Photoshop File not valid

Dec 12, 2013 by Karen
Hi there

I am working on a .psd file image for sometime now.  When I tried to open it again, I got a message saying that the process cannot be completed and it’s not a valid Photoshop file. I tried opening the file in a different computer and I got the same thing. How can I open my file?
Any help is appreciated
Thank you

Maybe it was not saved for backwards compatibility.   Depending on the type of CS you are using.  CS5 psd can open in CS6 However CS6 PSD doesn’t always open in CS5 if  the reverse comparability option was not checked at the time of saving
