    Cannot open my files!


      My Photoshop CS6 shuts down EVERY time I try to open a new file. It started occuring a few hours ago. I have sent the "Adobe Crash Report" and am pretty frustrated. Any suggestions? I'd rather not have to wait until tomorrow to call.


      I am not a beginner... I've been using PS for years... and this is the first "glitch" for me.

          Good day!


          Are Photoshop and OS fully updated and have you performed the usual trouble-shooting routines (trashing prefs by pressing command-alt-shift/ctrl-alt-shift while starting Photoshop until the appropriate dialog appears after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved and making a note of the Preferences you’ve changed, 3rd party plug-ins deactivation, system maintenance, cleaning caches, font validation, etc.)

            Hi there, because the forum you originally posted in is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop, I moved your question to the Photoshop General Discussion forum, where you'll get more specialized help.
