Are you talking about Quick Mask with the Rubylith red effect?
Preferences - Cursors - Painting Cursors - Normal Brush Tip. Alt - Right clik. Now you can se the red overlay. Rize the brush and the softness.
Version 22.1 and we still keep on with no red overlay !!!!.
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.
Sorry - now. I have 2 screens, that use the same grafic card. Each version of Photoshop on both. Precerence excatly the same om both versions. No luck! Only works on CC 2019 😞
I have same problem. When I install newest version of photoshop brush red color overlay is missing. uninstall newst version of photoshop then install previous version and everything ok. I didnt understand why. Am I wrong some adjustment
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
I am on a 2019 mac book pro and it doesn't work for me. I would be pissed if Adobe decided not to support this GPU
I have the same problem, I have tried to reset the preference as well but notthing, from the last update the red overlay from the brush is missing, and is very annoing. I am on 22.0.1, should I revert back to older version?
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.
Yes I did the same for now
had exactly the same problem. I uninstalled 22.0.1 and installed 22.0.0 again. Now it works again.
MacOS 10.15.7 with Radeon RX 580 8 GB
A fix for this would be appreciated.
So i switched from mac to windows to work properly with photoshop (in mac it was bugged and crashed everything in 20-30 minutes of work).
Today, in a fresh installed system, i miss the red overlay too...
Thanks photoshop and adobe professional team!
Same problem here on my iMac. Arg... I even waited for this update thinking the bugs would be worked out by now. A solution would be nice.
Yes, and it has not been fixed in 22.1
same for me no red overlay in the recent version
Same problem here … the Brush Preview Overlay is gone ?!
Sigh. Not for me. Maybe a setting has changed. How can I try to force the appearance of this brush preview overlay?
