When uploading a new file into Photoshop CC the tab loads but there is no picture showing. Any ideas how to fix this? This happens whether I try and upload from Bridge, New File, or open from Lightroom. The picture will show up in the Navigator area but not in the work space area. Help!

You don't upload files in Photoshop.

Do you mean that the document window shows, but nothing draws in the document window?
That's usually a problem on Windows with out of date video card drivers - updating the drivers from the GPU maker's website usually solves it. If you cannot update the drivers for some reason (like a locked down laptop), then try turning off GPU drawing in Photoshop's preferences and restarting Photoshop (just a workaround to avoid calling the buggy driver code).

I had a recent update to my GPU. That update must have screwed something up because when I turned off the GPU in the preferences everything was back to normal. Now if I can just figure out how to uninstall that update I'll be back on track.

Thanks again Chris!

First, try updating to the latest driver from your GPU maker's website. If that has a problem, then the GPU maker needs to be informed so they can fix the bug.
