Is it possible to recover the original psd file if a cropped section has taken the name of the main image from which the section was cropped?

I clicked on SAVE not SAVE AS and of course the crop assumed the original file name....Is there any way back

I was using Photoshop CS6, XP Pro

Many thanks

No, you can't get the uncropped image back now because it no longer exists.

You should always make a backup copy of your original picture files, then edit the copies, never the originals.

As a fellow Photoshop user I'm surprised you don't already work that way.

How to solve problem with probably corrupted .pst files:

Alternative solution:

>Open "My Computer" from your desktop. Double-click your hard drive.

>Open "Documents and Settings."

>Open the folder labeled with your user name.

>Open "Local Settings" followed by "Temp."

>Scroll down to the files beginning with "Photoshop" ("PS" for older Photoshop CS builds).

This will be followed by a series of letters and numbers.

>Double-click each "Photoshop" ("PS") temp file to open them in Photoshop CS. This is the only way to identify which temp file contains the project you wish to recover.

Luckily, because when Photoshop shuts properly it deletes its temp files, there should be no more than three or four.

>Select "Save As" from the "File" menu when you find the temp file you want. This will make the file permanent.
