I downloaded Photoshop Beta a few days ago to restored a photo. But I came across a few issues:
1. I could not use Photoshop Beta alongside the Released (regular) version of photoshop - it was either one or the other, and once I downloaded Beta the only way I could return to released PS was to uninstall the Beta version.
2. I like some of the new features, but it really slowed down my PC!
3. I save files as TIFFs to print, using Professional Print & Layout software, but after saving files from PS Beta as TIFFs I found I could not drop them into Professional Print & Layout. Any Tiff files that had been saved using the Released version of Photoshop caused no problems, so I am presuming this is a bug with the BETA version.
Disappointed I had to uninstall the Beta App, because I was interested in a lof of the new features, but as I said I could not keep both, so beta had to go!
Thanks for posting the issues you're seeing with Photoshop beta.
You're right that Windows does not allow the two versions of Photoshop to be open at the same time. You'll need to close Released version of Photoshop in order to open the Beta and visa versa.
Regarding Tiffs saved from Beta. What happened when you tried to add them?
Hi Pete, Thanks for getting back to me,
When I tried to add Tiffs saved from Beta nothing happened! I was dragging them in from Bridge to Professional Print & Layout, but they just didn't appear! Had to use JPEGs instead. I have now uninstalled the Beta Version and have gone back to using the released version of PS - with no problems!
Kind Regards, Michelle
Sorry for the trouble Michelle. Strange you weren't able to open Tiffs.
We'll have another build out this week, hopefully you'll give that one a try with your Tiff files.
Would be curious if you used File > Open on these Tiffs if they'd open that way?
