Lost my colours

Hello,

Strange thing has happened : my only colours available are now black and white and greys. The swatches abnd pickers are all there but the foreground/background refuses to change to the colours I choose.

Have I done something very silly? I Was working with layer paths and may have stuffed something up. Also, what colour profile should I be working with when starting a new document - I want to paint in colours and use paths etc.

Thanks again to this beaut forum.

Manfred

Sorry. I found out what was wrong. Colour mode was set to Grey scale.

Oops (I'm a newbie)

Cheers
Manfred
