Installed the new Photoshop 2020 yesterday, and the red overlay on brushes didn't work. Spend a couple of hours with support - no luck.
Today I started Photoshop CC and the red overlay was there! Checked that I had EXACTLY same settings in both programs - still no luck in 2020 😞
Does anybody have the same problem?

Are you talking about Quick Mask with the Rubylith red effect?

When you talk of the red overlay, are you referring to when you paint a mask, the painted area turns red, or are you ref5to when you size the brush, the brush turns red to see whe size and feathering?  If the latter, you graphics card might not be detected by Photoshop due to a sniffer error - happens a lot with Intel cards. A low battery might cause this, among other reasons.

Hi

The issue you have is more than likely with your GPU, Photoshop version 21.2 has rendered some older and not so old GPU's useless with this update

Hey. I have the exact same problem. Had to rollback to version 21.2.4. I've also tried reseting the preference with no results. Hopefully they can adress this problem in the next version.

It seems that's a bug in the 22.0.1 version.

There's an entry in the Photoshop bug forum:

Sigh. Not for me. Maybe a setting has changed. How can I try to force the appearance of this brush preview overlay?
