Photoshop crashes when you use 3D features on a computer with an Intel HD video card.

This issue might be related to certain video cards. The workaround is to make Photoshop use a previous version of the Shader Model software, by installing the CS6_shaders.txt file below.

 

Download

Note: The file that results from unzipping acts as a cookie, and is appropriately zero bytes. 

1. Exit out of Photoshop.

2. Download the CS6_shaders.txt.zip file.

3. Double-click the file to unzip it.

4. Copy the resulting CS6_shaders.txt file into the Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 folder.

The default locations for the Photoshop folder are:

  • Mac OS: /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC 2014/
  • Windows: Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CC 2014/
5. Restart Photoshop, and perform the steps that caused the crash.
