Hello,

I have a problem with Adobe Photoshop. For some reason, the program crashes frequently when I am opening PSD extension file. So I am looking for PSD opening programs.

Could you recommend a good one?

Thanks in advance!

Are you just wanting to open and view it or are you hoping to find a program that will allow you to edit in a way similar to PS? I do believe that GIMP can open a PSD file but I'm not sure if you can pick up the editing where you left off in PS. Your better option may be trying to figure out why your PS keeps crashing and fixing that problem.

I concur with JRA. Have you checked Adobe's website? Is PS up to date? If it's an older CS version, there might be updates to fix it. I'd suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the programme. Why do you have to edit PSD as opposed to CR2 or NEF? would that simplify things? Or if it's CC, download the latest demo, uninstall your existing copy and install the demo using your license key. Good lick.

First of all you should try to find out why Photoshop crashes on a PSD file. Simply put it shouldn't and many of the reasons it might may very well still exist with some other software package and again cause problems. You might try the steps at http://www.creativeblo​q.com ...op/stop-crashing-51411615 (external link) and see what you can learn and perhaps adjust some settings.

Do you know what your crash report is reporting as a cause?

Thanks in advance!

Is it crashing opening one file or all .psd files. If it is on one or a small number of files, might look to file corruption. If it is all psd files or open a psd one time but fails opening the same later, then it might be the program or pc. But I'm with John from PA, find out why. It is definitely not normal.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
