Brush tool on CS6 not working with layer masks - behaving like an airbrush
I've been using adjustment layers (curves) and creating a dark / light layer, and then using a brush with opacity of say 30-50% to paint onto the mask to show dark / light in selected areas of an image.
Until yesterday this was working fine. Now however, my brush is appearing pixelated, and scattered about like an airbrush or spray paint. Rather than all the brush being smooth. Even at 100% opacity, not all of the pixels are altered, instead there are clearly visible (when zoomed in) pixels which are lightened / darkened, and some which have been totally unaffected, which leads to a horrible pixelated effect.
Any ideas? Thanks a lot!
I've solved it - thanks, the mode was set to dissolve rather than normal

A screenshot of the Brush panel, Layers panel and the result would be informative. Maybe Noise is enabled in the Brush panel.
