  2. i can’t use the repousse tool, it’s not black like the other ps tools …. can someone tell me why please? :/

    • Hi Christa,
      Sorry for the delay in responding, the comment section of the site had an issue.

      I’m not sure what you mean about the tool not being black.
      Do you mean that the cursor/s are odd?

      Maybe something changed with your system settings?

  3. hi ken! did christa manage to solve his problem? i think i may have something familiar

  4. i too have that repousse gray out problem i saw a vid on youtube that it has to do with the video card. issit?
