Do you have InDesign? If so, see if you can place the corrupted PSD file and then export it as either a PDF or JPG, (I personally prefer PDF for quality). If this works you will at least now have your flattened version of your PSD. Then open that up in Photoshop and create a new layer and carry on. Good luck.
Better solution: record action in panel Actions (add key for this action - for example F2): Actions step: select something on artboard (object, two object etc), press Ctrl + C (copy), press Ctrl + N (create new document), select "Insert menu item..." from Actions panel menu (right corner in Actions panel) select file->save for web stop recording actions ...
If you want it just for a quick thing, you can always use double layers one for the square and one for the stroke, select the strokes and apply the "erase" blend mode, change the background to transparent and save for web, done. Another method that might work if the squares will be only one color is to use the convert to alpha live effect, I use this pretty ...
I suppose that the priority for you is to keep that transparency after exporting this file to the pdf format. I can't figure out why but definitely you want to. Because if you don't, you can duplicate this file, merge all layers and export once again without any transparency.
Quit the Adobe programs and relaunch Finder. Alt + Cmd + Esc (Mac) Works great without restarting computer.
In this specific case vectorization is not just easy its brain dead easy. Just: paste image in illustrator hit the live trace adjust live trace settings to 4 colors and set path fitting to 0 px Ignore white on expand object -> path -> simplify Angle threshold to 90 Straight lines. Now there is only one kink in the darker of the two transparent areas ...
Alright the lazy way: Open the first screenshot with the white background in photoshop. Magic Wand on White Delete Delete the Background Layer Save For Web End result with the History showing: I suspect you can do this in Fireworks too but I never touch that. I agree with others though that doing this in Illustrator as vector would be a better option. ...
Duplicate the entire group of objects. On the duplicate set, make all the squares 100% opaque and change to color to black, leaving the white stroke. (You can simply add a blend of color overlay). Add a full-white layer below for easier alignment, then flatten all the layers of the duplicate set along with the new white layer. You should now have a black ...
Your best bet is to use your current work as a guide and recreate the squares using opaque colors. This will also alleviate your intersecting problem. Create guides around your squares. Create squares using the selector or shape tool (vector might give you longer mileage)
As @llan answered, you can use the Convert Anchor Tool to click-drag two symmetrical handles out from an anchor point. If you already have two non-symmetrical handles, or just one handle and want a second one, Illustrator provides no method to easily match two (or more) non-symmetrical handles other than this click-drag option of the Convert Anchor Tool. ...
If you want the handles to be "similar" the first thing you do - you press Shift+C (Convert Anchor Point) and click once on the point of interest: you had a smooth point (otherwise it has no handles) and converted it to sharp one. Next, you click on the point of interest the second time and begin to drag to desired direction - by this action you convert ...
GRAIN is used by photo manipulation softwares such as Photoshop Lightroom to mimic film grain. And it's a very good way to bring back a sense of texture and sharpness to an image suffering from NOISE. Especially if the de-noising tools are used. When well used, grain can greatly repair a noisy picture and make it a very nice one. Used on a too-much-scaled ...
