Can't open TIFF file.  Probably the file is corrupted.

Hello,
I have a batch of TIFF files that I am trying to open but when I do, Photoshop says "Could not complete your request because of a problem parsing the TIFF file."  I assume the files are corrupt, so I was just wondering how would I do about to fix them.  I used PixRecovery but that wasn't that good because I couldn't repair them in as a batch and since I have more than 400 files, I don't have the time to do them one by one.  Please help.  Much appreciated.

There could be some type of compression used on them that PS doesn't like. I know some geospatial imagery is tiff - jpg compressed and needs some other software help in order to convert to a readable form. Maybe post an image?

    In what file type and compression format did you download the YouTube content? I.e., to avoid such issues, you would normally download the source files as content that is natively compatible with your target player or convert incompatible file type/compression format combinations to files that are compatible with your targeted media player.

  • I have downloaded, extracted and installed Elements 12 but it will not open nor can I find the Adobe file in the file where I installed it to..  When I've tried to download and install again

    I have downloaded, extracted and installed Elements 12 but it will not open nor can I find the Adobe file in the file where I installed it to..  When I've tried to download and install again it says that the "Object Already Exists."  It may exists, but it is not visible in the file or in my list of programs on the Startup Menu.

    You should not have to uninstall Premiere Elements 12/12.1 in order to install and run Premiere Elements 13 on the same computer unless your computer is overloaded and the computer resources are compromised. Just use one program at a time.
    Can you still use 12/12.1 on this same computer that will not let you use 13?
    What specific Window operating system are you using?
    Let us go through the usual drill...
    1. Does the problem exist with and without the antivirus and firewall(s) disabled?
    2. Are you using a pen and tablet device instead of a mouse?
    3. Did you install the program with antivirus and firewall(s) disabled?
    4. Disable the SLCache Folder found in Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit
    Local Disk C
    Program Files (x86)
    Common Files
    Adobe
    and in the Adobe Folder should be the SL Cache Folder that you delete or disable by renaming the Folder
    from SLCache to SLCacheOLD.
    5. Are you running the program as Administrator and is the latest version of QuickTime installed on the same
    computer as Premiere Elements 13?
    Let us start here and then decide what next.
    Thank you.

    Reinstall 10.6 again, but this time hold c boot off the 10.6 and erase the ENTIRE internal drive.
    You do this by selecting the drive makers name and size on the left hand side, not the slightly indented partition underneath it.
    If you erase and install 10.6 only into a parittion, say Macintosh HD, the you still have the hidden Lion Recovery Partition on the drive and it appears you already have 10.7
    In the MAS, hold option and click Purchases to redownload Lion
    FYI, you don't need to install 10.6 to reinstall 10.7, 10.7 can be reinstalled via the Lion Recovery, Command r boot.

  • Unable to start Photoshop CS6 - could not open a scratch file because the file is locked (Windows)

    When I first installed Adobe Photoshop CS6 I was unable to run Photoshop or Bridge CS6.  Photoshop would give me an error about "could not open a scratch file because the file is locked.  If I ran either of these programs as an administrator they would run without issue, this led me to believe that there was a permission issue somewhere.  After some digging I found out the both Bridge and Photoshop try to create a temp file (similiar to Photoshop Temp2777223910092) on the c:\ drive of the computer.  In my case the user that I was logged in with did not have access to write to the root of the C:\ drive.  Note that you run the program as the administrator and change the scratch disk location as that changes the preference for the administrator user and not the user that you are currently logged in as.
    To get around this issue I first had to give the user that I was logged on with write permissions to the root of the C:\ drive.  Next try and run Photoshop, you will get an error another error about the scratch disk and about and invalid or missing setting file.  To correct this you need to have run Photoshop as an administrator, next you can go to Users\Admin\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6\Adobe Photoshop CS6 Settings and copy Adobe Photoshop CS6 Prefs and/or Adobe Photoshop X64 CS6 Prefs to Users\<your logged in username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6\Adobe Photoshop CS6 Settings.
    Photoshop and bridge should now start up with no issues.
    I hope that this can help others out there as this caused me a great deal of frustration when upgrading to CS6.

    OK, here comes the explanation of what the scratch disk does and why it's optimal to have it on a physically separate internal drive (not partition!) other than your boot drive
    I probably shouldn't say anything since it could complicate this thread, but the rules of thumb can be different under special circumstances when SSD is involved.
    IF you have a LOT of empty space on your SSD-based system drive, then Photoshop can actually work great with it's scratch setting pointed at the system drive.  This is because a) SSD transfers are much faster than spinning hard drives and b) there's no seek time, so simultaneous transfers to/from scratch and swap files aren't devastating to performance, and you can see a net gain because of the increased I/O throughput over what's possible using a separate spinning drive for scratch.
    But if you don't have a huge amount of free space (hundreds of GB) on the system SSD, it's definitely better to use a separate drive, as station_two has said.
    Also, up to about a year or so ago, you had to try to severely limit write activity to your SSD drive, since you could actually wear them out by repeated high data write activity.  That's pretty much a non-issue now with the advent of things like the SandForce in-drive controller that does wear-leveling inside the drive.  Modern drives will last 10 years or more in normal typical use, without special consideration.
    As it turns out, making a RAID array of SSDs is a great way to boost performance across the board, have bunches of free space, and ensure even the heaviest usage doesn't shorten the drive life.  I have done so, creating a 2 TB system drive C: made from 4 SSDs and Photoshop's swap file (and pretty much everything else) pointed to C:.  This system flies, and I can barely tell when Photoshop and/or Windows "goes virtual" and starts using its scratch/swap files heavily.  I don't even notice Photoshop auto-saves.
    Sorry for the SSD diversion.
    Back on topic: 
    Pretty much everyone who's successfully using a computer - Mac and PC users alike - comes to realize after a while that the task of integrating things on their computers and making everything work falls on THEM, not the developers of applications like Adobe.  Some applications pose unique challenges, but to think you can just throw up your hands and try to make it someone else's problem when something goes wrong simply isn't a viable strategy.  Maybe that's how things should be, but it's not how it is.
    For those of you struggling to get Photoshop to run properly, bear in mind that it's on you to get things working.  It works for most folks.  It could be a configuration or setup choice you've made that may need revisiting, or some kind of restorative activity that you need to do, or even something very minor like clearing your Photoshop preferences, but it may well take your learning new things and doing things you didn't think you'd have to do to get back to where you can edit photos.  It's no one's problem but your own.
    So let us here on the forum help you - when we say to do something, try it.  We're not here to jerk you around; we're users just like you who have already found the ways to make things work, and we'd like to help you do the same.

  • Exporting PDF files from SSRS 2012 - "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired"

    Good day
    I have the situation where we are exporting PDF files from reporting services in our website. 
    When dividing the data into sections, the report exports perfectly, but when exporting the entire set and trying to open the file, we get the following error in Adobe Reader:
    "There was an error opening this document.  The file is damaged and could not be repaired"
    We tried to repair the file, no luck.  We tried to use different PDF readers, no luck
    We then checked the file sizes.  When exporting the subsections, each section exports a file of about 2mb. 
    When exporting the entire set, the file is about 1.3mb. 
    Adding all the sections together gives me a rough estimate of 40mb.
    Exporting to TIFF works beautifully and returns a file of 41.5mb. Word and Excel formats also work well, only issue there is the page numbering and formatting.
     The problem we have is the clients are adamant about having it in PDF format.
    Any advice please?

    This was one of the temporary suggestions I gave the client...
    Unfortunately they do not like this as the page numbering and formatting in Word does not appear right.  We are talking about over 1300 pages.  I can't expect them to change the formatting with each export.  Additionally,  the data is
    constantly changing and each client has their own data.  The clients export the reports randomly.  I therefore can't post the reports back onto the server.
    Thanks for the speedy response though

  • I can't open a 32-bit HDR file made with Photoshop HDR in Lightroom.

    I can't open a 32-bit HDR file made with Photoshop HDR. I saved the file in Photoshop with the maximum compatibility-option on. In Lightroom the file doesn't show a preview and an exclamation mark in the upper right corner. Anybody an idea why and how to solve this problem?

    As I said, the files must be saved in TIFF format in order for LR to recognize them.

  • Can't open US Gov Pacer pdf files

    The limited Adobe Reader in the Playbook won't open actual case files in the US Court Pacer system.  Searching Pacer FAQs gave some ideas to change some settings, but I cannot find any way to adjust anything in the toy Reader that came with the Playbook.  What a disappointing effort by a respected software producer.  Any one know of a work-around to make this work?  Hopefully someone will port a good substitue in the near future.

    I have run into something similar when people using Kaspersky or other anti-virus try to open PDF email attachment. Somehow the AV screws up the PDF form's headers. Try disabling the AV before opening the client-side email software such as OUTLOOK or webmail. Note: You probably can't recover the corrupted files you already opened in your INBOX.
    Can you post a link to the original and corrupted PDF?

    "Hello, Adda. Most users can use it without problems. Did you set strict permissions on your machine?
    Also, is it a small SSD? you lose their speed benefit by not putting Photoshop's scratch file on it."
    Most power users are having big problems, We don't put scratch files on our SSDs because we know that this will run those into the ground. They are not intended for the pounding of constant read / write cycles. We also switch off indexing and any other constant cycling technology. Again, SSDs are best use for static files. They are, in fact, intended mainly for super fast launch, which is what they do so well. Obviously, if all you have is an SSD, then you have to live with the shortened life.
    I have my scratch files and my TEMP folder set to a huge and empty internal drive. I have my USERS folder hard linked to a different huge internal drive, where I also store MY DOCUMENTS. I have an even larger internal drive where I store MY PICTURES. This has worked flawlessly (and very fast) for CS5 and LR4 Beta 1. Only CS6 complains constantly.
    "Yes, I agree, but sometimes, what sounds and smells like a bug is not one, hence the troubleshooting we're trying to do, before QE tries to reproduce it."
    This one not may or may not be a bug. But since I own and run dozens of applications, and only CS6 is freaking out constantly, I would say that it is not normal behavior.

  • Unable to save mpp 2013 file, error "the file cannot be opened"

    Using a local copy of Microsoft Project Pro 2013.
    Opening and editing mpp files created only with 2013, never using earlier versions or format.
    However, sometimes after opening a 2013 mpp file, working on it, then trying to Save, or Save-AS, pops up a message
    The file "project.mpp" cannot be opened.
    At this point is it IMPOSSIBLE to save the file in any way!
    Can't save or Save-As to any location on my computer or network.
    This is very frustrating to loose all the work done on a file. This happens in various files, never on specific files or anything else I can put my finger on.
    -----------The full error is as following--------------
    The file "project.mpp" cannot be opened.
    * Check that the file name and path are correct.
    * Check that the file format is recognized by Project.
    Project files saved in versions earlier than Microsoft Project 2000 can't be opened.
    If your file is from an earlier version, open in that version, click Save As (File menu), and save in MPX format. Open the MPX file in the current version of Project. When you use this method, project data is imported, but formatting is lost.
    Your kind assistance please,
    Thank you
