Photoshop CS4 isn't working

Q: Photoshop CS4 isn't working


My brother recently installed CS4 on my computer, a HP Pavillion HDX, but I have a problem whenever I open photoshop on it. The photos look tiled and have lines all over them.

Here's a screenshot


I'm not too sure what sub forum this goes on, so I am putting it on this one as I am running Vista service pack 2.

Preferred Solution: Photoshop CS4 isn't 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.)

A: Photoshop CS4 isn't working

Are you able to view the pictures with Windows Photo Gallery. If so ,this would rule out any problem with the .jpg file.

The only other thing would be a botched install. You could try to uninstall then reinstall. To uninstall go to <control panel/programs/uninstall program/Adobe Photoshop CS4>. You simply click on the setup.exe file in the zip folder to reinstall.

If all else fails, here is an Adobe Photoshop forum: http://forums.adobe.com/index.jspa

I have Photoshop Cs5 x32 and x64 installed, but x64 has stopped working, while x32 runs fine.

I actually only use x64, so I have a problem - can you please help.

I have many "actions" and "presets" installed, so re-installing the program would be a last resort.This is the message I get:

Recently while I am working with Photoshop (CS4 64-bit) the window appears saying "Photoshop has stopped working". Once the program crashes I can't re-open it because the same "stopped working" windows appears on start-up. I haven't been using any other software but the same problem twice appeared with MS Word.
I bought computer 2 weeks ago so I don't want to re-install Windows after such short time.

This problem seems to appear after I installed Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. I tried to uninstall Wacom drivers and install older ones but it didn't seem to have effect or I didn't uninstall all Wacom drivers. I is hard to say coz Device manager often doesn't show all Wacom drivers installed.

Do you have any suggestions to this problem?

A:Photoshop CS4 stopped working

If this problem is happening with Word and now CS4 that's an indication with an impending problem with the system. If the system is still under warranty you might have the service department look it over.

By the way what version of Word are you using?

Also can you provide us some system specs?

So I finally get my new computer in, which is running on my new 64-bit Vista. I install my favorite program, Photoshop CS3, and decide to try it out a bit. It works just fine. Then I decide to install my tablet which comes included with all my photoshop plug-ins.

This is where everything gets awesome. As I'm starting back up Photoshop I get hit with this.

If you notice, it freezes right as the plug-ins are being put in. I found out that the life-ruining box invading my startup is called DEP. So I tried to disable it going through the command prompt. Everything happened the way it was supposed to happen. I got some sort of success message, and when I checked the DEP status it said that it was disabled. So I try to start up photoshop again. Still, it pops up. I restart my computer after disabling it again. Still, it pops up. If I'm about to hear that I can't use Photoshop with plug-ins because of this 64-bit crap, I'll send my computer back right now.

Is there anything I can possibly do to get this to work?

Hello CouldBeJesus,

Welcome to the forums.

You can disable DEP for a particular program by going to the start menu/control panel (classic view). Click on 'advanced system settings'. Under 'Performance' click settings. 'Data Execution Prevention' tab. There is a warning in the help files that this 'could' allow a virus to enter the computer through the program. It also suggests looking for an update to your program before disabling. Hope it works.

Windows forced an upgrade to 10 this afternoon and suddenly I'm unable to use Photoshop 5.5. (Yes, I know it's an old program but it had no issues in Windows 8.1) The program will simply not open.

I can't afford a new version of PS, the one I have fits my needs, and I'm bordering on furious that it's not working due to this upgrade I did not want.

Is there any way to get to the program to work in 10? If not, I want to know how I can roll back to my previous version of Windows since I am incredibly unhappy with the OS so far.

I have a Pentium 4 3Ghz with 1 MB ram running XP SP2.

I had loaded Adobe Photoshop 5.0 from an original CD a few months ago. It used to
work well. As of a few week's ago, it does not work. It shows a message "Unable
to load PSUT9532.dll Photoshp will not be able to support 16bit plu-ins. Continue
launching Y/N? If I tried to continue, it puts up a blank window and frees. The
strange thing is psut9532.dll exists in the program files/ adobe photoshop directory.

I uninstalled the program. When I used the CD now to re-install, it does not work.
The set-up.exe does not run at all.

The issue is repeatable on two computers I have that run XP. One other computer
I have with Windows ME, adobe photoshop 5.0 runs fine and the set-up CD loads fine

My theory is that there was an recent update to XP lately that caused this incompatibility?
Out of ideas and confused! I would like to photo editing back without spending a
lot for an upgrade.

A:PhotoShop 5.0 stopped working with XP

I would download a good copy of the DLL and replace all instances of it on your computer after a full search. Keep the old ones in the recycle bin so you at least can trace where they came from and restore them if other programs have problems. There are many sites like this: http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/P/Psut9532.dll/3.0.42/download.html

Windows has a sharing system for utility files like DLLs. It should be a simple matter of the first program that installs a particular file being the only repository and other programs share that one. It never seems to work exactly as I anticipate. Photoshop may or may not be using the one in the folder. And that DLL might or might not have been removed and reloaded when you uninstalled and reinstalled the program. Another approach is to uninstall, remove the Photoshop folder and then reinstall. That will probably put a good version of the DLL on the computer.

It would also seem that a DLL starting with ps would be used only for Photoshop. That is probably true but you can&#8217;t count on that either. Search didn&#8217;t&#8217; find it on my C drive at all, so CS must be using a different method of running 16 bit.

I have uninstalled Photoshop and tried to reinstall it but still have the same issue.

1.Have you tried using one of your System Restore points PRIOR to your current problem occurring?

2.Have you checked in Event Viewer?

To check for problems you need to do the following.

Type eventvwr in search and go to the windows log>application tab.
Look for errors that have red in the left hand column that say anything relating to the CURRENT problem.
When you find any make a screenshot and upload them to us.

From your description of which programs won't open, you didn't include Adobe. However, you're getting an Adobe error message. Or, are you saying this happens when you try to launch Adobe?

Hello everyone, and thanks in advance.

Using Photoshop 7.01 for Windows, I cannot do now what I have done hundreds of times before: add Type to an image.

Old images with type can be edited with no problem. But with all new files created, the type does not appear on the image. (I have been in the RGB mode).

The only possible cause of the problem (that I can think of) is that I have been using InDesign recently, and perhaps (in InDesign) I have changed the color mode in repsonse to a dialogue box.

I'm perplexed and anxious-- I need my Type Tool to work!.

Suggestions deeply appreciated.


A:Photoshop 7 -- Type Tool Stopped Working

Iíve never had InDesign mess with my PS settings.

In the toolbar are the little boxes arranged with the black box upper left and the white box lower right? Or is the type color you have selected in the upper left box. If the white is in the upper left you print white. The two tiny boxes below and to the left will switch it back if you just want black and white. The double arrows above and to the right will swap the background and foreground.

I hope it is as simple as that.

I installed Photoshop CS5 last week and began my tutorials on Adobe to learn how to access all the 'What's New' featues in Photoshop CS5. It didn't take long to realize these functions were not available to me. The short-cuts don't work or the options are grayed out.
I have contacted NVIDIA, Adobe, and NAPP Help Desk (as I am a member of NAPP) with no results in solving my problem.

The video card I have is on the approved list with Adobe and everyone at Adobe and NAPP says it should work and access all features in Photoshop. NVIDIA SAYS I NEED A QUADRO FX 1800 video cared. NAPP people say "NO". I don't need that expensive a card.

SO, To the best of my ablity, here is the information you may need to assist/help me. I sure hope someone out there can help.

I may need to upgrade my current video card, NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT (with latest updated drivers) to MAXAMIZE all functions of Photoshop CS5 without overkill.

My OS is:
Windows XP Home Edition SP3 32 bit
Intel (R) Core (TM)2 Duo CPU
E6850 @ 3.00GHz
3.00 GHz

I believe the video card I have is not allowing me to access any of the new features in Photoshop. (With or without OpenGL feature checked or unchecked) They are either grayed out or the short cuts donít work. I need you to advise me if this line of thinking is correct. The tools I have tried and canít access are:

Okay, I don't know how this happened. One second it's working fine, the next, I get this error. I go to preview my image in the browser, so I click "Save for Web." The "Save for Web" screen comes up, along with all the options for things that I can adjust. Then I go to click the Internet Explorer "e" button to get the actual preview, and I get this error message that says: "The operation could not be completed because a file by that name already exists."

I have no idea what that has to do with me previewing a file. I've always been able to preview images in the browser, but now it's giving me this error. I tried re-installing PS7, but it doesn't change the problem. I've also refreshed my PS7 prefs file. I honestly have no idea why this is happening, as I said it was working just fine one second, then the next, this happened. If anyone has ever experienced this problem, or knows how to correct it, please let me know!

Hey all, thanks ahead of time for taking a look!

I've had this problem with Adobe Photoshop Extended (CS4 Version 11.0) and Microsoft Paint for about a month now. Anytime I try to "save" or "save as" with either of these programs, Vista produces the "[Photoshop or Paint] has stopped working - Windows is checking for a solution" error. It then, after maybe 15 seconds or so, says "[Photoshop or Paint] has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

This happens when I try to save ANYTHING on either of these programs, but it is restricted to only these two programs. Everything else, including all Microsoft Office software and even irfanview, which is another image editing software, work flawlessly. I do not believe that I downloaded any software prior to this problem. I've searched all over the internet for a solution but I can only find people having trouble saving as JPGs, but I cannot save at all with these programs, normally I can find someone who has solved the same problem and I follow their steps but this has absolutely stumped me. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!

I know that some of these have no correlation to the actual issue, but I figured it's worth a shot. Here's all that I've tried to fix it -

My dad and I recently just about completely overhauled my computer; installed the OS from scratch and replaced the motherboard (actually, I think everything got replaced except for a hard drive, but I'm not sure).

But I installed Photoshop 7.0 (from the same CD as I installed it on my other machine) and it's doing weird things. I don't get any error messages or anything, but the color display is wrong. Such as the color picker and every color image (amusing as it would be for Legolas to be green, seeing as he is an elf, that picture is simply not supposed to be that way). Note how Blue hills.jpg is PINK. Yeah. I have NOT messed with any of the color settings - it's all at default, and it's doing this.

Also, when I try to install the 7.0.1 update, it will find the folder that Photoshop 7.0 is in, yet when I click "Next" for it to actually install, it says, "The Adobe Photoshop 7.0.1 Update program cannot find Adobe Photoshop 7.0 in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\ -- Please attempt to locate Adobe Photoshop 7.0 again or cancel the update and install Adobe Photoshop 7.0 from the original disks or CD."

A:BSOD/Crashes while working on photoshop/surfing on Firefox/Idling

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hi, I have a Lenovo W530 on which I reinstalled Windows 7 and lenovo softwares and drivers from scratch. Everything works well but for a very annoying detail: The ctrl+shift+s photoshop keyboard shortcut is not longer responding. It was working just before I did the re-install of Windows with the same photoshop installation package I have tried the following without success:- Installing Windows 10 and all the drivers/software and Photoshop (Decided I didn't like it as my PC was running 10 degrees celcius hotter)- re-installing the keyboard driver from the lenovo website on my fresh Windows 7 install- Switching fn/ctrl keys in the bios back and forth- Running Windows troubleshooter- There are no failing processes/services/exe in the reliability monitor nor in event viewer What works:- other keyboard shortcuts work well in photoshop- assigning another keyboard shortcut to save as in photoshop allows works Well it is minor, but bugging me!

Ahh, back again for more computer troubles. Apologies if this is in the wrong thread.

So, I'm really confused as to how three things have suddenly stopped working out of the blue. My tablet was working perfectly fine earlier, until I restarted my computer. The driver automatically crashes after start up, even after updating the driver. I have also noticed that Windows Photo Viewer and Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0 also crash as soon as they're started up.

Any idea how I can fix these sudden problems? It's really frustrating that I can't draw, open photos, OR use Photoshop all of a sudden. Nothing was changed as far as I know for them to stop working.

Hi, I recently upgraded my PC from Vista to Windows 7.

The update took a while, but so far it has been well worth it. Photoshop worked just fine on Vista when I used it, and so far it has worked perfectly fine on 7. On the other hand, I am stuck in a spot where I keep crashing it and have not found a work around. Now I am wondering if this is related to Windows 7 or something just specific to Photoshop(I have never got it to crash before).

I am a student taking a Photoshop class, so this isn't some hardcore project or anything. I am following a lesson straight out of Adobe's Photoshop CS4 Classroom in a book, book....

Specifically the lesson 9, where we take a smart object, rasterize it, then apply it to a vanishing point filter. It is on this step where I drag a flat image and Photoshop converts it to appear like it belongs on a box, that Photoshop freezes, and windows makes it close down with no other option.

I know I put some technical stuff about photoshop here and this is a windows forum. I just thought maybe someone here would be knowledgeable on both subjects.

If anyone has some suggestions on ways to fix this please let me know. I know I could just stop doing it, but maybe there are other people who reproduce this error or something.

Thanks, Nick

Hello Nick, and welcome to the forums.

I'm not liking the sounds of the upgrade, possibly remnants of Vista having an effect on your system, but can not be definite on that.

Have you tried reinstalling Photoshop?

How do you unlock a layer?

What I'm trying to do is moving a picture on another layer, over the layer I'm trying to go over (to put it simply: I'm putting a picture inside a web button that I have created).

A:PhotoShop 7 Help

I just duplicate the layer and move it. Layer>Duplicate layer>OK. Then use the move tool in the upper right of the toolbar.

Iím not sure Iím exactly following you but that is how I move stuff from one image to another.

Okay i use to be on XP pro and cs4 would load anything incredibly fast but for some reason now on vista opening a 1920x1200 new document takes it like 5 seconds to render the image which before it was instant here's my specs.

AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ (2 CPUs), ~3.0GHz

GPU: Geforce GTX280 OCX

RAM : 4gb OCZ

HD: 2 velociraptors 300gb set to stripe

Well, I believe vista is slower, and I think that is why many people dislike it. I'm not really sure why its slow and hopefully someone can help. Try maybe disk defragging or scanning for some sort of virus or something, maybe even your ram is being eaten up

I want to create a webpage. Can I use Photoshop Elements or do I have to use Photoshop 7.0


Neither of these programs are for creating websites. Both of these programs are used manipulate images whether that is for editing, fine tuning, or converting.

If you want to make webpages, you will need an editor like Frontpage or Dreamweaver. I prefer dreamweaver, but it is more difficult to use for a basic user.

You can look at the list of shareware/freeware html editors found here:
