Initially I thought it was a Photoshop problem, but I found it was also happening to Excel files as well. And it was only in the one folder.
I am a computer user, not a computer Guru, and as such, I can usually bumble my way out of trouble with the normal day to day problems, but when it comes to the technical stuff - I come up a bit short. However, reasoning that it was only happening in the one folder; maybe it could be a hard drive problem? Corrupted sector or something?
So, since my first posting, I have run chkdsk, created a new folder, moved the files across and then deleted the old folder. And it seems to have worked. I haven't had a problem since. Lets hope it stays that way.
Point taken about the cost of Photoshop products. Here in Australia, for some reason, software is very expensive. Must be because the electrons have so much further to travel. I first started playing around with Gimp and Inkscape, both good products, but not as good as Photoshop. You mention Serif products; to be honest, I have never heard of them. Just had a look at their website; maybe worth a follow up.
Thanks Chris you your help,
