Photoshop can't open/parse a file
I received several dozen Photoshop images on a CD. When I try to open some of them, I get a message that says "Couldn't open file. may be corrupt or an unrecognized format." OR, "Photoshop can't parse the file." I have tried re-naming the file extension to TIF and EPS but no luck. Is there a way around this or is it a corrupt file?
This happens to me all the time with .png files. Sometimes, the modules that parse files don't load properly. Close PhotoShop, and reopen it. If that doesn't work, reboot your system.
Also as an additional knowledge bases visit special forums for photoshop users or make use of instruments below:

1. Open "My Computer." In Windows XP, the icon is on the desktop. In Windows Vista or Windows 7, you must access this via the "Computer" option in the Start menu.
2. Double-click the "C" drive, followed by the "Windows" folder inside. Locate the temporary Photoshop folder, which will look similar to this: "Photoshop Temp6382948398." Double-click the folder when you find it.
3. Locate the file inside the temporary folder that matches the name of the corrupted file. Double-click it to open it in Photoshop.
4. Click "Save As" in the "File" portion of the main menu bar. Save it in a different location and under a different name.
5. If you can't recover .psd file, make use https://photoshop.recoverytoolbox.com/ Recovery Toolbox for Photoshop
