    Default Photoshop Question/problem
    I'm using Photoshop 7.0
    Mt son downloaded some icons he wants to use so he asked me to change the colors a bit. No problem I say.
    The icons he has are already in a .png format.
    Mt problem is when I try to open them in photoshop I get this error message.
    "Could not open icon.png because the file-format module cannot parse the file".
    Tried opening them in other photo programs I have and samie same.
    I right clicked, went to properties and pointed the file to photoshop and still nada.
    It's not one file, it's a bunch. Ideas?

    Yup, I'm happy to see ya.

    I know it's old version, but I got it for free from my sister.

    Tried changing file ext. nope, no luck

    O'well, guess he'll have to find some different icons.

    Thanks for the help tho Him

    Yup saw you tweets. There was a thread on here a week or so ago and I remember HIM crying "Bogus", then much to my surprise (and enjoyment) there you are. Like your avatar too.

    Ok, back on.... so I went to the site and got some icons, downloaded again and still nada, same errors. I Thought he may have got them from a BS site, but it was ....whisper... mac themes.
    So do I need a newer version of photoshop? Seems to do what I need it to do but I'm just getting started with the program.

    Who does the MMI feed on twitter? anyone...... Bueller...... Bueller

    According to Wiki:
    Some image processing programs have PNG compression problems, mainly related to lack of full implementation of the PNG compressor library.[citation needed] These include:

    * Microsoft's Paint for Windows XP
    * Microsoft Picture It! Photo Premium 9
    * older versions of Adobe Photoshop.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
