Greetings
I've just started using the adjustment brush (No idea why it has taken me so very long...!)

I understand the principles, and have been testing the results (fine!), but am having difficulty erasing areas accidentally brushed. I have tried the various ways of erasing (selecting erase / using Alt), but the highlighted brush/mask just won't budge. I only have one mask. I have tried brushing and erasing with Auto mask on and off but get the same (non) result.

I am sure it's simple... any ideas please?

Many thanks
Sashina
 
Check settings like density and flow. If these are very low, it will take multiple brush strokes to build up the effect.
 
Here's a screenshot... hopefully my error will be obvious?! (I added even more pink... didn't start out quite so drastic!)
Thanks

Sorry - that was just the setting when I went back in. I have chosen the eraser, and also tried using Alt+brush.
 
Hi Johan
I've just got it to work... I think I didn't realise that the flow settings for add and erase were separate.
Fixed.
Cheers
