I am trying to open a .bmp file using Photoshop CC 2015.5, but receive the following error message: "Could not complete your request because the file-format module cannot parse the file."
I think the file itself is OK because it can be opened in Paint, and other .bmp files that originated from the same piece of equipment could be opened on a different computer/earlier version of Photoshop.
When I downloaded Photoshop, I did not do any customization (don't really know how). Looking at other forums, the suggestion was made to look for a "BMP.8BI" file, but there is not even a "File Formats" folder in the AP CS2 "Plug-Ins" folder.
open the file in Paint, then save it again as JPG, PNG or BMP and reopen it in Photoshop.
