If you’re seeing this screen on CS5 when running Slice Like A Ninja… unfortunately we have no fix for you :( On certain machines, Slice Like A Ninja quits about 2/3 of the way through saying High Pass isn’t available. It’s an intermittent problem, and so far as we can tell, it’s a bug in Photoshop. There’s no reason for Photoshop to throw that error, as High Pass clearly is available if you hit “stop” and select it from the Filter menu. It just doesn’t make sense. The good news is that it seems ONLY to affect Slice Like A Ninja, and only on CS5.
We’ve filed a bug report with Adobe, but the ball seems to be in their court with regard to getting it fixed (it’s a baffling error). We mention it here just so that you’re not left completely in the dark, and we’ll update this article when we have more info!
UPDATE – 1/22/11 – Some users are reporting that re-installing CS5 fixes problems with CS5 acting weird – so that’s something to try. Let us know if you have any success with that!
