Adobe cs4 could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of doc

I am getting this error when trying to open a normal gif file with photoshop:

adobe cs4 could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document

any idea how to fix this? thanks

HI,

I think the file is corrupted or not downloaded properly. There is no such type of fix for this issue. Instead of opening it in a normal way try “open as” option.

Hope this helps,
Cheers,

Tried that too, unfortunately still getting the same error

try opening another gif and see if it happens. If it does not, then the file you are using is corrupt.
