Solve Photoshop Issue Cannot Complete Request Caused By Missing Resources

“Hi all, I guess I am having some serious issues with my Photoshop application. I had lost few days of work due to a random bug. So I spent whole day and worked in Photoshop to catch up lost work. Then I saved the PSD, closed the file. Later I tried to reopen it to do some changes and I got an error that stated “Could not complete your request because the required resources were not found”. Now I am unable to open my PSD file. What does this error mean and is it possible to resolve this problem?”

Yes off course! You can resolve this problem. This error typically indicates that certain resources are missing, so application cannot process further and hence it cannot open your PSD file. Missing resources might be related to Photoshop application or to respective PSD file that you are trying to open.

So first check whether Adobe Photoshop application requires any updates, driver software etc resources. If yes, then do it. Later try to open your PSD file. If it still fails to open then try this solution:

  • Convert all layers to Smart Object
  • Then right-click on Smart Object
  • Click on Export Contents
  • Name the file with .PSB extension and Save
  • Quit Photoshop application and re-open

Note: If Canvas is extended than the original canvas: find and select original background layer then Crop it.

If this technique didn’t help you in fixing issue, then lastly verify whether you are facing issue with all Photoshop files or only with this PSD.
