Adobe 2018CC Photoshop locks up and will not reopen after opening up a (regardless of file format) in Bridge/RAW converter.
Open a file in RAW converter, make adjustments, crop and click DONE. The adjustments are not saved in their XMP file and now Photoshop is locked, non-responsive.
I did find That I can open one or more in RAW converter, make adjustments and before opening or clicking DONE I SAVE AS (lower left corner od RAW converter screen) to a designated folder and to a specified file format It will save to those specs. But not save to XMP and when complete Photoshop is frozen. Must Ctrl/Alt/Delete and close photoshop.
I uninstalled Creative Cloud completely, even going through folders deleting any Adobe files. In both Program folders and Common Files. There were some folders in the PROGRAM Files/COMMON FILES/ADOBE/ which would not delete (will nor delete due to open in an application) not applications were open at the time. There were no Adobe APPS on the computer. But I reinstalled Creative Cloud and most of the folders which would not delete were replaced with 7/17/2018 date folders.
Once Creative Cloud was up I only installed/started Photoshop and Bridge. Did complete reinstall three times and had the same results.
Photoshop locked up and after looking for answers at Adobe I opened Task Manager and Photoshop was not listed to END, but it was on the screen and active on the tool bar below. Reappeared and ENDED.
More: opened JPG directly in Photoshop cropped and SAVED. Error in Photoshop says could not save due to file is locked. File PROPERTY is nor Read Only
