  Hitting escape fixed on at least one of those occasions.  I have a feeling it is to do with our fingers being faster than our brains, and flying over the keyboard using muscle memory, but not always getting it right.  I am sure that I was always able to resolve things, but other than using Escape, I am not sure what I'd done to cause it, nor how I fixed it.

Hi, press CDM + 2 (if you use Mac OS) or CTRL + 2 (if you use Windows) and everything should return to normal.

Are you using an older version of Photoshop? The RGB composite channel selection used to be Ctrl+~  (or Cmd+~) which can still be used by checking use Legacy channel shortcuts in the Edit > Keyboard shortcuts dialogue
