I’ve always been able to work on photoshop with no problems. The minute I get a new client who needs photoshop work done now all the sudden it doesn’t want to work. Ive tried everything restarting computer, force quitting photoshop. Every single time I go start a new document It freezes, or completely restarts my computer, its really frustrating.
Whats wrong with my photoshop?
A:If a tool is behaving erratically, first try resetting just that tools preferences, via the method outlined by Len Hewitt in the post below this one.
If you have larger troubles, hold down Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys (Mac: Command, Option, Shift) while starting up Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences/settings file.
A2: You can also simply search your hard drive for a *.psp file and delete it. It will be called something along the lines of “Adobe Photoshop X Prefs.psp”.
Under Vista or 7, look here: Users/[Username]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop [version #]/Adobe Photoshop [version #] Settings
Under Win 2k/XP the preference file will be found at: windir \Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\[version #]\Adobe Photoshop [version #] Settings
[NOTE: You need to set Window’s Explorer Options to “View Hidden Files and Folders” to display the Preference file]
Do you see something like a BSOD before your pc restarts?
Madalincmc, Yes I do it does a quick blue flash and then cuts off. Should I just give in and go buy photoshop cs6? and uninstall the cs5?
Demofofoza, I’ll try doing all that and see if it works. Thanks lots!
Definitely it’s not reason to buy newer Photoshop If however it’s not software related problem, you may have issue with one of your inside hardware components. Probably RAM, Graphic Card or Hard Drive. But let’s wait.
Are you using Mac or PC?
- Exit the photoshop.
- Hold [ Alt+Ctrl+Shift ] still holding & press photoshop icon to run it.
- A window will appear press ok then the photoshop will open.
I hope it will help you!
