photoshop cs5 randomly freezes when opening a file. File does not open and cannot move palettes. Only rebooting cures it for a time then ...freeze again! Seems to be getting worse, happening more often. I have all the updates. Running on macbook pro 2.4 core i7 8gb ram OS 10.7.5. Basically I work away and then I try to open a file, the windows and pallets all open but the actual file doesn't. The layers are showing all relevant info but if I try to move the pallet...frozen! Have to reboot to get the file to open. There is no specific file, it just happens after about a day of use!
Any idea out there please?
The fact that the layers palette shows layers, but the document window doesn't show is a common symptom of bugs in your video card driver.
You can turn off GPU drawing in Photoshop's preferences, or update the video card driver from the GPU maker's website.
Well, tried all those suggestions but unfortunately the darned photoshop did exactly the same thing as soon as I tried to open a file! Reboot and see if it does it again! Back to the proverbial board.
