    It appears that something has gone amiss....

    I go into quick mask mode (Q), press B for the brush and color away.

    When I return to RGB mode (by pressing Q again) the entire image turns red.

    When attempting to invert the selection, the entire image is selected.

    I'm using Normal mode, 100 opacity and 40% flow. Typically at 50 px.

  2. I cannot reproduce the problem in CS2 or CS3 Jim. Sounds like a reinstall is required.

  3. Hang on, let's check your setup ...

    When you're painting your mask, what colour is it?

    When you double-click on the QM icon, what are the prefs set to? I use "Selected Areas", with a bright green colour at 40-50%.

    I highly recommend setting both your opacity and your flow to 100% when painting masks.
