Photoshop CS5.1: Changing document to different setting to open

  • Question
  • Updated 7 years ago
I downloaded a kit that says I could open it up on Adobe photoshop or illustrator. I have both of the latest versions and every time I try to open this file on either program it says that it couldn't complete my request because it's not the right 'kind' of document. P.S. I'm trying to open the Submission Kit from Threadless. is the site's download defective or could I change the download to a different document setting? would I do that?

Apart from images Photoshop can embed movies and 3D-content and uses proprietary formats for brushes (abr), actions (atn), patterns (pat) etc.

What format exactly is that kit?
Is it by any chance a zip, sit, dmg, ...?

Was this caused by you trying to open a ZIP file in Photoshop (your second post)?
