  • Mac sees PS file as a Unix executable?

    Okay, here's a weird one. I've got a bunch of files on archive discs, anywhere from 3 to 7 years old. They show up on the Mac as "Unix executable" files. If I try to send one to Photoshop CS, I get an error saying it's the wrong type of file. If I send one to Illustrator, it brings up the Import Photoshop dialog and imports the file just fine!

    Any ideas how to open them directly in Photoshop? Changing it to "Open with Adobe Photoshop CS" makes no difference.

    Can you just change the extension?

      Well, that was simple! I don't have any great expertise on a Mac, and I didn't think they paid any attention to the extension...

      Thanks!

            Actually I'm always right and you folks better never forget it. It's just that I answer fewer and fewer questions any more

                My definition of data visualization is just that, the visualization of data. This could be anything from a simple Excel pie chart to something as elaborate as what the OP posted. I don't know how you've...

                Apologies for taking this much of the OP's thread and I get what you guys are saying.

                But data visualization is about the flow of data from there to there.

                The examples posted...

                It might not be worth pursuing, but it just occurred to me that tilting a cube so that one of the corners is pointing directly at the viewer results in three sides of the block being visible. It doesn't...

                I can see why she likes the scratchboard look of the blocks -- it is a nice look. As an illustrative technique, it's great. As a logo, though, it'll create potential problems for her.
