Hello, I have been working in PS CS3 (yeah, yeah, I know!) on these images for about 2 weeks with no problem. Just yesterday 3 out of the 5 images suddenly would not open and PS displays the message: Could not complete your request because an unexpected end-of-file was encountered. In Finder, the image's preview is just horizontal lines, they make my PDF fail from InDesign and in InDesign when I switch to Overprint Preview, they disappear. There is nothing in the InDesign Links panel that suggests a problem.

Does anyone know how to fix it? The filename extension is .psd and I can't see any difference between the 3 broken files and the two that still work.
Thanks for any help and advice :)

Sounds like the files are corrupted - e.g. missing header/footer information.

You might have some luck opening them in another program e.g. Bridge/Illustrator or even The Gimp, but otherwise I'd be looking for a backup...

Dammit! I thought that might be the case. I've tried other programs and it's no good. I've got a back up but I'll have to re-do a couple of hours of work. Boo! Could be worse though.

Have had it happen a few times. No way about it image is corrupt. Best to recreate.

Have had that happen myself with cs3. Learnt to save multiple versions, so every hours or so I would rename it to something else. Haven't had it happen in CS5.
