Hello,

When I open Photoshop I get a notification: gradient file is bad or corrupt.

I asked it before and got the reply to search for 'gradients.psp' file, but that does not exists......

Is there someone who can explain how I can solve the problem?

I've read this solution for "Gradient File is bad or Corrupted."

  • Quit Photoshop.

  • Navigate to Photoshop's Preferences folder.

    macOS: Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop [version] Settings

    Windows 10: Users/[user name]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop [version]/Adobe Photoshop [version] Settings

    Locate your Gradients.PSP file.

    Copy it to a temporary folder. You probably won't need it but save it, just in case.

    Delete the Gradients.PSP file from the Adobe Photoshop Settings folder. Photoshop will regenerate a new Gradients.PSP file when launched.

    Launch Photoshop. If you still get the error, create a new document and use a gradient preset. Then quit and reopen Photoshop.

    Hopefully this should resolve it.
