  • Photoshop Won't Open

    Ok, I'm not so sure this topic belongs in here...but bear with me.

    I am trying to open Photoshop. I click on the program and it goes through its startup routine (you know, where the credits window pops up and it shows you the status of the program opening). Anyway, as soon as that startup window closes, the program quits. It just disappears like I never opened it in the first place. I removed the program and reinstalled it. Still does it. I installed Windows updates (the site said that might affect how the program runs). Still doesn't work.

    Any ideas on what could be wrong with my computer? Well, besides the fact it's possessed by Satan himself???

    Did you throw away from preferance file for PS? Try that then reboot and see if that helps.

        There is a preference file for every program that you use. If you throw away the current one for PS, it will create a new preference file when you restart Photoshop. Sometimes those preference files get corrupt when a program or computer freezes, crashes or sometimes for no reason at all.

        Your on a PC and I am not sure where they are located on there, but you can run a search on 'photoshop' and it should come up as the file name being something like 'Adobe Photoshop Prefs' or something to that affect. Just take that file and throw it away, then reboot.

                  Another way to get rid of it is, as soon as Photoshop's starting to load, hold down shift + ctrl + alt (be quick!), until it asks if you really want to delete the user's settings. I did this, and it fixed the same problem you had; fortunately, this did not get rid of my Fkey shortcuts. I did have to reset the units from cm to inches again, but so what.

                    I would agree with your logic if it weren't for the entire name of the company being placed immediately adjacent to the truck. In those instances where you don't spell out the entire name, the P1L is...

                    I agree that having a baby in an ad for alcohol isn't a good idea. While it may be funny to a small demographic (most of whom probably aren't drinking age yet), most people are going to find this distasteful....

                    To rockinthisworld,

                    I can half way agree, maybe I need to look at it from a different view point for a while, that the line signifying the road is a bit much and or un-called for. Several...

                    I'll leave the truck talk to people who know things about trucks, but here are my thoughts.
                    • The line that's supposed to indicate the ground doesn't add anything to the illustration.
                    • The line framing
                    ...
