Yellow 'halo' appears when using P/S erase tool

    Can anyone tell me why, when I use a 'soft' Erase tool setting in P/S,
    the faded area has distinct yellowness to it - almost like a halo? I've
    tried everything to get rid of this, but nothing seems to work. It also
    happens if I select a soft Brush tool setting and paint on an image in

    Is it simply a setting I need to change - or something more complex in
    the colour set-up menu?

    Any help would be gratefully received...

    There is a well-known video driver problem that can cause white to turn
    yellow in Photoshop.

    But wouldn't this turn all the white parts of an image yellow? Why
    would it just affect the 'faded' areas?

  4. By any chance, are you erasing on the background layer with your background
    colour set to the offending yellow?

    No, that's what I originally thought was happening. But I checked this
    and there's definitely no yellow - either in the foreground or
    background colours.

  6. I'm pretty sure I know what you mean - I've struck something similar using
    the colour replacement tool. I'm the first to admit that I'm the world's
    worst PS user - but having said that it seems to me that sometimes PS just
    seems to "plain and simply" get some things wrong from time to time.

    Have you tried copying the layer to a new layer - switching off all other
    layers, and trying again with an eraser set to 100% hardness, and
    backgraound and foreground colours set to defaults?
