I have a problem with a PSD file that I was working on earlier this day. My PC froze and rebooted several times when I was working on it. But for the third time, that I restarted and went to work on it again, I got this message from CS2:
'could not complete your request, because the file is not compatible with this version of Photoshop.'
So there you have it, I spent a lot of time and energy into that file and now I can't work with it anymore. I lost my self at that moment. Now, how can this be redone?
My sympathies. The file was corrupted as mentioned. To my knowledge, there's no way to recover it.
When Photoshop freezes, try to get a screen cap first and saving it in paint or something before closing PS, that way you have at least a low res version.
'Cuz life is full of your regrets, and I should be one...
Thanks the both of you for helping and concerning. I'm going to use multiple copies from now on, very good idea. Well, the freezing part is where it goes wrong, it freeze for one second and reboots. So there is no time to screen capture at all.
I already begun working again with the same project, I'll be more careful then the first time. When I got everything at scedule in my life and being less stressed out, my computer will face a rediculous clean up or eternal death, I'm so tired of that thing in the first place.
have you tried using a 3rd party image view to open it .. like say xnView (pc)... and then converting it? You may loose all the layers but you might get your image back.. i have had this problem once when accidentally saved over my PSD as a TGA but with the PSD file extension, PS wouldn't open it but xnView did.
