    Text Color

    I was able to change text color but I must have clicked something and now I cannot change text color. I highlight the text, click on the color box on the toolbar which seems to be stuck on light grey, pick for example red click ok and it remains light grey. I may have clicked something that caused this. I am new as you can probably tell, please help.

    Re: Text Color

    Are you clicking on the colour picker from the top tool bar?

    Re: Text Color

    When I first started with ps I used to try changing text colour from the left hand colour picker but I learnt that I needed to use the top colour picker in the text toolbar. I dunno what your problem is then :(

    If the color picker won't change the gray, open the COLORS tab, that has preset color boxes. Pick a colored box and see if that eliminates the gray.

    Re: Text Color

    Is the text stuck on grey or the color picker box? In case it's the first, maybe you have a color overlay activated for the text layer

    Are you having the same problem as this poster? Maybe you should start your own thread.

    Re: Text Color

    just check the image mode as well. It should be RGB. If its gray scale colors will not change other than shades of grey.
