Issue with Color Fills and Multiply?

Posted By

I use Photoshop 7.0, and yesterday I started having an issue with Color Fills.

(You may actually have to Say I have a black-and white lineart on the background layer, such as this <>. I double-click on the background layer to make it edit-able.
I click on the Color Fill button, choose solid color, then pick any color (say we use bright red). I go back to the lineart, move the Color Fill layer to underneath the lineart layer, and fill the Color Fill with black. Normally, it would just create white, however for me it has pink/light red. The same thing also happens for patterns and gradients; it leaves a very faded version of the color on the picture.

I didn’t change any options or settings, however my little brother was playing around with Photoshop, and he may have changed something. Can anyone tell me how to get it so that there is no pink or faded color there?

Thanks in advance.

One quick way to fix this is to hold down crtl-alt-shift while Photoshop starts up, and reset your prefs to their factory defaults. This will not lose any of your work.

The other way is to look through your various settings. Top of the list is whether your new files are being created in RGB or CMYK mode. It should be RGB.
