Photoshop - Red lines of doom?
show user profile  9krausec
So I'm doing a batch of real estate photos and all of the sudden some red lines started popping up (image below).. Soon after Photoshop would crash. Thinking it was my video cards (2x 560ti cards) I updated my drivers. The red lines would still pop up now and again.

I then switch my cards into SLI mode and that seemed to lessen the red lines, but they still appear. After dinking around with this issue I found out that the lines seem to only appear when processing 16bit images. If I toggle to 8bit then undo the lines disappear. Very odd.

Have any of you guys ever experienced this stuff? I tested my cards with a GPU stress test and they seemed to do fine so I don't think the cards are taking a poop.



Thanks for any replies on this. I'm on Photoshop CC 2014.

edit: I think it has to do with the drivers now.. Any recommendation on a stable geForce driver that you guys use for work?

Hi 9k,

I use a 560ti and PS CC and although haven't had that specific issue i do get very occasional glitchy/slurry mouse movements in Photoshop.. It's something that never happened before EXCEPT with the really bad drivers that came out a year or so ago. I'm 90% sure in your case it is also the drivers and would suggest just simply roll back to one of the previous versions and see if it fixes the problem..

[edit] Nice photo btw did you take that ( and is it actually a photo :P )?

Thanks for the advice. I rolled back to one that was suggested on some forum somewhere (for gaming).

Thanks for the photo compliment! It is apart of the real estate batch I recently took. I should post some of my photos on MF. The house I just got done shooting is on the market for 6 mil. Crazy stuff.

Just rolled back drivers and I'm still getting the same issue... Dammit.

Tomorrow I'm going to take the computer apart, clean it out and then re-seat the graphics cards. I've never had this issue before and it's frustrating as hell.

Well I cleaned out the computer, reset the video cards, messed around with drivers and spent a while researching this issue.

Still might be my video cards, but I'm thinking that this is an issue in PS more-so now. I'm going from camera raw to PS (opening a 16 bit image) and this problem only seems to happen when processing 16 bit images from camera raw. 8 bit is fine.

So that's that. Will work in 8 bit to process my real estate photos :/ 16 bit is nice to pull more information out of the image when splicing multiple images together (with different stops and processing in Raw), but I'm not wasting time with this garbage.

Cheers guys. Just wanted to give you an update.

So.. This only seems to be affecting a small group of people, but I wanted to give ya'll an update.

I rolled back drivers, still had the issue. I then rolled back to Photoshop CS6 64 bit and everything is working fine (as of the last 4 hours).. So although it might be driver comparability issues with 2014 CC, the issue is definitely on Adobe's end I'd say.. Just figured I'd share if any of you run into this issue.

Aside from the red lines, your room looks great!

Thanks! If anyone has any suggestions as what free service would allow me to dump a whole lot of photos at once I'll make a thread with some of my work.

I just don't want to have to manually copy and past a ba-jillion HTML snippets.
