I was sent a .psd-file (actually 3) which were created in Photoshop CS3 but I can not open any of them, because PS tell me
"Could not complete your request because it is not a valid Photoshop document."
Also, I was sent a lot of .psd-files during the last years and I have most of them in my email-account. Unfortunately, I can't even open any of them either!! And these were .psd-files PRE CS3 and worked just fine in CS2 ...
I tried everything:
- Drag & Drop from Windows Explorer into Photoshop
- "Open as"
Had this for the first time last week but was able to resurrect the file in Corel paint. However, when it happened again not even this worked. This was on a file created on a mac running legal software and where the file was definitely saved as a psd. Tried it on gimp and that didn't work either - any ideas on how to repair this would be gratefully received. Bloody annoying as Photoshop is normally fairly stable.

Add me to the list of users with this problem. I spent hours creating a banner to use for a postcard in Photoshop CS3. Saved as a .psd file. Presto...I can't open the file anymore. The only unusual thing I did was use a layer mask.
Im a Mac user and Im working with CS3 on OSX 10.5.4 and Im running into the same issue. I have dedicated 26 hours of my time creating 9 files in Photoshop, which are part of a project. I have saved them as PSDs and today when trying to retrieve them Im getting the following error message with 5 of them: Could not complete your request because it is not a valid Photoshop document. I'm not saving over a network. Please provide some feedback, Ive tried everything I can think of to open them and still havent been able to Im pretty frustrated.
