  1. Hello, I am a novice and getting better every day. It’s time to upgrade from my iPhoto, but I tried Photoshop and it’s way over my head. I’m thinking Elements might be more user friendly. Here is my question: there are two things I would like to be able to do during processing and can’t do in iPhoto. One is make selective enhancements, choosing a bit of the portrait here and there to make highlights or shadows, only not on the whole picture. The second thing is to make images in the photo “disappear” or layering. I would like the option to remove unwanted people or things from photos.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’ve asked my photographer friends, all of whom are tech-savvy and use Photoshop, as well as researched on the Internet but couldn’t figure out if Photoshop Elements or even Premiere Elements would be able to do these things.

    Thank you in advance for your prompt response, I’ve got a huge amount of processing to do. :)

  2. Hi, I recently purchased photoshop elements on discs. My computer just crashed and I’m wondering if I can redownload to another computer or will I have to completely rebuy the disk set, I am so sick about this. Thanks so much.

  3. Hello, I just recently had to buy a new computer. I had Windows Vista and Elements 7. I now have Windows 8. I’m assuming Elements 7 is not compatible with Windows 8. Could you please tell me how to make the upgrade?

    Thank you.

  4. I have 600 pictures i want to put in a book. I thought contact pages would be good so i could put many pictures on a page. Can I do that in photoshop elements 9?

  5. I have PS elements 8 with several plug-ins that are added to it. If I upgrade to PS elements 11 or buy version 11 on disc, will the plugins be retained? Thanks

  6. Photoshop Elements 11 advertises “photo merge.”
    Is this a photo stitching program that will make panoramic photos?

    Does PSE 10 offer the same feature?

    Are there any features that Photoshop Elements 10 had that Photoshop Elements 11 eliminated, without replacing it?

    Reply
    • That’s right Edward, the Photomerge Panorama command in Photoshop Elements is about creating panoramas from multiple images – see the documentation for how to do it:

      Photoshop Elements Help / Stitching together panoramas

      And here’s a brief demonstration video that may also be helpful:

      As for the second part of your question, there was a lot added in Photoshop Elements 11 vs. 10 (as described in the article above), but no features taken away that that we’re aware of.

      If you’d like to try it out, just download and run the free PSE 11 trial and you can get started right away.

      Hope this helps!

  7. I used Photoshop Elements 6 and was satisfied. Then upgraded to 9 and it keeps locking or or is very slow opening things. Frustratingly slow, so slow I do not want to use it. Is version 11 any better?

    • Not sure Michele, we used Photoshop Elements 9 on one of the systems here until recently, and have had no problems at all… Upgraded to Elements 11 which we’re also happy with for what it does.

      Your best bet may just be to download the free trial for Elements 11, install it on your system and see how it goes… There’s no cost, and you can run the two versions alongside each other to evaluate, and just uninstall the “loser.”

  8. Hi, I have a copy of photoshop elements 6 ( not registered ) and I wish to upgrade and buy elements 11. My question is will I have any problems with transferring my albums etc from 6 to 11. I run Vista. This a great resource by the way. Well done.

  9. I was wondering if you can do touchups on faces like blemish removers? Also does it have effects you can use besides the comic books and pencil effects?

  10. Hi,

    If I upgrade from my Elements 7, to the 11… can I use masking in this? As you don’t have it in 7 (though there are ways around it I have seen on youtube, it’s not the same thing) .. and also, the upgrade discount.. I clicked the link and when the Adobe products come up… It doesn’t say Elements 11 as an option? and it’s all this student and teacher stuff I don’t understand?

    thanks carli

    • Yes Carli, Photoshop Elements does now include the the long-awaited Layer Masks functionality, and you should be able to move up from any older release of Elements (versions 1-10) to Elements 11 and receive the upgrade discount. You don’t have to be a student or teacher, all prior customers qualify.

  11. Hi – I really like Elements 11 but have run into a major problem. Elements 11 only supports 25 Scene markers, and I often need way more than 25. I already created several projects and have been extremely happy with the whole workflow and the final output, but I finally ran into the 25 marker limit. Elements v7 did not have this 25 Marker limit, and I was wondering when Adobe changed Elements to the 25 Marker limit. Specifically, do you know if version 9 had this 25 Marker limit – I have the opportunity to purchase a copy of v9 and would like to do so if it supports at least 99 Scene Markers. Do you know how many markers v9 supports; I cannot find any reference to maximum markers anywhere.

  12. My computer was recently stolen. My employer has provided me with a new one. I would like to install PS Elements on my new machine. Can you tell me how to recover my license code and where I can locate the version of PSE that I can download?

    Thank you,
    Jay

    PSE 11 cannot open .eps files as vectors. This feature was present in PSE 10 and 9. There is a fairly useless workaround, allowing you to open vector files as .TIFF, but then you lose the resolution and the whole reason for using a vector file. I’m thinking of returning my PSE 11, and trying to order a PSE 10. If anyone has any other ideas on this, please share.

  14. I am running Windows 8, 64-bit. Had a hard drive failure and am stymied in trying to install my PS Elements 9.0 & Premiere Elements 9.0. I had them installed on my crashed hard drive.
    Now, when I try to install, it gets so far in the installation process and then undoes itself.
    Why? Please help.

    • Hey Mark, you mean now that Photoshop Elements 13 is out?

      Yes, there could be value, because Photoshop CC and Photoshop Elements have different target markets. Photoshop CC focuses on mostly anything and everything you can do for gold-standard image manipulation, whereas Photoshop Elements centers on how you can improve and use your photos practically in your life (like mashups, sharing, albums, slideshows, books/cards/calendars, etc).

      So at the simplest level, Photoshop Elements began as a basic, scaled down version of the full Photoshop – but their featuresets have diverged as Elements is all about home & hobbyists while CS/CC is all about professional-level work. Most people, of course, do have both in their world.

      This comparison guide generally explains it further and gives more details:
