Photoshop :: "assertion Failed" Message When Opening ImageReady
Oct 6, 2003
All of a sudden my ImageReady won't open and instead I get this "Could not fully start the application because an assertion has failed" message. I have tried reinstalling photoshop, but no luck. Can anyone help me with this?
was working on a grapic in photoshop 7. The slice tool in PS had the 2 option "slice tool" and "slice select tool" but when i move into image ready from my current work and wanted to combine 2 slices, i only had the "slice tool" in my tools area.
The "slice select tool" which needs to be active to complete my action, is missing. pls help.. I tried resetting my tools but still no sign. The biggest question is how come it shows up in PS and not in imageready?
I want to place a photo on a webpage (PSing the whole page I'd guess is the best way to do this), at an angle. I've tried to take the pic to Imageready and create a hotspot, but it seems you can only do "straight" slices?
I really would prefer NOT having a big square or rectangle around the graphic, is there a way to do this, in Imageready?
I am getting the following message when I open PS:
You currently have Adobe Photoshop's primary Scatch and Window primary paging file on the same volume, which can result in reduced performance. It is recommended that you set Adobe Photoshop's primary Scratch volume to be on a different volume, preferaby on a different drive.
Ive been using CS3 for ages, and have just gone on to CS4. I finally worked out how to open a new document and "float all in windows" (from the arrange documents box on the tool bar. However, I have to select it from the box for every new photo I open. Is there a way of telling it to open each new photo in "Float all in windows" automatically?
I have a picture of a cabin on a lake, I want to use this as the flash intro for a website. I would like a mist to cover the picture and then float away, and the water in the lake to "shimmer" or make it look as if it is "moving"...kind of like you were looking at a video clip, not a static picture.
Is this something I would do in any of the creative suite programs? or studio 8 programs? or is it something completely different.
At work, whenever I "save as" a jpg or tif or whatever, it just renames the extension. eg. 'Work.psd' -> 'Work.jpg'. But when I work from home, whenever I "save as" it appends "copy" to the end, which I really hate. eg. 'Work.psd' -> 'Work copy.jpg'. I know this is a trivial matter, but it puts an annoying kink in my workflow having to remove "copy" from the file name during my extremly frequent saves. I've tried to google this, but I'm at wit's end trying to find where the preference is hidden.
when I try to open an existing file or create a new one -- the application will shut down unexpectedly and without warning.But I also experience application errors: 'Instruction at "0x1a3c4b6b" referenced at memory "0x00000028" Memory could not be read.
I have Vista Home Premium, 32 bit. I've downloaded the trial version of Photoshop CS4 (I'm a first-time user of this program), but on opening it I always receive an 'Owl Orphanage' message (in Italian; I have the Italian version of Vista) telling me that it is impossible to find the file M2000Twn.dll. Photoshop nevertheless opens, but this message is annoying. Is there any way to stop it from appearing. I've done a search, and the driver M2000Twn.dll is in fact present on my computer.
I installed a clean, fresh version on my Mac. (No previous versions were ever installed). When I open Photoshop for the first time, everything runs fine: I can open files and edit as usual. As soon as I close it and re-open many things happen:
a) I can go to open a file, but with Window>Application Frame unchecked, I cannot see the open file. b) All other palletes go awry. I cannot change the open palletes and or edit anything. c) If I check Window>Application Frame, everything is back to normal. No problems here.

I've recently become aware that other people are getting an error message when opening many of my my psd files if they are on earlier versions of PS and also on PSE, (including the latest version). The message is:
This document contains unknown data which will be discarded to keep layers editable. To preserve the original appearance instead, choose flatten to load composite data as a flattened image.
Three options follow: Flatten Cancel Keep Layers
When 'keep layers' is selected the file opens as normal. However, people with much earlier version (CS version 8) don't get the option to keep layers, and the layers are flattened when the document is opened.
I still have CS5 on my mac, and I find that if I take my finished file into CS5 and save it there, the customer does not get the message above, and the file behaves as it should. Those on very early version of PS can also open the files without any issues.
I've been using CS6 since it was released and have had to delve through all my files and save them in CS5. Not every file is affected and I've been unable to find a common thread.
I was making a web layout in Photoshop to use in Dreamweaver. (It is really just for a test to see how dreamweaver works...) Well, I had everything in the web layout sliced up correctly and when I tried to "save for web" it gave me this message...
''Could not complete this operation because an assertion has failed''
I'm created a photo of an alien boy being beamed down to someone's house in a cone of bright white light from a flying saucer, and I tried to use the "layer style" to create the glowing light effect in this cone of bright light - but somehow I'm not getting the "glow" effect that I got before. I'm stumped as to what I'm doing wrong/not doing right to produce the glow effect. In other words, the outer/inner glow effect no longer works. Can anyone please help me?
I've got a couple of actions that do various things and then as a last step do a "save as" (without a dialog). They work just fine on MOST images but on just a couple of images when they get to the "save as" step I get a dialog and the "as a copy" box is checked. It happens on the same images every time so it must be something about those particular images but I can't figure out what it is.
I am wondering if it is possible to have a message (note) appear upon the opening of a file? I would like to write notes about the files we are working with, so that succeeding users don't alter information parameters mistakenly, or get confused about the orientaion of a component, etc. etc. etc.
I have run LR 3 for some time and it has worked well. I have been away and when I now wish to run the program I get an error from Microsoft C++ runtime library saying that the program has requested to terminate in an unusual way. Re-installing LR has not solved the problem
