Issues with colorpicking shades of gray and brush not working.

Hello, I'm new to paint.net and have come across an issue; whenever I try to use the colorpicker on a shade of gray it simply shows a checker pattern fading to darkness upwards, and it won't let me use the brush for any color regardless of what is selected. Could anyone diagnose the issue? Thank you.

Hi @Raillife3001 Welcome to the forum.


If I understand you correctly, it sounds like you are color picking a transparent pixel. If you have that as your primary color, you won't see any difference when you use the brush. Ensure you are not on a transparent layer when you use the color picker. 

Change your primary color to red, paint a blob, change your primary color to black, then use the color picker on the red to see how it works.

I'm sure you'll figure it out.

Hope this helps :)
