Hey there,

I'm having a problem with the brush tool showing up as grey rather than black. I'm using the hard round preset and all colours are set to black. Image mode is set to RGB colour and 8bits. I have the brush size at 2px. If I increase the px size the brush colour goes darker. But I need it to be black at 2px instead of grey. How can I get it to be?

Many thanks.

Hi and Welcome to PSG

Check to make sure a new document is set to RGB

Also try resetting PS Tools

Failing that try resetting PS preferences

To restore preferences quickly using a keyboard shortcut: Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) as you start Photoshop. You are prompted to delete the current settings. The new preferences files are created the next time you start Photoshop.
