    Hi – thanks for your reply.

    Unfortunately the link does not solve the problem – it still crashes.

    I must wait until Adobe releases a new Lightning-Effect version, that will work on PSE13. (if they do???)

    I have an ooooold version Photoshop 7.0.1 that includes Lightning Effects – maybe I should try to install both programs on the same PC – this way I will be able to use the feature. I tried to make the files from PS7 work with PSE13……and it didn’t :(

    I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

    Kind regards

    Not sure if anyone can help. I was looking to buy photoshop elements 13 from my local store but didn’t as they said the license is for only 1 year. Does that mean I need to get a new license every year? If so how much is it each year?

  3. I have been an avid PSE 11 user for a couple of years now, but just did a trial of PSE 13 to see if I wanted to upgrade. My biggest disappointment was that the “magic extractor” was missing. I use this all the time to remove backgrounds to make layered graphics. Did this get moved? Or is there another way to still accomplish this? I would be all in for the new version if not for this :/ Thanx!

    Does Photoshop Elements 13 have a “clone” feature?

    I am currently working with Windows XP/Vista system. Will Photoshop Elements 13 download onto my system? Thanks so much.

    I have PSE13 and find that Photo Mail is gone. I want it back. I need to embed a photo in the body of the email, not as an attachment. How do I do that? Also, I’d like the background available in Photo Mail.

    • Greetings Jerry, this information comes per Adobe:

      Photoshop Elements 13 has a whole new email workflow where you can use any account (like Gmail, Yahoo, Microsoft, AOL, and more) for sharing your files via email. The email feature also resizes the photos so it saves you the time from having to resize them yourself and attach them to an email separately.

      The new workflow in PSE13 replaces Photo Mail, which was removed because it was incompatible with the new product support for 64-bit systems.

    Hi. I don’t know if this is the best place to ask my question or not, but I will try. I have PhotoShop Elements 4.0 for Windows XP. It was the most current version when I bought it. My computer skills are better than basic, but not advanced.

    After struggling to understand and use PSE 4.0 for a few months I paid for an on-line class to learn how to use a portion of the program. I have enjoyed using all the functions I was able to learn through that class and have kept a detailed notebook to refer to if I want to try to use a function that I did not use after taking the class and have forgotten how to use. It was very helpful.

    Since then, many new versions of PSE and Windows operating systems have been released. I continued to use PSE 4.0 with later versions of Windows operating systems when I had to get a new computer, twice. Currently I am still able to use all the functions I use most even though my current computer runs with Windows 8.1. I realize that PSE 4.0 is not intended to work with Windows 8.1 and feel lucky to be able to still be using it as much as I am.

    After saying all that, I would like to purchase a new PSE program that is compatible with Windows 8.1, but I am concerned that it will be so different from the version I am used to (PSE 4.0) that I will not be able to use it without significant help. Do you have any comments or suggestions that can help me to figure this out?

    Nature photography is a hobby for me, not a profession, but I take hundreds of pictures. I actively process my pictures, editing many and then sharing them with friends and family via Shutterfly. Primarily, I use lighting adjustments, cropping, cloning, the straighten tool, red eye tool (when it works right), and text.

    Thank you for any comments or suggestions you may have.
    Holly

    I’m upgrading my hard drive & Adobe Photoshop.
    Here’s what I have:
    Windows XP
    Adobe Photoshop Elements V4 (yeah yeah, I have obviously got my money out of this one!!)

    Here’s what I’m getting:
    Windows 8.1
    Adobe Photoshop Elements V 13

    My question is …… am I going to have problems moving my photo files over to V13?

    Appreciate any comments.
    Gail

    • Yes Gail, you should be able to move or migrate your photo catalog up from an older version of Photoshop Elements to the new PSE 13…

      Usually the catalog conversion will happen automatically for you – but for more details on how to do the transfer, see the Upgrade Notes in the Photoshop Elements 13 documentation.

      If you’d like to try it out first, then just download and run the free Elements 13 trial and see how it works for you… It will run side-by-side with your older version, without interference. If you decide not to purchase the software after the trial is up, then you can just uninstall it and everything before will remain as it was.

  9. Gail

    Wow …… answers coming in from all over the place. Thanks. And great job. Feeling a bit more comfortable now.

    Best regards,
    Gail

  10. SHANNON

    I see where it says “do you dabble? $9.99 a month” above – do you get all the features as if you were buying the software?

  11. Judy Bailey

    Your comparison chart is helpful, but not complete. I want to know what features in previous versions of Elements have been deleted from version 13. I’m using the Trial download of version 13, and have found a couple of missing (or dumbed-down) features, e.g. the Text Panel is no longer in Effects (or at least I couldn’t find it). What else has been deleted? Thx.

    Hi there, I plan on upgrading to Elements 13. I would like to know, when purchasing the upgrade on the Adobe website, it asks which version are you upgrading from. I have version 9 and version 11 of Elements.

    Can I purchase 4 upgrade licenses of Elements 13 while I currently own 3 of Elements 9 and one of Elements 11?

  13. Viviane

    I’d like to know the difference between Photoshop CS5/CS6/CS7 and Photoshop Elements 12/13, etc.

    And, what is the latest Photoshop for Windows 7?

    How do I check on my desktop to know my computer is 64 bits or 32 bits?

    What are the requirements in terms of Windows and bits for Photoshop CS and Photoshop Elements? How much does it cost for each of them?

    Thanks!

  14. Ed flebotte

    I have windows 7 premium, will elements 13 work? using version 10 at this time. thanks Ed

  15. brenda st martin

  16. Steve W

    What are the differences between 11, 12 & 13 in terms of RAW editing?

  17. ms

    Hi,
    Does photoshop elements 13 support photo stitching?

  18. shk

    I am not sure whether this is the right place to post my question. I joined an online course where I have to do some exercise files using elements 9 and I have bought Elements 13 recently. are they compatible? is there any pitfalls? Any loopholes to be concerned about?

    • Welcome SHK, you should be able to open/read files (PSD, TIFF, PNG, JPG, etc.) that were created/saved by older versions of PSE into newer releases of Photoshop Elements…

      So hopefully you won’t encounter any issues going from PSE 9 to PSE 13, but feel free to post back here if you do.

  19. Lynshiel

    I just upgraded from Photoshop elements 10 to Photoshop elements 13, where can I find the Magic extractor tool or is there something else I can now use instead that will do the same sort of thing?

  20. steveB66

    I have an extensive library on PSE8 on a Windows 7 PC and am thinking of going for a Mac. I have read a few conflicting pieces of information.

    Is it correct that the only way I could move my library across platforms is by installing a newer version of PSE on the Windows machine and then use the same disk (as newer versions are mac compatible) and then restore the catalogue to the mac?

    Or is all this a load of rubbish because I have also read that PSE does not have the library/organiser side on Mac??

    My photos are the key as to what I next purchase, so i could really do with some definitive advice please.

  21. Ineke

    Obvious questions probably, but after reading all Adobe help pages, I can’t figure out how to do this.

    I have Elements 10 for Windows, but have a new Mac computer. Can I migrate this to the new computer? and how do i do this?

    From a friend I got Elements 8 for MAC, but the serial number is not being recognised.

    Anyone out the who can advise on this issue to get Elements on my Mac?

    Thanks so much

    • Yes Ineke, please see the previous comment!

      Just keep in mind that you can never migrate from a newer version to an older release – the path must always be to the same version or newer… That’s because the Elements catalog format usually changes between revisions, and newer versions can read older formats but not vice versa.

  22. Anonymous

    I have pse 13 In editor I can not use the print functions without locking ps editor. I have to restart my computer to get it working. I can save and close and print from the organizer but….

  23. Max Harrell

    Will adobe premiere 13 do a better job processing my raw astronomy pictures than version 11 will?

    I use adobe premiere 11 and it does a great job on my raw astronomy shots, and now I see I can get Adobe 13 Premiere Elements for half price this weekend. Is it worth it just for the astronomy processing of pictures. I use DeepSkyStacker and stack from 5 to 50 pictures and then use adobe to fix the final picture.

    Sincerely,

    Max Harrell

  24. Kathy Shattler

    Will Photoshop open EPP files? I have Photoshop 12, do I need to update prior to installing Windows 10 or after?

  25. Steve W

    Photoshop Elements 11 would open RAW files from my Canon 7D, but not from my new Canon 7D Mark II. I tried updating 11, but didn’t have any luck. Elements 13 (after an update after initial install) does open RAW files from the 7D II.
