  • 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

              Picking your battles carefully, I see.

                I think you have a good sense of aesthetics and making things look nice. One very important thing to consider, though, is that typography is meant to be read and meant to aid in communication. You've...

                If they're only open to tweaking the logo, I'd at least suggest making the spaces between the letters the same as the spaces between the cross bars on the E. This would pull apart the overly tight kerning,...

                Your wisdom and experience are showing again. It's true there are all types of work situations to be found, and very few of them qualify as a "dream job." Whether you can tolerate a situation,...

                Yup. That's largely my take on things too. Maybe I'm jaded by the constant parade of newbies, wannabes, amateurs and kids on the forum making artsy, fartsy whatevers in Photoshop and proposing to go into...
