I have been using my Photoshop without having a single problem. Yesterday, I wanted to modify a PSD file which I designed a month back for one of my client. As soon as I opened the document, I got an error prompt and the application is getting closed. I tried to open it on other system and the same thing happened. So, it is clear cut that the problem is with file and not with the application. Can any of you help me to solve the issue? Any suggestions will be gratefully appreciated.
