    Sounds like you're working in grayscale mode.

      so how do i change back to rgb mode? how did i get to gray mode?

        Your image mode is displayed on the title bar of your working image window.

        As for how you got into GS mode, I don't know exactly. Perhaps your last image was in GS, or you performed a function that converts to GS.

          by Kim
          I've been trying to figure out how to change the dull background of the Photoshop Work Area. Currently it's plain gray (only turn black when I switch it to Full Screen Mode).

          Is it possible to change this background without changing the screen mode to full ?

          LAB versus HSL
