Opening PSD Path Error — Found Empty Paths

Recommended Posts



I'm having an issue opening PSD files created in Adobe Photoshop CC2018 via Affinity Photo v1.6.6.


I get a parse error when attempting to open the file, I couldn't seem to find any documentation of what exactly the error is referring to?

Hi Alphabet,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Can you please attach the PSD file here so we can check what's going on? I can provide you an upload link if you prefer to keep the file private.


Hi @MEB!


Thanks! Yeah, ideally via private upload if you could, it's a PSD passed onto myself from a designer so I don't really want to dictate public release of their work. I've checked with him and he's happy for private upload.


Once I know what the problem is I can re-create an example and attach it to this post for the sake of having an example in the thread for reference.
