I'll be away for most of Thursday (Aussie time) (approx Wednesday evening USA time). So sorry about the short notice.  I'll catch up on all posts when I get back.  Damien.

I am trying to replace some background with a solid colour to then add a gradient layer.  The solid colour is not showing as a solid colour at 100% opacity, I can still see the background under the colour fill layer.  I don't know what is happening as I have never had this problem before. Even if I use a gradient at 100% opacity the background is still transparent.

I have a PC desktop running windows 10 and Photoshop cc. It is over 2 years old, and has 14GB of RAM. Its hard drive has 383GB free out of 476GB. The last time I shut down was last night. I run a cleanup program about once a week.

 

I added more Ram a few years ago

yes everything is at 100% and normal blend mode

More importantly, if you use the first layer, and fill its mask with black, then try painting on it again, does it work?

Content aware is not working to extend the background.   I also tried to copy and paste the back ground and could not get it to blend correctly.

The gradient is doing the same thing as the colour fill so I was trying to fill with colour then add a gradient, which has made the mask now non transparent.

No, only fixed if I add another layer of colour fill or gradient on top of the first.  The first mask is still like the image above.

Okay .... but if you delete all the layers and start anew, it's ok?

There should NOT be a solid color layer involved in this task in any way.

No, Still the issue with gradient or colour fill.  But together I get a solid fill.   I have no other work around until I know what is causing the issue I have. the only option I see is to reload Photoshop but I don't want to loose any of my brushes or actions I have

Please open another photo (any random photo will do) and see if the problem also repeats itself there.
