Tips & Tricks: Photoshop CS5

Symptom: While designing/editing with photoshop color picker is not picking exact color or applying filter effects are not working or similar issues.

Solution: Photoshop is a heavy software, i really don’t know what exactly cause this issue, but i found a quick fix for this, and here it is:

Step 1: Click on the photoshop icon, and immediately press Ctrl + Alt + Shift. (You need to press these keys real quick just before the splash-screen shows-up)

Step 2: If you able to press those keys correctly, then a small window will open (asking “Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings File?”) like this:

Step 3: Click yes and you are done. Enjoy!

What i think is there is some kind of cache or similar thing saved in that settings file, and when it gets corrupted then photoshop make troubles.
