    I'm using Photoshop 7.0
    Mt son downloaded some icons he wants to use so he asked me to change the colors a bit. No problem I say.
    The icons he has are already in a .png format.
    Mt problem is when I try to open them in photoshop I get this error message.
    "Could not open icon.png because the file-format module cannot parse the file".
    Tried opening them in other photo programs I have and samie same.
    I right clicked, went to properties and pointed the file to photoshop and still nada.
    It's not one file, it's a bunch. Ideas?

    lol....................
    Yup saw you tweets. There was a thread on here a week or so ago and I remember HIM crying "Bogus", then much to my surprise (and enjoyment) there you are. Like your avatar too.

    Ok, back on.... so I went to the site and got some icons, downloaded again and still nada, same errors. I Thought he may have got them from a BS site, but it was ....whisper... mac themes.
    So do I need a newer version of photoshop? Seems to do what I need it to do but I'm just getting started with the program.

    Who does the MMI feed on twitter? anyone...... Bueller...... Bueller

    According to Wiki:
    Some image processing programs have PNG compression problems, mainly related to lack of full implementation of the PNG compressor library.[citation needed] These include:

    * Microsoft's Paint for Windows XP
    * Microsoft Picture It! Photo Premium 9
    * older versions of Adobe Photoshop.
