I have corel painter 2015. I have recently saved some work in the psd format to use in the latest version of adobe photoshop. The file will not open in this version of photoshop. Do I have to upgrade? I am not sure if my computer can run painter 2021 or 2020 smoothly. I have 2012 mac pro. Could I go buy painter 2017? Sometimes I want to use my painter images in photoshop or illustrator.
Hi Jeff, I'm curious, could there be specific features you are creating in Painter, that cannot be opened in Photoshop even though the file is in PSD format? Perhaps a quick screenshot of your layer stack could help...although I've not seen such an issue before, a specific layer type and/or layer feature could be the cause of the incompatibility. We could try saving an alternate version of the file without some of the 'suspect layers/features' to determine the root cause...then see if there is a way to preserve your hard work as you transition to Photoshop.
We can start there, before having to move you to a new version or different software package.
