Opening images via Bridge to photoshop CS6

Jan 30, 2013 7:14 PM



We are  teaching 3 young 8 year olds Dreamweaver CS6 and Photoshop CS6 (recent installations). We are going fine with Dreamweaver but then we needed to learn how to manipulate images. In particular make new logos for the site and create images for uplaoding from the camera.


We are new to photoshop CS6 but wouldn't expect the issues we are getting right now.


We can't open jpegs completely. We get a transparent background or just a part image. Must be something we are doing wrong I guess. It looks fine in Bridge but really isn't loading well in Photoshop.


Here is where you can see about the laptop we are using :


Here is a screendump of the issue:


By the way this is a site which we are using dreamweaver for. We have made a members login page which appears to be working but as you can see unfortunately we badly need to create a logo and make some images for their site which isn't created yet. If I can keep them from games and from Minecraft then we will make progress


It needs to be ready soon so that I can get a domain for them and host it on my Dad's servers.

    If you are having trouble using Photoshop you will probably get better results if you post in one of the Photoshop forums.  While are are available from the page linked below, the General Discussion one at the top is the most popular, though there is the new one for beginners if you think that might be better.

    Update your graphics driver or turn off hardware acceleration in the prefs.

    You have resource hungry programs and antique system so operation may be a little slow and some features may not work.  But it sounds like the video card/driver is not working well.  What do you have for video card, and has driver been updated.


    To turn off the graphics processor open edit/preferences/performance and uncheck Use Graphics Processor.
