    Here is my problem. I opened up my Photo Shop CS 8.0. I tried to color in a picture, but when I did, the colors are showing as like a gray scale. They are showing up normal in the color chart where you click a color. But when you try to brush it, they show up gray scale. I opened up Microsoft Paint and it did the same thing. I dont know what I did to change any of this. And I dont know how to change it back.

    Welcome to TSG :)

    Is it doing this with all images or just one your wanting to work on?
    Guess it is because of the color format. Open the image a PS and then change the image format to high color.
    If that is not it then it may be the mode. Go up to image, mode and see what is checked. I think the default is RGB Color so put a check by it if it's not checked.
