Photoshop CS6: Transform tool image goes white when using it to modify image - win 8.1 pro

  • Problem
  • Updated 3 years ago
  • (Edited)
There's a graphic designer at my job who's transform tool always crashes lately whenever he uses the transform tool to modify an image. Every time he uses the tool, the image turns into a blank white screen. The Photoshop he's using is CS6 (original version, not the 64-bit).

We tried updating the video card drivers, clearing the computer cache, and updating Photoshop CS6, but nothing worked.

Here's the specs of the computer in question:

Dell XPS 8700

OS: Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit)

16 GB RAM

Video Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 745

HDD: Over 500 GB

My collaegue is using it, not me. I'm relaying his issues with it since he's busy with retouching images all day long. I'll get the info you need shortly.

Hi Cliff,

It might be more effective if we speak with your colleague.  Something is not lining up here.  We've had no other user complaints about this version and by now, if there were a simple issue, we'd have DEFINITELY heard something.  I can't help but wonder if there's another app on the machine triggering this issue.

A screen capture of the problem might be helpful.  A screenshare with the user more so.

Thanks,
David

Hi David, I uploaded a screen shot of the issue. If zoomed too far out the image disappears, and after zooming in the image reappears.

Howdy Antonio,

That really sounds like a video card problem.  It doesn't match the documented issues we've been tracking, but it sure seems to fall into the same category as other GPU bugs.  Is there any chance you have another video card you can try?  I've a feeling your problems would disappear.  I'm not trying to weasel out of helping you, but particularly with this new info, it really seems to indicate the problem is hardware-based.

Thanks,
David
