I am really just starting out.
I am used to a different more limited paint software package.
So doing simple stuff in Photoshop is new to me.
So, if you will, can you help me with the easy, simple, basic stuff? I have started a tutorial and it tells me to draw a solid green shape. I thought it would be easy. This is how far I got:

When I clicked on the color square it presented me with a dialog box to select a color. I tried everything I could think of but it only gives me shades of gray.

Make sure your image is in RGB mode. You can define this when you create a new image, or edit it in existing images (thought I don't recall what menu it's under).

Can you see the full color spectrum when you try to select a color?

What version of Photoshop do you have? I've worked with 8.0 and Elements 5.0

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
