    Hang in there ...in the long it will serve you well.

    Perhaps it would help by looking at some graphic images for the same subject matter? Compare the two and then re-approach your assignment....

    Hmm, I don't think you have that option. You can't choose which older version you want to upgrade to. You can buy/rent (for full price) either CS6 or CC. "Upgrade" pricing only applies if you...

  • 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.

      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
