I have been modifying several jpeg images - changing background color mostly. Some of them save successfully, others do not. There is no apparent difference between the verious jpegs (size, etc).
On the ones that will not save, I get the following error message: "Could not complete your request becaause of a program error".
I have tried various things to fix that I have found by Goolgling - changing the printer, re-loading Photoshop.
Any other ideas would be welcome.
Has this ever happened before? If it has worked well up to now I would suggest resettng preferences. Believe it is same as current versions. Start PS and immediatelly hold down shift alt ctrl keys. If fast enough you will get a reset window.
Reloading PS will not affect this file.
For one thing, Photoshop 7.0 doesn't understand modern (huge) disk sizes.
Beyond that, it is 6 major versions out of date, having been developed for Windows XP. What OS are you running?
You can't even hope to run it at all on a modern Macintosh.
Why are you trying to use such an ancient version? It might be possible to get it to work under certain controlled circumstances, but maybe you want to consider moving up to a modern version?
I am using Windows 7. I have had PS 7.0 since it was new, but don't use it very much. It was very expensive, and I can't afford to upgrade.
I'm not sure what partitioning is. The image is 1037KB; I am trying to put the revised one back in the same folder with a new name. I will Google partitioning and see if I can make that work.
Can you tell us what the full specs. are, for your I/O sub-system, i.e. your HDD's (Hard Disk Drives) size, free-space, controller type, and speed?
A "partition" is the creation of several "logical volumes" on a single "physical HDD." It was required, going back in time, when the OS's, and the programs, of that day, could not address larger HDD's. As a "for instance," PS could only see 4GB of HDD space, for use as Scratch Disks. I cannot recall just when PS could see, and use, larger HDD's, but think that it was as of CS (the next version after PS 7). Also, there was an important update for PS 7, and it think that it was PS 7.0.1. If you have not applied that update, I would do so.
More and More Photoshoppers are returning to Photoshop 7 it is in may ways the best version ever made .....The above advice is very relevant ie Partition not too big and above all the 32bit version of Windows 7 or XP
I have never had trouble and do infact run Photoshop 4,5.5,6 and 7.........have to use CS5 at work!!!!.....Good Luck
