Photoshop CC 2020 error - warning!

Post by Jetnoise »

A word of warning for those using Photoshop Creative Cloud 2020 - the new version (out yesterday V21.1.0) has a serious bug in that various tools (lasso, marquee, clone stamp, smudge/blur, healing brush etc.) create an additional area of change that has nothing to do with the area you are selecting/editing and can totally ruin the area of the picture to the upper left of your working area (depending on what tool you are using). If you have not yet updated - don't! Wait for a fix (presumably a 21.1.1)

If you have upgraded to this version, Adobe are suggesting you revert to the previous, but doing so will wipe out all your presets, actions, special brushes etc.

Example of the problem (using lasso tool)....

Example when using the Smudge tool (three separate areas of editing to show the effect of the error)...

Are you sure you have not missed something?

I tried a selection and a close stamp into that collection and nothing happened to anything other than inside the selection.

No, it is a widely reported error impacting (I believe) all W7 users and some W10 users my W10 laptop installation is fine but my home PC (W7) is not. Adobe say that the workaround is to revert to the previous version 21.0.3 whilst they work on a fix - but no timeline as to when the fix will be available.

I'm not familiar with this W7 and W10 terminology.

Is this Windows 7 and Windows 10?

All,

Photoshop 21.1.1 has just been released and, from my quick and dirty testing, the issues that I (and others) highlighted back in February seem to have been fixed :-)
