Somewhere along the line in recent months I can no longer open multiple files from either Bridge or Camera Raw. A single file opens fine, but I can't load files into different layers, nor perform a photomerge from Bridge. I tried dumping the Preferences file but it made no difference.
Problem seems to have started when I undid a Photoshop CC 2015 install (too many crashes) and tried to put Photoshop CC 2014 back. The 2014 version seems to work in all respects except the inability to open multiple files.
This has continued through a few updates.
Any idea what to try next?
Did you try the following steps ?
Select multiple images in Bridge and go to Tools menu> Photoshop> Load files into Photoshop layers..
Open Photoshop and go to File menu> Scripts> Load Files into Stack
Thank you for your suggestions. I did try the first one from Bridge (of course; and it made no difference), but must wait another day to try the second.
solved! thank you!
