All I want to do is use brush tool in Photoshop CS !?

Ok, I’ve done this plenty of times before and it was working yesterday.
Simply clicking the eyedropper tool to get the matched color.
Then using “brush tool” to simply “color” or “paint” something out.

For some reason, all it is doing is giving me the brush tool and doesn’t let me “brush”. (Duh Yes, I am clicking the mouse). It’s aggravating me. I went through all settings trying to see if something is set and I can’t find anything wrong.

I have even restarted my computer and closed the image and tried it on other ones. And it is still doing it.
don’t want a new prog thanks. want this one working again.

  1. Photoshop’s preferences file, for whatever reason, is easily corrupted. Whenever Photoshop misbehaves – like when tools won’t change or act up, or if a setting won’t take – try trashing the preferences file before you waste time with other “fixes”.

    How to:

    A: Hold down Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys (Mac: Command, Option, Shift) while starting Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences file.

    A2: You can also simply search your hard drive for a *.psp file and delete it. It will be called something along the lines of “Adobe Photoshop X Prefs.psp”.

    Open and reset your preferences when Pshop starts up.

    If your brushes still do not paint, look to see if you have selected a pressure sensitive brush by mistake. Since you say you are using a mouse to paint, which has no pressure settings, if you have checked – say OPACITY – as being “pressure sensitive” in your brushes pallet, that would cause your problem.

    Also, are you painting on a new layer? The background layer is always LOCKED in CS3.
