i am usuing PS 5.5. Has been working fine fo years and suddenly now upon clicking save for web, i get the error message; could not support the export command because photoshop 5.0 does not supply the services required by the plug-in module and then crashes.
Could you give us more information about your machine and photoshop?
What did change recently that might have caused the issue? did you install a given program, system updates?
If it is really Photoshop 5.5, there might not be help>system info that you can copy and paste here, but if you are using CS5, there will be.
Hi. I am running Windows 7. A few weeks ago the system did do an update but I don't know how to find out if something in the Windows update would effect it.
I am running 5.5 so there is no system information under help.
Any assistance would be greatly apprecitated!
I am afraid that very few people will be able to help you. 5.5 was released in the last millenium, in 1999! and it was written for NT or windows 95/98... At that time, Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7 did not exist, and you are running it in 7. Did you try saving as a regular JPG?
I'm wondering, if you cannot pay for the full version, and that the other software you would get with Creative Cloud don't intersest you, I'd look into Photoshop elements, it costs lower than $100, and is written for the modern OSes.
You can remove the system updates if you go to program and features, and select view installed updates on the right side. You will see when they have been installed, and can uninstall them with a right-click, but proceed with extreme caution.
Can anyone tell me if there is another version of Photoshop (after 5.5) that is compatible w/Windows 7 that is out there? What is the difference between elements and photoshop? I use it for a few client projects and that is it, so can't justify (or afford) purchasing the newest full blown photoshop for my home pc. Any suggestions at all would be very welcomed! Thanks!!
Lots of stuff on the web, just type in Photoshop Elements vs Photoshop. Here is one http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshopfamily/buying-guide-version-com parison.html
Adobe only sells and supports only the latest version. Version 7 was probably the best old version. Some have it running on Win7, others have problems getting it to run. Finding someone to sell it is a problem.
Looks like GIMP does layers.
