Preferred Solution: adobe photoshop not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am relatively new to graphic design and imaging, but I have a question regarding my use of Adobe Illustrator CS3 and Adobe Photoshop CS3.

I have designed a logo in Adobe Illustrator CS3, and saved it as both an ".AI" file and an ".EPS" file.

Now, when I open the ".EPS" file in Adobe Photoshop CS3, it appears that the bright cyan (it's a white logo with one of the characters in bright cyan) is duller than what it seemed to be in Adobe Illustrator CS3.

Does anyone know why this would be, and what I can do to stop it?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I use both Adobe Reader 8 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0. Whenever I open a pdf document, it always defaults to the Adobe Photoshop Elements. Is there a way to change the default so it opens with Adobe Reader? Thanks.

A:Adobe Photoshop Elements And Adobe Reader

Navigate to where you store your pdf files.
Right click on one of these files and a dialogue will open inviting you to nominate which prog you wish to open that file.
In that dialogue, scroll down to "choose a program", when that opens,?scroll?to?Adobe?Reader,?click?on?that?and?then?click?on?"always?use?this?program?to?open?this?type?pf?file"

Hello I've just downloaded Adobe photoshop off torrent, as i need it to create a collage for a school project, and i've installed it and it works fine, but I format my computer a lot and I want to burn it onto a CD so I can keep it in case i need it later, but when i burn it, i use Nero and Data CD.... It burns successfully I put it into the drive open it up click the setup file and it runs the setup wizard, but during installation it tells me theres an error Data1.cab is corrupt. Ignore, Abort, or Retry. go to ignore it says internal error n rolls back, abort rolls back and retry does nothing.

I have Windows XP Home Service Pack 2

A:PLEASE!!!!! I need help with Adobe Photoshop 5.5 and 7.0

If you are using the uninstall in Start>Programs or Add/Remove programs it is the same uninstall loaded by the program. If they arenít causing problems other than taking space I would just leave them.

If you could get a demo version of Cleansweep it might be able to uninstall them for you. Or use a trial of one of these:

When I was playing around with Adobe Photoshop, at one point it said I needed to update my graphics card. Should I update it or leave it alone?

A:Adobe Photoshop

I certainly wouldn't upgrade it because of some popup message from Adobe.

I don't even have a graphics card and I've never seen that message when I use Photoshop.

I bought a premade template, made with photoshop.

I have edited it with image ready cs and saved it. All is well with the with the psd. When I reopen the psd file in photoshop all of my changes are there. However, when I open the index.html in this same template, no changes have been made.

In image ready, I go to file>update HTML. It goes about halfway, then a pop-up appears that says "No tables were updated"

The folder structure for this template is as follows:


In the html folder: images,index.html

My question is this, how do I get image ready to update the new images in the index.html file?

Question #2: How do I make photoshop write new html file (aboutus.html) from a psd file I made for this site?

Thank you very much

A:Adobe photoshop cs

This may work for question #1
Go to Edit\Preferences\File Handling and may sure that Maximize PSD File Compatibility is in Always.
Now for question #2
Photoshop does not write html, only Image Ready. Now, open your template in Image ready and change what you need to change, then save as or save optimized as, choose in the next window, image and html and it should work.
Hope this help Millergroup.

I can't figure out how to create a picture without it being a box. Basically lets say I want to draw a basketball, I create a new image which is a square and draw a circle inside of it. What do I do to crop everything but the circle and have that be the image?

Also, how do I create pictures which have a blue shade to them only? If you look at website online, you see these picture which are kind of like black and white pics but it is done with blue and white? How do I create that effect?
Thank you,

A:adobe photoshop 7

BAsically you cannot have a round picture. The background can be transparent but the image will be bound to a set number pf pixels high and wide. There are many filters and presets that can give you pretty much any effect you want to get. If you want an easy way go to Image > adjustments and click hue and saturation. Click the colorize checkbox and move the top slider to get the color you want and adjust the lower ones for brightness, etc.

Hello All,

I have a question regarding Adobe Photoshop CS4. I am fairly new to this whole photo editing stuff!!

At the moment i'm just getting to grips with it, but what i'm looking to do is edit some pictures. Now i can change faces from scenes and put other faces over them and make it look as real as I can.

The difficulty comes when i want to say use a dfferent picture i.e. the colours aren't the same for instance the face i want to use is green (shrek) and the picture i want to put the face on is well normal facial colours, i can select the face from the shrek picture and put it on the photo but I don't know where to start to blend it and make it look 'real'

If anyone can give me any pointers then that would be great or if you know of any good site with that kind of thing on them.

Thank you for any help on this subject. If this isn't clear then please tell me and i'll try to help

How does one set up to print a single image file on 8-1/2 x 11 paper in selected multiple sizes, such as, 2 at 3x5, 2 at 2x3 and the rest at a size that will fill the remaining unused paper? Jerry

A:Adobe Photoshop 6


I have PS7 but it's probably much the same..

The basics...Open a new file 8.5x11 then open the image you want to print...

resize the image to 3x5 then select all and paste into the new canvas...do this twice or however many you want or will fit...then resize the image to 2x3 and repeat...as you paste you can position them where you want with the mover tool....when you have them where you want on the layer menu flatten the image and print

If that seems like a pain have a look at this free little program for
printing multiples...It works great

My Adobe Photoshop CS5 will not open up in windows 07. I chatted with a tech and he wanted to charge me $300. The problem I am having is an error message comes up saying "unexpected/unretrievable problem". Since chatting with the tech, he told me I have a corrupted/faulty application path with Adobe Photoshop. Beforehand, I had a virus in my laptop, and a relative who has knowledge in computers cleaned it up with Malware. The tech told me that Malware is not good. Should I unstall it? Can my problem be fixed in Adobe Photoshop? I'm a student at a local community college and this really sucks cause I need this fixed so I can continue doing my work for my photoshop class. Please help!!

Welcome to the TSG forum.

Just a quick guess ... Try this
1. First, hold down all three Ctrl+Alt+Shift buttons
2. Now "while keeping those button held," simply open Photoshop or a file that opens with Photoshop
3. As Photoshop loads, you should get a prompt asking if you would like to "delete the Photoshop settings file", Click yes

You should now have a fresh slate with all of the settings returned to their default.

Are you capable of reinstalling Windows ..
That's the only way I know to be sure a virus has been completely removed and the damages repaired.

I am looking to purchase Adobe Photoshop, but there are so many different kinds it has me confused. Elements 4, Elements 5.0, CS2, CS3, CS3 extended, 7.0 etc. I want to spend around $150. Preferably one that can do action sequences.

A:Adobe PhotoShop

You can probably forget about getting any version of Photoshop for $150 legally. Elements doesn’t come with Image Ready but there are some animation tools in the “save for web” area. Elements is a good program and in your price range. The latest version is 5.

If you are interested in animation I would suggest this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ULEAD-PHOTO-IMP...ryZ41880QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Ulead sells Gif Animator 5 alone for $50 and it is included. Gif Animator 5 is the latest version but has been around a while. PhotoImpact 11 is one back but the latest version 12 isn’t that much improved.

Photoimpact is a good editor. It has two interfaces. One for advanced users and one for those not so advanced. It is reportedly a little less intimidating to get started with. Gif Animator 5 is well liked.

I am a long time Photoshop fan and Photoshop heavy user. I really don't know why Adobe is killing it's own software: Photoshop will now be subscription based + the newer versions will work on tablets only which means they have to be lighter and more watered down than the PC versions which need a lot of hardware oomph that tablets don't have. So far Photoshop has been used by a select few who are interested enough to learn it and who have the right hardware to operate it, it looks like they want to make it assessable to everyone. I read a while back that Adobe has stopped developing Flash for mobile devices, the author of the article said that this spelled the death of Flash because Adobe's next step will be stopping development of flash for PCs which is the actual end of flash

We are using windows Xp pro and are making a huge Murial,,,The file size is causing the program to drag. Is there a way to split this file into smaller parts and continue the work then reassmble the split parts later. I will need step by step as I have never worked with this program before.

A:Adobe photoshop 7.0

First set Photoshop to take a higher percentage of your RAM. Keep in mind that it isnít a percentage of the total RAM but just of what isnít being used when you open Photoshop. Edit>Preferences>Memory and image cache.

Set it to about 85%. Close Photoshop and then close everything running on the computer you donít really need while working with the mural. Open Photoshop and you will have a lot more RAM available.

Use the crop tool to crop the first third of the image plus a little. ďSave asĒ Crop #1. Go back in the history and revive the full image and crop out the center third plus a very little overlap on each side. Save as Crop 2. Do the last third the same way.

When you are finished File>New and make it big enough in pixels to hold the entire mural. Pull the pieces using the move tool into the new file and align everything. Layer>Flatten Image.

Hello software experts,

My PC's OS is Windows 2000 Professional and is installed with Adobe Photoshop 7.0. It has been running okay, until recently. What happened was that [my PC also has Norton Antivirus] I was connected to the Internet and Norton Antivirus needed to run the LiveUpdate on the latest anti-virus definitions, and while it was downloading the definitions, I was also using Photoshop to fix some images.

After the update [by then, I closed Photoshop], disconnected from the internet; later opened Photoshop again, then came the problem.

Photoshop opened its opening screen as usual, i.e. initializing, fonts,...,etc, but then it would simply close without even opening the software.

I've tried removing/uninstalling it, then installing it, it didn't improve anything. In my second try of uninstalling, I'd even removed the shared files, then installing a fresh copy, still it didn't work.

Please look it to the problem for me and send me some advice on how might I be able to solve it. I'd really appreciate your help.



A:Adobe Photoshop 7.0


Have you tried closing down Norton, just to see if Photoshop will run? If still no joy, it may be some other conflicts.

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
