Top 10 Bugs in Adobe Photoshop CC

If you are using the latest version of Adobe Photoshop CC, you might have noticed a few bugs. However, if you have not updated yet, we recommend you to be aware of the latest version of Adobe Photoshop CC problems. In this article, we have discussed the most common flaws in the latest release of Photoshop and the ways to fix these issues. Take a look!

App Crashes on Using Lighting FX

When you upgrade from an earlier version to the latest Adobe Photoshop CC 2019, the app crashes while opening a file from Home screen and then using Lighting FX filter.

The software manufacturer has fixed this issue in the November 2018 release of Adobe Photoshop CC. However, you can fix this by deleting the Preferences file from Settings.   

Disabled Menus, commands and keyboard shortcuts

When you try to edit a photo opened from Lightroom Classic in Adobe Photoshop CC 2019, you face several issues. You may find menus and commands disabled. Also, the keyboard shortcuts do not work in this scenario. To fix this problem, end both Lightroom Classic and Abode Photoshop.

Run Adobe Photoshop first and then open Lightroom Classic and open the photo for editing. You can also solve these issues by disabling the Home screen in Photoshop CC.

On-Canvas Controls Not Visible

When you open a non-RGB document, the on-canvas controls for tools do not appear on the canvas. To fix this first, open an RGB document when you launch Photoshop.

The on-canvas controls for tools will work accurately on all the documents in rest of the session even on non-RGB documents. Repeat this process every time you launch Photoshop.

Incorrect color in layer blend mode

If you are not getting exact colors in layer blend modes, you are not alone. The only way to solve this problem is to install the Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 v20.0.1 update. If this update also does not work, turn on Legacy Compositing by going to Preferences and then Performance.

Flaws in Sampling Area

The sampling area does not appear fully with all its images in the preview panel of the Content-Aware Fill workspace. As the previous bug, you can also fix this problem by turning on Legacy compositing.

Moreover, the latest Adobe Photoshop version provides incorrect sampling area when the Sampling brush is used in Add mode to add to the sampling area. You can manually modify the sampling area to the needed areas by using the sampling brush tool.

Export file in SVG

When you export file in the SVG format, the background layer of the photo remains invisible in the output photos.

To fix this first, unlock the background layer or create a duplicate layer of the Background layer and then export in the SVG format.

Unexpected Black Pixels on image

When you use Liquify filter on an image, the unwanted black pixels appear on the image.

This happens when you use graphic cards or specific MAC hardware in macOS 10.14 Mojave.

To get rid of these black pixels, turn off the GPU. Go to Preferences and Performance and deselect Use Graphics Processor.

Transformation of layers

When you transform a layer by dragging it through a corner handle, it transforms the layer proportionally even if Maintain Aspect Ratio is turned off.

For layer transformation in non-proportional ratio, hold the Shift key while dragging the layer.

Moreover, when you switch from Photoshop to another app during free transformation mode, the transformation mode ends on coming back to Photoshop.

It also makes menu items dimmed and editing disabled. You can solve this issue by clicking another app again and then coming back to Photoshop.

Type Tool

When typing in Grayscale, Lab and CMYK documents, the I-beam pointer and the text selection disappears on using the Type Tool.

To solve this bug, you need to turn off the GPU by selecting Use Graphics Processor in Preferences and Performance. You can also open an RGB image. It will make I-beam pointer appear in non-RGB documents as well.

View Previous State

After applying adjustments to a photo in Adobe Photoshop, you remain unable to see the previous state of the photo on clicking on View Previous State.

To solve this bug, turn on the Legacy Compositing from performance preferences.
