When I open same PSD file in Photoshop 22, gradient map adjustment layer is broken (discarded as uknown data).

Hello @ashoks56750080 , I apologize for the inconvenience this is causing. If a document created in Ps 23.1.1 contains Gradient Maps with Perceptual or Linear interpolation methods, when this document is open in Ps 22.5.5 a warning message will be displayed.

Hello, please make sure the most recent versions of Photoshop have been installed for version 23.x and version 22.5.x.

When opening a document with a Gradient Map created in most recent version of 23.x in version 22.5.4 or newer, the interpolation method of the gradient map defaults to Classic.

If this is not what is happening, please provide steps on the workflow you are doing and we'll investigate. Thank you

I can see many users mention the exact specific problem and the exact workflows to reproduce the error. Yet admins keep asking about what the specific issue is OR what the workflow is?? My company uses all updated versions of photoshop but the gradient map adjustment layer is lost between two updated users. THIS IS A HUGE BUG. Why isn't this fixed yet??

The message reads "This document contains a gradient map rendered using a method that is not available in this version of Photoshop, which may alter the appearance of the document. In order to ensure consistent rendering, please flatten the image in Photoshop 2022."

The Gradient Maps interpolation method will default to Classic in Ps 22.5.5. The new interpolation methods are not supported by earlier versions of Photoshop. 

If what you are experiencing is different from this, it could be a scenario that hasn't been covered, please provide the specific steps of the workflow and the System Info file of the 2 computers used in the workflow.

System info can be found under the Help menu.

Thank you

I'm having the same version issues with "gradient maps". In addition, the latest version of photoshop doesn't display a preview for the gradient map. Gradient Maps are my most used adjustment layers. Please fix this.
