Hi Damo.  I have an edit where all of my levels layers have the RGB drop-down greyed out.  Any idea why it's greyed out?

I have a PC desktop running Windows 10 and Photoshop 6.2. It is over 2 years old, and has 14GB of RAM. Its hard drive has 231GB free out of 79.8GB. The last time I shut down was earlier today. I rarely run a cleanup program.

Can you confirm these two figures.  The first seems unlikely, and the second is obviously impossible.

They are correct as I have my ram updated about 18 months ago and the SSD c  drive is the original. I was a gaming computer

Yep, that makes more sense.

Photoshop 6 is really really old.  Do you mean CS6?

CS5 is version 12, actually.

Huh, weird.  It definitely DOES accept it in the field.  I wonder if this is another related problem?  Have you noticed any other weirdness in your computer behaviour lately?  Any other little things not working that should work?

Also my black and white mask won't work properly. If I have masked on with black and then want to mask off with white the white won't work.  I also can not wake my computer from sleep sometimes.  it is on with the on symbol light on, no activity from the hard drive working. I have had it looked at so many times. no one can get the same issues to play up.

This can happen if the brush tool is accidentally on a blend mode other than "Normal".  Next time this happens, make sure you check that in the Options bar.

I'm so darn nervous about everything you're describing.  I trust you're keeping frequent backups of all your data, in case the worst happens suddenly?
