Your AMD/ATI video card driver is crashing. Update it from AMD's website.

It's not an atig6txx.dll problem! Driver work perfectly, even in Fallout 4, only latest Photoshop crashing (i just updated today, and previous PS works perfect). PS starts normaly, but if i call preferences (ctrl+k) or even call "open file" dialog box (ctrl+o) crash appear. It's ridiculous.

Yes, the crash shown in the original post was due to a bug in the ATI driver, and updating the driver from AMD/ATI's website should have solved it.
