  2. 4:37 ➡️ In my Photoshop 2021 the HUD does for some unknown reason no longer show up in that red color. I changed nothing. Except maybe clicking something accidentally I never have been aware of. Catalina 10.15.7, latest 2021 by today, Nov 24th 2020. Restarted Ps, rebooted Mac, nothing helps. Beefy MBP 16, 64 GB RAM, 8 GB VRAM

  3. is there ant way to select a brush stroke that has already been made if you want to adjust it or move it or something along those lines. But just one stroke or a few and not the whole layer?

  4. Sorry but I do not know how to ask you a question so I'm trying it here. New to Ps. Having trouble understanding the correct procedure on how to get my photo(s) into Ps and when I 'Save As", where do the saved images go? Are there videos that cover this "Basic of Basics" information? Thank you in advance for your help, Rick
