New products not working 1100 kroner out the window

Just bought PS elements and Premiere after waiting and waiting for the new edition.
4 hours download time. I have slow connection.
Long installation process. Big program, yeah!’
And then error upon error. Nothing works.

Never again Adobe.

    Thanks for the feedback Christian, I’ve also responded to your Amazon.com review.
    Would love to help you out if I could get more information on the errors you’re receiving when trying to install PSE.
    Also, are you on Mac or Win?

    Blogs or Amazon reviews aren’t the best support venue, so I’d recommend emailing me directly at petgreen [at] adobe [dot] com.

    Regards
    Pete

      So I have been reading a lot of the comments below as I have my own photo company and looking into different soft ware I used this in school a lot of years ago and liked what I was able to do with it but I see there about 3 possive things to like hundreds of negative. So I dont understand the big issues as I just bought a brand new system to edit my pictures and it seems like I should move onto other software as you guys are more trouble then its worth. I am looking for something user friendly and something that has back drops for sports and school portrait shots. Also something that has green screen and such what can you tell me about this new 12 version as in easy to use and remove backgrounds even if its not green screened. As well easy to edit and can find and download more back grounds and such? Thanks for any info in helping me decide if im staying with adobe or if I need to look else where.

      Cheers

    Hi I am really struggling with the adobe 12 – can’t get it to work – I have been trying for over a week now it worked on the trial but when I tried to add the full version – couldn’t get it to work – I have removed the lot and redownloaded it three times to no avail – I have been on the support site twice morming and evening to be told contact between 9 and 5 tried to ring after 9 got placed in a queue after pushing buttons for over 5 mins. _ Ihave used premiere 3 for years with no problems and just because I have had to change my computer, I am getting all these problems – need support and can’t get it!!!!

I would have bought Photoshop Elements 12 tonight if it had the channel mixer and more of the adjustment layers I need to use but it does not. I do photography as a hobby only and just need a handful of tools to be happy with. New features… don’t care one bit about them as I’m more interested in lower cost than things I can live without/don’t need.

    Thanks for the feedback Jason, sorry to hear it’s lacking a feature you really wanted.
    I’ll pass the feedback on to the team.
    Regards

I usually feel compelled to purchase the latest version of software I own and have been anxiously awaiting the release of Photoshop Elements 12 & Premiere Elements 12. After downloading and installing the 30 day trial version, I’ve learned there is not one new feature that interests me. I’d hoped for the ability to directly upload photos to Google’s Picasa from Organizer. That alone would have been sufficient for me to upgrade. One Premiere Elements feature that I do use, SmartSound, appears to no longer be integrated. Guess I’ll have to stay with Photoshop Elements 11 & Premiere Elements 11 for at least another year.

    Thanks for the feedback Don — I’ll pass the request on to the team.
    Regards

I NEED SPANISH LENGUAJE

ME GUSTA EL PROGRAMA DE ADOBE FOTO SHOW EN ESPANOL

I have just downloaded (and paid for) the PhotoShop Elements 12 upgrade download offer that appeared on my MAC PhotoShop 11 program. The download that arrived was the Windows version, which is totally useless on this machine. There is absolutely no way to get any assistance or response from anyone at Adobe, so if you opt to download an upgrade offer on your MAC, you’re screwed. You have been warned!

I bought PSE 12 the day it was released because I needed some of the features I had seen on a trial of version 11. But now I can’t see how to make a PSE file with multiple PDF images. This was available in PSE 9 and I have used it a number of times to create a single file to get a book printed or make a PDF document. Am I missing something or is this a backward step in release 12. I probably wouldn’t have bought it if I had known this feature had been removed. Any suggestions please?

i will try it :)

Just updated to elements 12 from 11, and it says it will not work with my current Mac version. I have checked for an update and Mac says my computer is updated. ???

You’ve done it again – released software that does not work on my laptop – tells me my display driver is not compatible – all my drivers are up to date – the trial version does not work so there is no way I am going to buy the product – as usual support from Adobe is ZERO and info on forums seems to point to many others suffering the same problem – very disappointing – you still have not sorted out this problem and insist on blaming our pcs. Funny how other companies’ software works without a problem!! Disgusted

    Sorry you’re having trouble. Which video card are you using? Have you gone directly to the manufacturer’s website and downloaded the latest display driver? Updates tend to be released frequently and are worth checking into if Windows update doesn’t report a newer driver.

    If you still need help, head here for support from the team: http://phtshp.us/AskAQuestion

    Regards

      I have installed, uninstalled, returned to a previous restore point, installed, checked drivers for both display cards, gone to the websites and downloaded the absolute latest versions, all to no avail. If I disable a card the screen resolution goes to approximately 640, and I can’t even see the entire interface…
      None of this happened with either 11 or 12 trial versions.
      Please provide a link to the fix, because it is on your end…

Unless I missed it, version 12 of Premiere Elements still does not support 3D editing. I’ve used Premiere Elements since version 2 (with many upgrades along the way) and was hoping to stay with Adobe to edit video from my new 3D camcorder. Unfortunately, I am going to have to switch to a competing product. I know the pro version of Premiere supports 3D but at over $200 per year for a subscription, I really don’t want to pay for my software over and over and over just to edit family videos. Hopefully I’ll be back with Adobe with version 13 of Premiere Elements if it finally supports 3D and I won’t have to pay for it more than once.

    I am in the same situation Barry. I would prefer to stay with Premier Elements, but until 3D is supported I am using a competitors product. I will also hopefully come back in release 13…

Thank you. very article.

It’s looking good – though I only bought version 11 two weeks ago :(.

Photoshop is getting better and better, and I love the ease of mobile album connection on PSE. Thank you so much!

    Thanks Midhunraj! Glad you enjoy the new features!

Pete, I have been dealing with your Customer Service regarding a free upgrade to Photoshop Elements 12 and Premier 12, since I recently purchased 11. I submitted “proof of purchase” and now they want to know the name and platform of my product. I have the bundled version of 11 that is compatible with both MAC and Windows platforms.
Yesterday I chatted with a Customer Rep who was obviously out of country. He could barely comprehend my question and there were long delays in him responding back to me. I think he was totally incompetent in his service.
He finally said that I could only have one platform, either Windows or MAC. I know that Version 12 has the programs which will run in both platforms. Obviously he was misinformed. I am still waiting for a response to my last posting on my Open Case after I provided the information that I have program CD’s that are compatible with both platforms.
Can you help? I will there was someone I could call in the US to resolve this issue. Spending hours on-line is not acceptable.

    Hi Roland,
    The disks have both Windows and Mac versions. The serial should work on both.
    Regards
    Pete

      Pete, sorry, I am still confused about whether I can install PSE 12 on my Mountain Lion OSX 10.9.2 AND my Win 7 pc. I have PSE 10 with lots of photos on the Win 7 pc, but I want to start using PSE 12 on my iMac. But I hoped to have the flexibility to use PSE 12 on occasion on the pc, since I am so used to it. Sort of a crutch until I feel confident on the iMac. Before I install on either platform, from my purchased DVD, could you help me know if I can do the above. I spent a long hour on your site and in the forums, and I’ve seen exact opposite answers. Thank you!

I still struggle to get the ”Open with” to function in PSE 11, opening from My pictures in Windowa 7.
When I choose “Open with” a second time the pictures show up. Can anybody help, please?
Could PSE 12 be a solution?
Aasmund

    Aasmund, I have the same problem with PSE 11 on my Win 7 machine but the trial version of PSE 12 on my Win 8 machine does not exhibit the problem. I can’t say if PSE 12 resolves the problem or Windows 8 resolves the problem.

    Feel free to download the Trial of PSE12 to see if it resolves it for you.
    http://www.adobe.com/go/tryphotoshop_elements/

I purchased PSE 12 and am trying to install but get an Exit Code: 15 Error with a summary that reads Error: Media DB Error: 12.

It recommends trying to reinstall again but still get the same result. When I click on Customer Support it has me sign into my Adobe ID which only takes me to the Creative Cloud support area.

What causes this error and where can I get real help?

Thanks..

    Hi Rob,

    Try rebooting. Otherwise, you can try either a different disk drive, or you can download the installation files (download the trial) and use the serial number to register once installed: http://www.adobe.com/go/tryphotoshop_elements/

    Regards

I have Elements 9 and now have a Nikon D800. The old Elements will not read the D800 RAW files.
There is a lot on the web about problems with Elements generally and D800 RAW.
I have three questions:
1) Can I download a 12update for the 9 elements version or do I have to start from scratch?
2) Does 12 have a licence that covers my use of the same programme on my MacBook and the iMac?
3) Will 12 handle the D800 RAW files?

I use a MacBook Pro and an iMac, both with the latest OS.

Thank you.

    Hi Paul,

    First, if you’re happy with PSE 9, you can use the free Adobe DNG Converter to provide D800 compatibility for older versions of our products including Elements 9: http://adobe.ly/ACRandDNG

    1) You can purchase an upgrade from Elements 9 to Elements 12 if you choose
    2) Any license provides two activations that allow you to run Elements on two of your personal computers.
    3) Yes.

I too looking forward to using my recently purchased Adobe Premiere Elements 12.
My laptop is 6 months old with Windows 8 and HP tell me all drivers up to date (latest available)

Problem -
Every time I attempt to open my Premiere PSE 12 I get
“ADOBE PREMIERE ELEMENTS” We have detected an incompatible display driver. To get a better and faster playback performance, please update your display.
Where do I go from here????
Martyn

Yesterday, I tried to place an order online to upgrade to versions 12, but got an error message when I hit PURCHASE which said my order did not go through.

I then called Adobe on the phone and successfully placed the order.

However, when I went to my Adobe account (thewrightway@cox.net) I saw both the phone and online orders are there.

The first, online order CO129950572 needs to be cancelled.

I called Customer Service but the voice who barely spoke English could not immediately help me … something about elevating this to a higher authority. He gave me a Case No of 211646937.

I only want one order.

I got emails about the phone order and successfully downloaded the two upgrades last night – but I want the charge for the first (online order CO129950572) to go away.

Hi Pete,
I have Elements 10 and am considering upgrading to Elements 12.I have a few queries. (Windows 7).
1. I have a Windows Desktop and a Laptop. Will one update apply to both computers ie will I just pay one price for the two.
2. Whether I buy the update or buy a new version can I only do this online or can I buy a disc?
3.Will the Camera Raw deal with NRW files? At present I have to use the DNG converter which is an extra step.
4. What are the Camera Raw changes from Elements 10?
Thanks
John

hEJ! I JUST BOUGHT ADOBE PHOTOSHOP AND PREMIERE ELEMENTS 11 ON AUG 28, 2013 FROM AMAZON USA. ENTER THE NEWEST VERSION IN SEPT 24…DO I QUALIFY FOR A FREE UPGRADE? AND IF SO, HOW DO I DO TO GET IT?…THANKS!

make it faster. I have 11 and it’s slow to load slow to view pics delete edit. super slow. my pc is i7 and ssd . we all have a thousands of pics and videos. we need software that can handle this quickly.

I just installed Elements 12. The opening window opens and seems to work properly (eg I can watch the tutorials) but I can’t launch either the Organizer or the Photo Editor.

Adobe photoshop elements 12 freezes and crashes constantly. It scrolls with uncontrolled speed through images, freezes when you try to look at them one at a time. I have a brand new Mac computer, there are no excuses for the problems I’m having with this software. It was a waste of money.

I bought PSE 12 from Costco. Keep getting error 1935 during install. I follow the troubleshooting directions but no help. Called Adobe support. They say the problem is with Microsoft. The box shows capability with windows 8. I was told to install .net framework 4 from Microsoft to solve the problem.. Microsoft download says that it already included in the OS so it can not be installed again. Is PSE 12 compatible with Win 8 or not?

    I’m running it on Win 8.1 with no problems.

I just purchased PSE 12. In Lightroom 5, can set up an Edit in Photoshop Elements.

When I try to edit a .dng or .cr2 raw image in PSE from Lr5, the first dialog I get asks if I want to edit a copy with Lr adjustments. Then PSE opens but no file(s) are loaded.

If I open the file directly from PSE 12, it will open (with Lr5 adjustments)… but that’s not the point.

Any ideas on getting the Lightroom 5 –> PSE 12 workflow to operate properly?

Hi,

Adobe did it again:
Why do you sell people products you know to be outdated?
I bought Elements 11 suite on August 14th and the next month you release version 12!
And now you expect me to buy a new update???
No way!

Well I this its alright. Well I cant say anything bad, but that’s probably because I didn’t the 11th.
Thanks

I just downloaded the trial version. Where is the clone feature? If this program does not offer a clone feature, please tell me which one will.

Hi I am really struggling with Adobe Premiere Elements 12 – I used the trial reasonably well, but when I changed to the full version things started going wrong – I removed it off my computer 3 times and redownloaded it, but I can’t get it to work – I have used Premiere 3 for years with no problems and if my old computer hadn’t died I would still be using it,I upload from a Sony mini dv camcorder through a firwire, I hope I don’t have to change my camcorder too. I can see the upload through the little screen at the front – but it won’t go to my timeline or save – I have contacted support twice to be told try again later when more technical people are there – I have been struggling for over a week now – getting nowhere – need help

Hi,
I am currently running Elements 8 and am looking to upgrade to the new version (Elements 12). At the same time I would like to edit some of the videos that I have taken and make AV presentations using my photos so I thought that I would go for the combined Elements 12/Premiere 12 package. As I only have a previous version of Elements but not Premiere can I purchase the combined upgrade package or do I have to start with a fresh install?

I updated from element 9 to element 12. I have tried to convert the catalog but no catalog is available to convert. HELP how to I find and then convert the catalog.

    Thought I would get some help with my issue.

Hi,
I just purchased Photoshop elements 12 for my new laptop. I was previously using 11 without any difficulties. Now with my new Ideapad complete with windows 8, 1T hard drive, 6 gb ram, and fancier graphics card the product is sooo very slow ehn nothing else on the computer is. Is there anything that can be done? I am very disappointed.

I’ve just purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements 12 Bundle Edition and I’m getting the following error message:

DirectX/Directplay could not be intialized. Please be sure that it is installed on your system.

I’m running Windows 8.1, so I assume it’s already installed?

any supprt suggestion would be appreciated.

    Directplay error under windows 8.1 simply solved.

    Go in windows te programms >> programmas and features >> setup windows ore somthing like that…..

    enable here windows directplay. Mostly this is off.

    Suddenly the organiser works…… Great.

After installing Premiere Elements 12 for Windows I tried starting the program. I received the ” … incompatible display driver … ” error. I have now updated the video and display drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled Premiere and still have the same problem. My system is a ASRock M3A785GMH/128M mother board with a AMD Phenom II X4 B50 (Deneb) cpu, with 8 gigs of memory. The video is on board and is ATI Radeon HD4200 (RS880). It has 368 MBytes of dedicated memory and has access to 3 gig shared memory. It’s driver is 8.631.0.0. What do I now have to do to get Premiere to work?
Thanks
JoeB

Installed premiere 12 and it says, I have an incompatible display driver.
But it ist the newest that I can get from HP.
I cannot use the program! Premiere 11 was running. Elements 12 is running!
lightroom 5 is running.
Claus

I love the fact that I can share my pictures across various social media; that I can move objects with ease; that I can add great depth to them; that I can carry my photos and videos with me wherever I go.

I’m currently trialling the free version of Elements 12 on a Mac. At the end of the thirty days do I have to buy direct from Adobe or can I download from Amazon who are about £20 cheaper than Adobe or will there be problems?

Tony

    You can buy from Amazon and just enter the serial # to activate.

I purchased Elements-11 with Premier 11 several months ago at Best Buy for my office PC. I’ve recently purchased a new MacbookPro without an optical disc drive. Is it possible to download and install both these programs from your website, Or do I have to pay an upgrade fee now that version 12 is released? Thank you.

    Hey you can get a external drive so you can add the programs by the cd and they are cheap as I picked up a blu ray one for $40. Plays recorded and burns eeverything as well as plays it can also do 3d so theres alot it can do for a great price. As well it not a no name it Panasonic and they make great products.

Hi
I purchased Adobe Elements 12 and Premiere 12 at Adobes website on the Internet for a special that is on. I signed in with my adobe id, and downloaded the bundle, I received a email with the links and serial numbers for the programs.

I installed both programs as listed on the email instructions, when I open the software for use, it asks me to validate the serial number, when I sign in with my adobe id, there message says, please connect to the Internet to validate!. This can’t be, because my Internet works fine. I work with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. Please help, the software says I only have 6 days left to validate.

Question on licensing, can I uninstall Premier Elements from one machine and then license it on another? I know I can use it on two machines but will the license transfer from one to another machine if I get new computers?

Thanks

I just purchased Elements12 in trying to download I am being informed my order could take up to 24 hours to process, I have never had to wait before , any ideas.

I bought Elements 12 recently and though the camera raw plug-in says it can convert .RAF files, it doesn’t. While I’ve moved on to another camera since these .RAF files were shot, I still have a lot of images in that format. What’s the solution?

    Is it a newer camera? Choose Help>Updates from Elements to install the latest version of Camera Raw for Elements 12.

I have never been as disappointed with a product as I have been with Adobe PS Elements 12. I will not be purchasing their products again. They don’t work properly and support is abysmal at best. I loaded the program from dvd and it still loads the trial version – -repeatedly. This is not good. So that was $120 wasted. MY MISTAKE.

    I’ll have someone contact you and get you up and running.

I’ve purchased Premiere Elements 12 to finalise a video project I worked on using the trial version. When I open it, it still has the “created with Adobe Elements trial version” statement across the video. How do I remove this?

Photoshop elements 12 works fine for me but all I get when I try to open premiere elements 12 is a box that says my display driver needs to be updated..when I try to update my drivers they say they are up to date. so this was a waste of my money. My laptop is only a year old and already programs will not work because they claim my drivers need updating..unbelievable.

    What card do you have? Did you go directly to the card manufacturer’s website? Just using Microsoft Update won’t get the latest and greatest.

Am planning to expand my photography business to include videography, and purchased the PSE 12 and Premiere Elements 12 package enhance my photo editng and to edit the videos. Unfortunately, Premiere Elements 12 will not open consistently; I get a blinking window where the shortcut is and the loading icon turns on and off indeterminately. Sometimes, if I “end task” in Task Manager and “run as administrator”, it works, but only sometimes. I have attempted to uninstall and reinstall 3 times, each time re-registering with Adobe. It seems to me the the 7-day lock up thing is happening over and over again, even though I register. PSE 12 works fine, and so I’m confused why one program works and the other doesn’t. When I got Premiere to work the first time, I edited a video of my niece’s Christmas Program as practice for pro work, but now I can’t get to it. PLEASE HELP!

Hi

I’m just getting used to adobe elements 12. I’ve been trying to get background portions of my home videos that are not relevant, to blur.

I manage to do it in the preparation stage but as soon as I render the completed project to save to my computer, the blurred portions turn up on the completed video in the wrong place, blurring out those portions that I DO want to keep.

Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?

Hi,

I bought PSE 12 and its a disaster. Photo Editor is not working. I wish I hadnt bought it. Never again!!

Well I read some of the reviews and now I am more confused. When I loaded the software I don’t know what I am supposed to do as I see there are two software versions and I guess one is only good for a few weeks, WHY? I want to keep a better record of the 3,000 plus pictures I have on my computer and I just want one program not two. Please tell me what to do and how to set this up so I only ve one program which will help me catalog, make different sets of still photos and possibly change the look of some of the photos

I purchased bundle Elements 12 and Premiere. I don’t understand why I need both. I’ve gone through the motions with both of them and they each appear to hold the identical photos. What’s more they have taken up too much space on my C: drive. I’m finding both to be complicated. I don’t want to ‘edit’ photos, I want a simple system where I can store and label my photos and videos. Maybe I’ll get creative at some stage when I’ve had some lessons on your product.

Can I delete Photoshop Elements 12 and go just with Premiere?

PSE12 Cannot get Organizer to work because it cannot initialize DirectX/DirectPlay.

How do I solve this problem? I am using Windows 8.1

This is my first time using this type of software and I am surprised to find it is completely un-user friendly. Honestly, just trying to do what I can simply do in Publisher but on a photo. I have spent hours and hours and hours trying to decipher how to do simple thinks like change a color from blue to yellow and still can’t get it done. Nothing works and there are no simple instructions to guide me. Very disappointed that it is so complicated. I bought this to help with a fundraiser I need to do and I just wasted money on this instead of generating donations to help us.

It appears Elements 11 was a lot more user-friendly for someone who is not a software expert and wants to do simple photo editing.

PSE12 I cannot get organizer to work, get message Directx/Directplay cannot initialize. I am using windows 8.1

I have tried three times to install my upgrade from 11 to Elements 12. First error message and rollback was due to some sharing issue. Followed the prompts and reinstalled. Second error message says a 1311 error and Data1.cab corrupt file…
I cannot get through to anybody on the provided live chat support. It is so frustrating… how can a company of Adobe’s size have the nerve to release a product with so many flaws and incompatibility issues?
Somebody, anybody please help me!!

    Hi Darren,

    Try downloading the trial installer and see if that has better luck with the installation on your machine.
    http://www.adobe.com/go/tryphotoshop_elements/

    If not — try creating a new administrative user account and installing using that user.

    Regards

I have paid for download of Premiere Elements 12 on current Windows PC. I understood I could use it on 2 computers. I also want to use it on my Mac. I downloaded the trial Prem Elements on the mac & tried to activate with my serial number for Windows version & it would not accept that serial number. I need it on both computers & paid good money for it. Help please. I also pay monthly subscriptions to Creative Cloud so am already giving Adobe lots of $s but Premiere elements not part of CC. Please help me register my Premiere Elements on Mac as well as PC.

    Hi Jan,

    The serial number for the PRE Windows installation will only work to register within Windows.
    You can install on 2 computers that are using Windows, but the serial will not work for Mac installations, that would be a separate license purchase.

    Regards

Hello,
Is there a disc for Adobe Photoshop Elements 12?
It seems that my yahoo for cell does not work. My opinion for/of yahoo, is not printable!!!!!!!!
I down loaded it to yahoo, CHROME and PC work with yahoo.
It is possible that I did make a mistake in ordering Adobe Photoshop Elements 12, as my Adobe experience has been with PHOTO SHOP ELEMENTS. The caveman edition!
Due to death of my PC, I could no longer reload it. It kept saying that I had to have Explorer/Windows 4 or higher.
I had been using Windows 7 with it, but the rebuilt PC does not recognize it. It was my favorite tool!!
I NEED HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
David Scott

    Hi David,

    Yup — You can download the installer for Photoshop Elements 12 here — It says it’s the trial, but during installation you’ll have the option to input the serial number for registration purposes.

I tried Premiere Elements 12. It’s good that one can use more than 25 menu markers for making a DVD, but PE12 fails in more basic a feature – one cannot change the style of a title after the 1st or 2nd titles style was changed. Sometimes it helps if I close the program and reopen it, but it makes it unusable. I might go back to PE10 or find another software to work with.

Wondering before I purchase does Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 & Adobe Premiere Elements 12 have the capability to add your own music? It does say it has a number of music scores in the program but I am making a graduation video and want to add specific music to it…. thank you,

    Hi Barb,

    Yes, Premiere Elements 12 lets you add your own audio clip for use with your projects, and they can also be burned to a DVD/BlueRay.

    Regards

Oh and can it be burned to DVD?

I have elements 12 and when opening RAW images from my Canon T5i, generally it will open them. After a few though, I get an error, that it a ‘program error’. After that it no longer opens them, just the error appears. I have read that opening them in the Camera Raw window and saving them creates a .dng file. This could help. The same thing occurs. I am using Windows. Vista, had elements 6 prior to this and had no problem like this. Thanks

    HI Eric,

    Are the files being opened off of the card? or have they been imported already to the computer?
    If you restart Elements does it allow you to further open your RAW files?

    Regards

I need to chat about my new purchase of elements 12 and can’t find where to do it on your website. Every time I try to share I get a message that requires a code. It also says the code will be e-mailed to me but the mail never comes. I have not been able to make elements 11 or 12 properly and I need some serious help.

Please respond because I am at a point where I guess I will just give up on elements. I have been a loyal customer of photoshop ever since elements 6 and everything worked flawlessly through elements 10. Once I upgraded to 11 and then 12 I can’t use it properly. I have been told by an Adobe tec representative the problem is with the interaction of Outlook and AOL. I just can’t get anyone to help me. Microsoft is useless and I need help. PLEASE! Tom Johnson

Hi Thomas,

Where are you trying to share to? and What code is it asking for you to provide?

Have you tried posting this question to our Elements forums?: forums.adobe.com/community/photoshop_elements

Regards
Pete

please let me know when you are about to release a product that works I tried so far
Acrobat 9 what is it about the black screed?? I tried fireworks what does it do I still am clueless I used many versions up to CS6 cannot use them you don’t provide linking or sites that can work with this product I tried Photoshop CS6 likewise I think it does no work why not a file system support network something???

I tried Dreamweaver … also I am disappointed cannot see the beginning cannot see the ending cannot see any support to adobe, acrobat or any other working tools … what is it could you create a new site something like Lynda.com to explain how this stuff starts stops or whatever … been working with this stuff a long time and nothing but disappointment what is about cloud why not a free version for people who would like to see 10 percent of the path you hurt more than help any professionals on your team??

I have adobe elements 9 and now have adobe 12
Can I keep both 9 and 12, or is there a problem keeping them both

For the past month, I’ve been using Photoshop Elements (upgraded from PSE6). Today, I installed a new copy of Premier Elements 11 that I had purchased, but when I attempt to open movies in PSE12 Organizer using Premier Elements, I’m told I need to install the trial version of Premier 12.

Is there a way to use my PSE 12 catalog with my just-installed copy of Premier Elements?

Thank you,
P

Just purchased Elements 12 and according to the load applet – a message was that software loading was successful. However, I have not been able to launch the Edit Feature, but can open the Organize Photos feature. Using Windows 8.1 operating system. Are we compatible? Or, what do I do to launch the Edit feature. I am familiar with Version Elements 10, but it’s on my other computer.

CLICKING on EDIT – Will Not Launch the Application like I have with Elements 10, I have tried multiple times. No Luck. What’s Next
