    Don't know where else this might go, but is anyone having problems with loading a large number of files into Photoshop cs5?
    I have a Mac Pro 2.8 8-core 2008 model, osx 10.6.4, and a gtx 285 graphics card and 16gb ram.
    Every time I try to open a large series of photos (not huge files but, say, 100 files or so) in Photoshop cs5, the computer screen goes into a flickering glitch and everything freezes. The only way out is to turn the computer off.
    This happens every time.
    It doesn't happen with cs3, which is also on the same machine.
    Can anyone please advise on whether this is a cs5 bug or perhaps a mismatch with my gtx 285, or even having both versions of Photoshop on the same machine?

    Couldn't say offhand as I haven't had the problem, but the first place I'd look would be scratch disk settings. If your settings on CS5 are different than on CS3, then change them so that they are identical. If they are identical, then maybe CS5 is using more and you need to add another disc, or make your first disc a much larger one (I never use my boot disc as a scratch volume if I can avoid it).

    Also make sure you've updated your CS5 to the most current, search the Adobe forums, and even run a RAM test; though seemingly identical at first glance, each version of CS seems to handle RAM slightly differently, so it's possible you have a bad or partially bad stick that isn't effecting CS3 but is effecting CS5. Unlikely, IMO, just a though...
