Image on second monitor goes black | Mac OS

Issue

When you drag an image to a second monitor the image goes black.

Solution

When this problem occurs, you launched Photoshop with a single monitor connected prior to connecting to the second monitor.

To solve this issue, quit and restart Photoshop with the second monitor connected.

All future use of Photoshop will correctly recognize the second monitor without this issue – unless you restore your preferences. In that case, repeat the solution steps and quit and restart Photoshop with the second monitor connected.
