I have a group of layered Photoshop CS PSD files that were saved on a Mac back in 2004 and then burned to DVD... most of them open fine now on this PC with Windows 7 in Photoshop, GIMP and IrfanView.
But a few of these PSD files open but only display a message on a plain white background that says, "This layered Photoshop file was not saved with a composite image"
in four languages.
Unfortunately I am in a location where I can not get back to the Mac computer and Firewire drive that these files were originally saved to and I am currently working on this PC with Windows 7, Photoshop, GIMP and IrfanView, but these files won't open here.
I'm wondering if anyone knows a trick, a bit of internal code editing, or any application that might get these files to open and display at least a flat version of what they contain, if not the full set of layers that were originally saved.
Thanks for any help,
