Editing as usual, hid a few layers, then copied a texture image over directly from Google Images, the image never came over, just a blank layer.. which was alright, if a little weird, then all of a sudden the whole picture was corrupted like this.

Couldn't take it back to any previous stage, and even not saving and reopening the original file/restarting Photoshop STILL showed the image as being completely corrupt.

Does Anyone know why this happened?
Was it the image that I grabbed from Google?
I've never seen this before, I've been using Photoshop for a long time, and never had an issue taking texture pictures from Google for some backgrounds.
That file is now completely useless and had to delete it, good job I had a random backup.

THIS IS TERRIFYING!
Each preview of the image shows a different corruption pattern, from the thumbnail, to the quick view, to opening the actual file.

That looks at first like a video card driver issue - and MacOS 10.10 has several known video driver bugs that Apple is still working to solve.

Try disabling GPU support in Photoshop's preferences, then relaunching Photoshop.

Never thought about that, thanks I'll give it a try.
Hope they fix it soon! PS doesn't seem to like it being disabled.

Yeah, disabling that also disables features that depend on the GPU.
But those features require a video card driver that works correctly...

Yes, we're hoping Apple can fix all the 10.10 issues soon.
