Photoshop opens fine but every time I try to drag an image in or add an image using the open command, it persistently crashes. I've uninstalled, reinstalled while trashing the preferences and still no luck! Help!!! This is URGENT! Client's waiting for a file at this very moment.
That is crazy! The only thing that hit me while reading you post is you need a 'work around, this suggestion is not a fix. If the pictures are both one layer/group this could work. Open picture two first and 'Select all and Copy". Close and open picture one and then "Paste". That should bring the two together and this is NOT a fix.
