I have been getting error while saving and merging the layers after updating to v22.1. My photoshop files are saved on creative cloud and I am importing the files to edit through external drive.
PS It's working when I am hiding that specific layer.
Macbook Pro early 2015 running BigSur.
absolute pisstake. Was finishing up on a client project and I literally cant save to either the cloud or harddrive due to 'program error'. First I could edit text at all (the :prohibited: cursor would pop up despite the layer being selected, not locked and the type tool selected).
, now when I make changes to text I have to zoom out/ in to see the actual change. And most notably, I CANNOT SAVE ANY OF IT.
If youre going to purposely make a cloud-based system and Apple gets to create an OS that forces you to abandon 5.5 or other non-subscription package, at least make it work when I have literally one last image to draw for a client for a deadline
I am also totally angry. Test the program before you force us to update and use it with no other choice. There is obviously a bug in Photoshop 2021.FIX IT!!!!
I just spent 4 hours on a document that I cannot delete. and Adobe just goes on charging money while you cannot work!!
I cannot save it to the cloud, as a psb, to the web or in any other format. I cleared the HD and everything off the computer and STILL I CANNOT SAVE THIS FILE. HOURS WASTED WHICH I SHOULD CHARGE TO ADOBE!!!
AND I have to wait 2 hours before I can talk to someone for help. TERRIBLE SERVICE!!!
I'm having the same issue. I was able to save to files to the cloud and then when it came to the third I get this generic error message.
Hi everyone. I'm having the same problem. Just like the image below. Tryied everything. Change format (tiff/jpeg/psd/etc), change location… Same reply always…
Arg! Same issue here
I am having the same issues lost hours of work nothing is being saved.
I got the same error too! I started two conversations with adobe support agents and they couldn't solve the problem either!
How long should we wait for the fix!?!
I'm having the same problem, running on a Mac that's just a few months old on Catalina. I'm not even processing super large files, just trying to merge a couple of image layers for a simple edit. It's inconsistent. Sometimes I can get it to work without a hitch, sometimes I can work on something for an hour and then it won't merge layers or save. Restarting sometimes helps, but I lose all my work. I'm beyond frustrated. Adobe Bridge is performing equally badly, with random crashes when I use keyboard shortcuts. Is this the best that Adobe can do? I can't believe I'm paying for this.
I did all that myself (I have 64GB of ram and 75% was allocated to Photoshop) and even tried disabling "Use Graphics Processor" which didn't help. Graphics card drivers are fully up-to-date as well. I even tried uninstalling Photoshop, removing all preferences, and reinstalling to no avail.
It all did't work for me neather.
I've had some luck getting past this error by using "Save As" and adding a digit to the file and then saving. Ex. File I'm working on is 4545.psd and I edit it, with new layers, etc. then use the "Save As" and change the filename to 4545_1.psd and it saves as expected. It obviously takes up a lot more HD space, but until Adobe fixes this, it's the only way I can save files I work on.
Same problem here since the recent update. It's beyond infuriating now!! Adobe are you working on this?
I've been getting the same type of errors, but only when doing "Export As". Regular saving was working okay for Tiff, PSD, and JPEG. I've had other errors as well. When using the heal tool on a layer, I'd just get a sudden error pop up and couldn't use the tool anymore unless I closed the file and reopened it.
I reverted back to v21.2.4 and not having any issues with it. Not going to update until these bugs have been fixed.
I'm also having the same problem.. Please fix this asap.
See the "Program error saving files" in attached help article from Adobe : https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/known-issues.html#ProgramErroropeningfiles
In addition - please add to the the thread in the feedback forum where Adobe developers will see it. On this forum we are volunteer customers and do not work for Adobe.
Those solutions doesn't work for me, so I installed the older vesion. which is working perfectly, so yeah, waiting for the new update.
Thank you for great answer ... I've so frustrated with program error things ... Hiding layer before saving is really the solution for now ... Hopefully, Adobe will fix this soon
I'm about to lose my mind. I've redone the same thing four times now because it cannot save. In any format, on any drive, through any cloud. WHY AM I PAYING FOR SOMETHING that does NOT WORK. In a time where creatives and artists are already struggling, Photoshop should not be added to the list of worries. Absolutely appalling. I've tried changing permissions, uninstalling and reinstalling, rebooting my laptop, waiting, praying and even crying, but all in vain.
Photoshop please, just work.
Does anyone have a solution I may not have tried?
(maybe I should put it in rice?)
As far as I know they're still working on fixing the major bugs. I'm sticking with version 21.2.4 for the time being.
