[SOLVED] Cannot Save in Photoshop or Paint (Has Stopped Working)

Q: [SOLVED] Cannot Save in Photoshop or Paint (Has Stopped Working)

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 -
-Reinstalled Photoshop
-Complete System Virus Scan via ESET NOD32 4.0.437.0
-Complete System Virus Scan via AVAST Pro Antivirus 100305-0
-Disk Check via Command Prompt
-Updated NVIDIA GeForce GT120 Graphics Driver
-Complete Registry Clean via Tuneup Utilities 2010
-Registry Defragment via Tuneup Utilities 2010
-Hard drive Defragment via Vista and Tuneup Utilities 2010

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: [SOLVED] Cannot Save in Photoshop or Paint (Has Stopped Working)

You have Avast & ESET both installed?

Remove Avast using Removal Tool --> http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear.exe

Re-boot upon completion.

Update ESET NOD32 installation to v4.2.40.0 --> http://www.eset.com/download

Re-boot.

Test Photoshop, Paint, Word, others again.

System is Athlon 2.2dual, 2gig RAM, Vista Home Premium 32bit. I have been running Paint Shop Pro 8.0 on this system for nearly a year with no problems until a couple of weeks ago.

sometimes when I use a filter in PSP, the program freezes. The workspace turns into a pale, white-ish color & then it gives me a message that says:

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!

Thanks,
Bob

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.

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
also.

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’t count on that either. Search didn’t’ find it on my C drive at all, so CS must be using a different method of running 16 bit.

Hello,
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?

Thanks.

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.

--RB
 

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.

Hi,

I've been searching for most parts of the net and the forums here and did install/uninstall/restore my notepad, paint and wordpad but nothing seems to work.

When these files are opened, nothing seems to be a problem. But whenever you attempt to save by Ctrl+S, or the by clicking File>Save or File>Save As the program automatically closes. This has been a consistent behavior for the 3 softwares.

I'm using Windows XP 64 bit OS and had no error messages of any sort except that these programs just close themselves when a save attempt is done.

I did virus and malware scans by Avast, ESET Nod & Kaspersky and nothing was detected.

Reinstalling isn't an option for me now as I don't have any optical drive... besides, this may be very hard for me but I'm willing to suffer for the sake of learning.

I'd really appreciate your inputs on this matter.
Thanks for all ideas and help ahead!

Interface Lock-in
The interfaces of different raster- and vector-graphics editing applications are similar, but also just slightly different enough, that switching from one to another isn't always easy.

IMO the best thing you can do is to get trial versions of both applications and see what fits you best.

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

i edit pictures with ms paint and wanted to save it as jpg/png but it says save was interrupted and save was aborted..?

i am using an old version of ms paint on window 7 (vista/xp mspaint) and no i dont wish to go try the new mspaint. i donno if this is related to the database but i remembered clearly with acdsee 5 where it wouldnt let me convert image to jpeg format cause it says database is corrupted or missing, donno if this is why paint cant save to other format.

A:MS paint can't save different image format.

Older versions of MS Paint are not compatible with Windows 7.

Paint.Net is very similar but with more optons. Give that a try.

When I open a bmp or jpeg in Paint and try to add colors (text or additions to the picture) on top of it, the only color I get is gray, no matter what color I select. If I pick pink, it's gray.. pick blue, it's gray, etc. I've tried it with maybe 10 different bmps/jpegs. When I open Paint and just paint a colored line, the color comes out fine. I've always been able to layer colors on top of bmps and jpegs, have done this tons of times before. What could be making every color come out as gray?

I've been searching high and low and checking the windows registry but I can't seem to find a way to change the default save file type in Paint. It comes up with BMP as the default but I want JPG to be the default whenever I do a save/save as, so I don't have to change it all the time. Any suggestions?

A:MS Paint default file save type

Here is a work around.

Try this to see if it works for you.

1. Open a blank screen in Paint and save it as a .jpg in the location you want as your default with the name "default.jpg".
2. Right click and drag the Paint program from the Start, Programs,
Accessories location onto the desktop and select copy here.
3. Right click on the Paint icon and then left click Properties. You should see a line like this "%SystemRoot%\system32\mspaint.exe" (without the quotes.)
4. Place the cursor after the .exe and type a space.
5. Type the full path and filename for the default.jpg file you saved (if there is any spaces in the path you need to enclose anything you type in quotes. The final line should look like this

%SystemRoot%\system32\mspaint.exe "C:\this is the path here\default.jpg"

6.click OK.

Double click on the new desktop icon, the file will open and the Save As default location will be where the file is located. If you make the default.jpg read only, you won't inadvertently change the file and a Save As will then pop up for any attempt to Save.

took sanpshot but forgot to paste in paint and save it.
how to recover it?
operating system: windows 7 home basic

A:took sanpshot but forgot to paste in paint and save it

I don't think that's impossible to recover, because based on my experienced a screenshot (using keyboard) will just temporarily copy the image from your clipboard which you need to paste right-away. You may use third-party application for screen capturing that would automatically saved your snapshots on a specified directory.

Greetings,

I am using XP and I use MS Paint for screen shot pastes. I then have to promptly save those files. Now, I know its not much but ev ery time I save, the default save as type is BMP (which I feel is just awful for what I am doing) and would like to change the default to JPG (which I need, want, and love)

Any registry changes that can deal with that?

Thanks!

A:Can you change the DEFAULT Save As type in MS Paint to JPG

When you press print screen for a screenshot
and open Paint, paste and go to save, don't you have a drop down box
that gives you a variety of choices, including JPG? I do.

Or am I not understanding the problem.

I generally use Irfanview for this purpose.

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
4GG RAM

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:
Rotate View tool,
Sampling Ring,
HUE Color Picker,
Drag and Drop from Mini Bridge.

In the Spanish version of Paint Ctrl+G is shown to be a shortcut for Save, and Ctrl+D a shortcut to show/hide the grid. However, Ctrl+G shows/hides the grid and Ctrl+D does nothing. There is no shortcut for Save. Ctrl+S does nothing either (it's shortcut for Save in English versions of most programs).

A:Save and Grid keyboard shortcuts overlap in Spanish version of Paint

I agree with Sanmartin, we have the same result while using the Spanish display. Gabrielmaldi, if your Windows 7 is Spanish version, this issue should be a bug. Since we have no trouble in the English display, if you can install the English MUI, you can switch to English display to avoiding this issue. I hope this can help you.John

So, I was just going to continue organizing sprites in a PNG file, when I noticed that the transparent selection has stopped functioning. It worked just fine yesterday, but now I can't just make it work. I have selected the "transparent selection" in the selection tool menu, and both colours are selected as RGB 000 black (colour of the background) with the pick colour tool, but it just doesn't work anymore.

Maybe its time for Adobe Photoshop?

Hi,

I have tried so many times, that i now think it cant be done.
Now thinking that maybe Photoshop doesn't do JPGs,
maybe it relies on the PC to do the JPG.

I am new to this stuff, and i keep thinking that SURELY
photoshop can save images as JPGs,
but if so i cant see how to do it.

I can save images from my scanner using Photoshop as BMPs,
but so far i cant see how to save as JPGs.

Any help with this would be appreciated ... John

Tried everything on it. Can't find anything on the web about it either just wondering is there a setting within that window of save for web that should be changed? Any help would be great

A:Can't save for web as .gif in photoshop cs6 :(

Generally these days, GIF format has been largely superseded by the newer PNG, unless you're using animations.
For static images, it's better to use PNG for web, as it normally can provide better compression and transparency. Keep GIFs only for multiframes small animations.

Everything appears to work OK, except that when using 'Save for Web' on any picture does not produce the usual Plug-in page from which I can select the file size and type that I need.

No such problems with Photoshop CS3.

Any suggestions what I need to do?
