Photoshop CS6 and Illustrator CS6 crash unexpectedly when trying to open a file. I'm on OSX 10.6.8. I installed the software through Creative Cloud. I tried deleting preferences and it still doesn't work. Here is the error details.
2012 LT about a year old, just recently started shutting off/closing unexpectedly during a drawing command (pline, copy, offset etc...) or when using numeric keys on keyboard. seems like everything else works ok. no error messages. nothing. just dissapears.
I am looking to create a collage made from 100 photos (all taken high res) to be printed large, approx 120cm x 50cm. To be able to print this size I need to keep the high resolution and hence looking for a large file output.
When I open Photoshop Elements 10 Editor to edit a text layer on a 511KB 412x292 psd photo the text layer is not shown. How do I open the text layer? How do I edit the text layer? How do I save the finished work product? The background layer is locked. I can't unlock it. I have tried any number of approaches none of which open the text layer for editing.
I know this happens sometimes when a file won't open after saving and closing it. Usually I can open the backup file with just some lost work, but not this time. Problem is this time it happened with a file I spend a long time working on. I tried unzipping and opening riffData.cdr with no luck. I've uploaded the file. It is a complex drawing with over 20 pages including vector and bitmap objects.
I have this project I need to print in a newspaper. It's a PSD in CMYK, 300dpi (20 cm x 32 cm). I was told it need to be a TIFF or a EPS with text layers converted to paths. So I've "turned into shape" every text layer I've had (it's tricky 'couse this way 1 text layer = one font color ... so if I had a block of text with 3 different colors I had to break it into 3 different layers ... anyways) and saved it as a TIFF and EPS. Just to see which one will be better (resemble my original PSD more?).
so after "saving as" TIFF my file grew from 177mb to 208mb and I still had layers and eveything (I've never actually used TIFF files as the main project files). I can preview the file in IrfanView - I understand TIFF still contains all my paths right? (well it should being a 200+ mb file ;))
I then tried the "Save As Photoshop EPS". Now the file is 95mb aaaaaand I cannot open it with any Adobe software. why is that?
Photoshop says: "could not complete your request becouse the parser module cannot parse the file" and Illustrator says: "The operation cannot complete becouse of an unknown error"
By the way - I've always thought that EPS is a paths-only format. It seems it can also contain raster graphics?
I was scanning a roll of drawings on a large format scanner, and I ended up with JPGs that are larger than 30k pixels wide. (I understand this is a limitation PS has)
The issue is, I spent hours scanning all these rules, and now I have a few JPEGs files that are very large (45k x 10k pixels), that I cannot open at all).The JPGs open fine in the windows viewer, so I know they are not corrupt.
If I can find someway to open them, I can then resize them slightly to fit within the limit, or save them as (PSB - Large Format).One of the ideas I had was to find some other software that I can use to open and re-save, or to split the JPGs in 2 or 3 pieces, and then piece them back together in Photoshop.
We are experiencing a problem that inventor goes none responsive when closing large assemblies. Typically the problems occurs on assemblies with typrical over 3000 parts. The only way to get out is to manual crash the program.
Our machines are some of the powerful machines that you purchase on the market with SATA III solid state drives so the problem is not with the machines.
Wish we never upgrade from 2012, Autodesk should be embarrassed with the performance of 2013
Elements11: Trying to make a photo collage, but get the message : "Could not complete your request because the file was not a valid frame file". What does that mean? I follow the instructions given how to make a collage, but it comes to a halt when I try to import the pictures to the collage.
I have two catalogs created in Photoshop Album 3.2 and I downloaded Elements 11 and had no difficulty finding and converting the smaller file, but the function will not display the larger file to be selected for conversion. Is size the problem, and if so, how can I cope?
A client is running CS5. When we run an Action in Photoshop, either directly or through a Batch process, the name of the file changes to an old file name that actually existing in the file structure. It doesn't matter which file we start with, the name changes to this other name during the action. I've checked all the steps of the action to be certain there isn't a Save As command presenet. This has started happening with the past month. The Action has been in use for over a year.
My laptop recently died before I was unable to do a backup of the PSE 9 catalog. I thought I was covered, however, since I do regular backups of my total system. In reviewing the backup data though, I discovered that I had copies of all of my pictures -- but the backup tool that I was using was NOT copying the PSE catalog file. Bottom line, I'm now missing probably 15+ years of catalog information......
Someone has told me that they believe they can pull some information off the damaged disk of the old PC. If this is possible, what file(s) should I ask them to try and recover -- and where would it likely be located?
Windows 7 OSPSE 9Catalog was not backup prior to system crash. I do not recall file structure of where photos were stored -- but I do have back up copies of all pictures (now stored on my new laptop)
Spent 9 hrs creating a slideshow that I saved. Closed PSE 11 and reopened and can no longer find the slideshow. When I select Find, Media type, Project, nothing appears, but there is a gray box in my grid that says "File size too large". Is this my slideshow and if so how can I recover it?
I have a family photo including many text layers. I'm trying to edit the text in a selected large multi-line text layer. I'm following the steps from the appropriate PSE article, but I always end up creating a new layer and the red/green no-go/go option. I thought I should just be able to double-click the text layer and start editing.
I have an open file - we'll call it the 1st file. I will add a background and some other images to it that are located in other psd files. But how? How do I get them in there?
I want to add 2 images, (don't worry about getting into selection and pixels, shadows, edges, etc. the complex stuff is easy LOL) Anyhow, I have another file that I open. How do I get that entire image(or file) into the 1st file - into it's own layer - so I can edit, position, and transform it etc. as I need.
What if there's a 3rd image/file that I want to open and add to yet another layer.
Do I simply select the entire image and copy/paste it? I tried dragging it, knowing that would probably be futile. Anyhow, any and ALL advice on this surely simple procedure would be appreciated.
There are some files with at least 8 files that I want to bring together into one image. Same thing, do I cut and paste them, or is there another way?
All of these are psd files, btw. Would it make a difference if one was different, say a jpeg or tiff etc.
so im painting cars for nr2003 and i got a base scheme with layer sets that i cant open. i can simplify it, but it only flattens the contained layers. im pretty sure it has multiple layers in it. i will leave when i get an answer on how to open them in photoshop elements 2.0.
I installed the new trial version of PSE11 and for some reason the layer panel does not show up automatically and when I try to open it under the windows menu the layers part is greyed out. The entire layers dropdown menu is also entirely grey.
I save a lot of files to "save for web". After saving PS asks if I want to save changes to the original file. I never want to save the changes to the original. Since the default is to change the file I am afraid I will accidentally OK the change without wanting to. I would like it to stop asking and just not save it. Is there a way?
A client has asked me to send a file with the type on a separate layer which he refers to as "vector mapped". I know that I can lay in an AI type layer and save the file as an open .PSD file, or lay it in as a vector smart object and send it as an open TIFF file (along with the original AI file), but the client is using CS2 and can't deal with VSOs. The way around it, of course, is via a layered AI file with a placed image, but what is he referring to with hte term "vector map"?
