Hi, I've this problem...
I've 5 screens to capture (printscreen) and paste on a new canvas in photoshop namely 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd' and 'e'.
I captured 'a', paste it in photoshop saved it and closed it then I capture 'b' then tried to paste it in photoshop, what I get is the screen capture of 'a'.
The only way I know to bypass this is to close photoshop, reload it again and paste the new screen capture.
Is there a better solution to this problem? Or is it due to insufficient memory? thanx
ps: I have 32mb RAM and using PhotoShop 4.0

hi,
thanks for replying,
I tried purging the clipboard as suggested but it introduced a new problem and that is I can't paste anything new to photoshop.

Racquel,

I have the same problem, reinstalling the OS did *not* help.  It happened on different PC's and OS's.  Don't waste your time reinstalling the OS.
