Photoshop won't let me use the filters Gallery, as it is in gray, when I try to select it.


The Gallery of filters does not work on my PS, my doc is already and 8-bit RGB color, do not know what is the cause?


Check the document mode and depth.

Then check the size of the document - Gallery of filters will not work more than 30,000 pixels in each dimension.

  • I can ' add a Form 2848 IRS in Acrobat Pro field - he tells me that I have to use Live Cycle - it also won't let me use the typewriter tool

    I type in IRS Form 2848 - it won't let me add a field.  He let me use the typewriter tool.  It says I should use Live Cycle.  I use Acrobat Pro.  Any ideas?

    There is nothing you can do about it, except for the use of LiveCycle. The IRS obviously does not want people to do things to their forms.

  • CC of Photoshop won't let me edit the brush

    I am trying to edit a brush I just created, but all options are locked and the buttons are disabled, it won't let me choose a brush, I tried the button Reset locked, but nothing has changed.

    Thanks in advance,


    You can use the rest of Photoshop OK? It looks like little to PS is waiting for input before it will do anything, like you have an asset free transform or crops waiting to be committed to or escaped. Oh and the Brush tool sellected again.

  • 13 elements Photoshop won't let me enter the letters in the product key box, only numbers

    I have a retail version of Photoshop elements 13 from Bestbuy and when I go to enter a product key, the area where you enter the key will except numbers, which means that when I press a letter key (i.e., A, S, D, F) it will not enter the letter in the box.

    Serial numbers are strictly digital.  You might be looking at a redemption code, which allows to get the serial number.

  • Then... Photoshop won't let you change the form inside a mask unrelated now?

    Anyone else having the problem of scaling a form inside a mask not linked?

    Before the update I could do without the mask. After the last update, it evolves the mask even without him being related.

    You can always push the autour images without changing the mask... but scaling scales the mask.

    Not that I can't get around that problem, but WTF.


    -Chris Farley

    I can't repro this, but there are conditions. Steps to follow:

    • Create a document of any type.
    • Create a shape of any type by using the shape tools. Add a layer mask and he break the link.
    • Here is the conditional part: select one of the other tools (like the move tool). Target tile form. Try to turn the form using Ctrl/Cmd + T. The shape and the mask of her resize. This does not happen with other types of layer (as of rasterized images).

    The only way I could not repro is to date if I have a selected shape tool; so I'm able to transform as usual.

  • I downloaded lightroom 6 on windows 10 and when I open the app it won't let me use the app... Help, please.

    When I try to open lightroom 6 on windows 10 it is said, "adobe has stopped working, windows is looking for a solution to this and will inform you as soon as it is detected. Adobe will be closed "." Please help me, it's stupid, I paid $150 for this software and I can't even use it.

    Step 1.

    Please try to update the graphics drivers on the manufacturing site.

    Reference: Intel® Driver Update Utility

    Step 2.

    If you have tried the steps above, then simple go to control panel > Device Manager > Display Adapter > right-click on the Intel graphics card and expand it and disable it.

    Once that is done, open Lightroom see if it works.

    Step 3.

    Œuvres with Lightroom fine after completing step 2, and then clear the graphics processor of Lightroom preferences.

    Open Lightroom

    Go to Lightroom preferences in the Edit menu

    Click the performance tab

    Deselect the graphics processor

    Restart Lightroom.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Kind regards


  • iTunes won't let me use the backup

    Today, I got the 6 s, and I'm trying to restore from a backup of my 5s I made earlier today. However when he gives me the options for backups I don't see that I'm looking for. When I plug the s 5 it is said that the last backup of it was today and when I go into preferences back to top shows there. Is there anyway that I can use the back up? Thank you.

    Chances are your new phone is not being updated, so that it cannot find the backup that you did on your most recently updated device.

    Ex: If only your iPhone's iOS 9.1, backups performed in this version is unusable on phones that are not updated to this version.

    Solution: Update your phone! You will have to set up as new, update, then go to settings > General > reset > erase content and settings to reset the phone to factory settings, and then restore from backup!

  • new iMac won't let me use the area of the Image

    I have an iMac with OS X 10.9.4.

    I have always used HP Image Zone with my old but still-going-strong Photosmart 3210 printer/scanner, especially to edit my photos.

    Although the Mac is very happy to talk to the printer and the printing and scanning, it will not Image area install because it says "Power PC applications are no longer supported".

    Is there any solution for this? A new application or perhaps a plug-in?

    Downloads available, that I tried not to do the trick, and I really can't on with iPhoto.

    Hi higgi-san, welcome to the forums!

    I noticed your post not being able to use the area of the Image with your OS X 10.9.4. After checking into it for you, there is no comprehensive software available on the Mavericks for the Photosmart 3210.

  • Lightroom told me that my serial number is invalid and won't let me use the product.  I have the correct serial number.

    I had to reinstall the operating system of my computer and reinstall Lightroom.  I enter the serial number that I pulled the web on the Adobe site (also checked it w / enamel from Adobe), but he said that my serial number is not valid.  I have a delivery time of some images tomorrow and I can't use the software.  Waiting for a response, Adobe and nothing happens to them.  What can I do?

    Use Google and search for downloads of Adobe Lightroom update. Then, go to the Adobe download site and download the latest version of the RL, serial number, you have.

    Adobe has done it's very hard. They are always pointing you the creative Cloud version and you need the Stand alone version.

    Here is the link.
