    HOW IT HAPPENED:
    » I saved my file
    » Pasted something in the file and it beachballed
    » Tried to forcequit photoshop
    » Didn't close the file or any other files
    » Chose to hard restart comp, then I opened that file back up, and it shows a prompt stating, "could not complete your request because the file is not compatible with this version of photoshop"

    What can I do to restore the file?!

    Tried to open it up in Fireworks and Illy. I can see a preview, but each program says the file is unreadable/corrupt.

    You can't. Best you can do now is to limit how much of your life you are going to devote to trying to ressurrect the file, and then bemoaning and/or mourning the loss of your work, the waste of your time.

    Cut immediately to the chase. End the wasted time right now by starting again from whatever artefacts you may have or from scratch if you have no artefacts.

    DO IT. DO IT NOW. DON'T WAIT FOR A BETTER ANSWER, TAKE THIS ONE AND GET BACK ON IT IMMEDIATELY.

    there are several freeware apps out there that read psd's. i'd open it with them to see if any can at least grab the layers so you'll have something to start over with. have you tried other apps like gimp?

    • IGNORE THIS. START AGAIN.Horp1/5
      1. Google Search
      2. Refine search
      3. Find freeware app
      4. Read about it ... (PTO)
      Horp2/5
      5. Download it
      6. Install it
      7. Agree to terms
      8. Launch it.... (PTO)

      10. Read 'fail' message
      11. Return to google
      12. Go to 01, repeat.

    What is the extension of the file? PSD or layered tif?

    • fuck me you can get layered tifs?set1/3
      @set yes you can get layered TIFF. people don't like to do that cuz the file size gets massive.pango2/3
      i know, just sarcasm as I don't know anyone who uses that shit these days..set3/3

    I had a similar thing happen because I had saved it with an PSD extension but it was actually (by mistake) a layered tif. I had to change the extension to .tif and then it worked.

    Have you tried opening a previous version of the file? I do my best to save out versions. Or even try opening the same file on a different machine. A hard re-boot could purge the ram.

    Adobe sucks.

    Maybe try to open in PREVIEW, then re-save as whatever - tif, jpg etc, then try to open that file in PS?

    I've opened CS5 illy files, reserved as PDF, then popped into CS3 for another work-around. (the job only has CS3 so have to do a great deal) - maybe it will work?
