Odd Behaviour in CS

    I've found an odd behaviour in CS, and I wondered if anyone else has
    experienced similar?
    After resizing an image to 630x420 pixels @ 72 ppi, I found I could not
    use any brush tools on it, without receiving a "could not complete your
    request because of a program error" In several instances, it crashed PS
    I deleted the prefs file, tried reloading the brushes, tried different
    images....all of them resulted in the same error.
    The odd part is that at any other dimension, say 640x426, everything
    works just fine. I've experimented with this for a while, and have yet
    to figure out why 630 pixels seems to send the program into a fit...any
    Best Regards

    Odd behaviour indeed. I tried re-sizing an existing image to 630x420x72 in CS2
    (note Two) and was able to use every tool, with not problems. OS=XPmce SP-1,
    3.4GHz, 2GB RAM. I will try this on a CS machine later today, to see if any
    problems exist. As for what is happening to you, I do not have a clue. If I
    get any similar problems in CS1, I'll let you know.

    Meanwhile, good luck,

  3. Same here - CS on WS2003, P4 3.2GHz, 1GB RAM, HT enabled.
    Also at 630x419. I can't be bothered to try any other sizes.

    The application event log blames MMXCore.8BX:-
    "Faulting application Photoshop.exe, version, faulting module
    MMXCore.8BX, version, fault address 0x00028238."

    Disabling that plugin by prefixing its name with ~ before starting Photoshop
    stops the error.

    Thank you all for your time and input. This reminds me of the old
    Rodney Dangerfield joke:

    "Then don't do that."

    By Crom, that's weird.

    Same problem for me (PS CS, Win XP HE SP2).
    It even does the same if I just create a new, blank image with 630x420x72.
    Brush and eraser tools give that error, gradient and crop do work (then the
    cropped image shows no problem).

    Incidentally, I tried changing dpi to different values (100) and same
    problem at 630x420, and also tried resizing to 631 wide instead of 630, same

    So is this a known bug, an unknown bug, or simply and undocumented feature
    :) ?

    A couple of versions ago, I think it may have been 7, or possibly 6,
    there was an MMX related problem which made Adobe release a .01
    upgrade. It was specifically an MMX problem related to Intel chips. I
    wonder if it's been broken in this latest version?
