The colours in Photoshop is not working. Every time I try picking a colour from the swatches/make a colour or select it from the colour gradients it just gives me a grey scale colours. All the different colours, once picked just shows in different shades of grey. How do I fix this?

It sounds like you have a layer mask selected or a single channel. Make sure you have the pixel part of a layer selected.

The other possibility is that your document is grayscale or bitmap.

Image > Mode > RGB was the right fix. For some reason my photoshop was switching modes while I was working and this was throwing me off because I would start in RGB then somehow everything just changed to grey when I went to choose a colour.

Thank you
