Trying to paste an image copied from Quicktime 7 crashes Photoshop CS5.1. Text works fine, but an image copied from the current frame of an open quicktime crashes it. I can't even open Photoshop with the image in my clipboard. Thanks! bran@brandoughertyjohnson.com

Additionally, what kind of file are you copying the frame from?

Bran, thanks. I've asked some colleagues to try and repro (I don't have Lion on my laptop and I'm working from home today). If necessary, could you post the file you're copying the frame from if we can't reproduce with files we have?

Smart man, not sure the Lion upgrade was in any way worth it. ;)

The file is here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3857838/WORDS...

Thanks.

Lion's a new OS and has a few quirks, but I'm confident they'll get ironed out. I always recommend testing new OSes on a separate partition/computer before moving mission critical workstations to the new OS. While Apple and Adobe try to test and work out all the issues, there are always a few issues/workflows that aren't discovered until it hits the wild.
