    Hello. For some odd reason I suddenly lost the ability to use Quick
    Mask mode in full color. The white appears but regardless whether I set
    the mask color to blue or red or whatever only gray appears as the other
    color. This of course means that my selection will only be transparent
    rather than full. Why this has suddenly happened, I don't know. I
    probably accidentally clicked a parameter somehow and since I don't know
    which parameter I chose, I cannot undo it. So, in brief, how can I use
    Quick Mask editing mode so that when I paint a color in it will have
    100% effect, not only partial effect? Thanks for assistance.

    Look at the Quickmask channel. Is it heavily blurred? What kind of
    feather do you have set on your selection tool? Check both on the
    Options Bar and under Select.

    If it's not that try resetting preferences.

    So, in brief, how can I use
    When you use the paintbrush to paint in QuickMask mode, make sure you are
    painting solid black, not gray, and that the brush is set to 100% opacity.

    Thanks for your reply. After fiddling around I finally got the
    black/white
    pair back, instead of gray/white. This never happened before, in
    several
    years of using PS! And I don't know what I did that changed it. I took
    your
    advice about feathering, etc. but that didn't change it. But thanks for
    your
    reply; you got me fiddling with the menu again.
