This is baffling to me. Please see my attached screenshot--I've got an image that I pasted into photoshop. You'll see that it is showing up in my layers pallette, but not in the actual image on my screen.
Can anyone offer any help?
I'm on a PC running windows 7 and Photoshop CS5.
Nothing wrong jumps out to me. I'm guessing that it's either low memory, or a video driver hiccup. I occassionally see screen redraw problems on my system, and sometimes dragging the document window off the screen, then back on, reveals the image. It doesn't actually solve the problem, however, so I'd recommend updating your video card driver to the latest version to see if that fixes it.
To help verify whether your video card is at the heart of this, disable the OpenGL options in Photoshop.
Go to Edit > Preferences > Performance
Uncheck "Enable OpenGL Drawing" from the "GPU Settings" area in the lower right.
Reopen your document (this setting change will only effect new document windows, it will not change the behavior of currently open documents).
If everything starts working after that, then we know this is an issue with your video card.
Unchecked made my image display in the document again for me. It would be good to know how to make 'OpenGL Drawing' work again in Photoshop- this is the first time I've had problems. I'll check whether a restart helps for me.
Usually you just need to update your video card driver software.
But some drivers aren't updated anymore, and some cards just don't work correctly - so the option is there to disable GPU use entirely.
