While painting in Photoshop suddenly I could only paint darker colors than the one painted below. For example if I paint a large area of blue and try to use white to highlight, the white won't show up. If I use black for shadows it shows up just fine. Please help.

    Could be a million things. Off-hand, check blending modes for layers and tools. (Brushes can use their own blending modes separate form a layer's blending mode) – Scott Mar 15 at 2:54
