Layer style problem in Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended


One of the following reasons may cause this error message;

  • Corrupted Photoshop preferences file
  • Some internet connection problem
  • Problems related to printer issues;
  • A communication problem with the printer that is set as the default printer
  • Out-of-date, incompatible or damaged drivers
  • Conflicting permissions or other issues with your network connection
  • Reading problem of metadata information (only for PsCS2 and Lightroom)
  • Corrupted font cache

Less Memory.

1. Recreating preferences file:

Hold down Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Command+Option+Shift in Mac) while starting up Photoshop Click Yes to the message, "Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings file?" (this will reset your Pshotoshhop preferences to default).

2. Disconnecting the internet connection: Disconnect from the modem or disconnect the ethernet cable from your computer.

3. Printer issues (generally for Windows): You may try one of the following options;

Update your printer drivers (this is important if you are running Windows Vista) Change the default printer; Choose Start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes (Windows XP) or Start > Control Panel > Printers (Windows Vista). Right-click on the printer icon that is connected to your computer locally (not via a network), or right-click on the icon for a document printer, such as Adobe PDF or then Microsoft XPS Document Writer. If no local printer or document printer is available, try the next option below.

In the menu, select Set As Default Printer. Install a dummy local printer (if no local printer or document printer is available in the Control Panel)

4. Font cache issue (generally for MAC): Uninstall the extra fonts (if you can find the corrupted or duplicated font, just remove that one)

5. Less memory :  Check how much RAM is allocated to Photoshop. In PhotoShop click on edit/preferences/performance. To get the benefits of CS6 you really need 64bit OS and min 8 g of RAM.
