Check the opacity and the flow. If those are both at 100%, check the opacity and mode of the layer you are working on. Make sure that the opacity for the layer is 100%, and the mode is Normal.

Photoshop Question – Burn Tool?

This is kinda hard to explain. I’ve been using Adobe Photoshop CS3 for about a year now and I do a lot of Graphic art on it for school (comic art, manga etc) Anyway; when drawing clothes or skin-shadows need to be used and i find the Burn tool comes in handy for this. The only thing is; when trying to create the right pattern with the brush; it will darken sections of my picture that have already been..’burnt’.

When using the regular brush tool-if i set the opacity lower; i can color a whole picture and go over the same spot without it darkening as long as i don’t take my mouse off the page-i was wondering whether anything like this would be possible with the burn tool.

I’ve tried selecting the part of the pic i want to burn and then going over it with a large burn brush but then the edges arent blurred enough-even if i use the blur tool…does this make ANY sense? and can anyone help me???

Basically; i want to be able to use the burn tool anywhere on a pic and not have it darken previously burnt sections as long as I havent removed the mouse from the pic since burning that section.
