Re: Curve panel causes crash on PSE 15

The Classic Curves, which are a hidden feature of Photoshop Elements itself, are a bit buggy. ElementsXXL already blocks some Classic Curves dialog interactions to avoid crashes, but it could be that Classic Curves gets more buggy with every new Photoshop Elements release, which requires more fixes....

Re: 8-bit/16-bit workflow

16-bit editing has a big advantage when you need to make extreme corrections, e.g. when a photo was underexposed and you need to increase the brightness dramatically. If your photo has large area gradients, e.g. a sky that goes from dark blue to bright blue, it is usually also better to edit with 16...

Re: ElementsXXL freeze immediately after run

Sorry to hear that. Please uninstall ElementsXXL, then run Photoshop Elements, switch it to Expert Mode and close it again. Then install ElementsXXL again and run Photoshop Elements. Please let me know if this helped.

Re: Curve panel causes crash on PSE 15

Please let me know the steps for making the Curves adjustment layer crash. I need to be able to reproduce it. The CMYK and Saturation curves are only available in the Curves Filter and only appear for RGB images. Unfortunately there is no workaround for the Puppet Warp problem. Please press the Ente...

Re: Camera Profiles

By the way, if you use Photoshop and install your raw profiles in the default system folder for profiles, you can also choose your own profiles in Adobe Camera Raw. That does not work in Photoshop Elements though.

Re: Camera Profiles

At the moment MetaRaw uses Adobe Camera Raw opening the converted files in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, so it depends on Adobe Camera Raw what profile the final images uses. That's why you should set the same camera profile in MetaRaw and Adobe Camera Raw or a wider profile in MetaRaw (e.g. Pro...

Re: Rotate the clone brush?

The new Brush panel only lets you rotate the brush of the clone stamp tool, but not the clone source itself. Photoshop CC 2015.5 has a Clone Source panel for that. Anyway, you can nevertheless use a rotated clone source in Photoshop Elements with these instructions: 1. Duplicate the current layer 2....

Re: Rotate view tool in PSE possible?

Thanks for your suggestion. Unfortunately the Rotate View tool of Photoshop is not available in Photoshop Elements. It would be possible to add such a Rotate View mode, which you would have to deactivate again when you are finished. ElementsXXL would then rotate the image back, extract the newly add...

Re: Q re: ProPhoto RGB working space

Photoshop Elements (without ElementsXXL) only allows conversions to sRGB and AdobeRGB, but supports all other RGB color spaces, e.g. when you open a ProPhoto RGB file. ElementsXXL lets you convert between all RGB color profiles anyway. Setting MetaRaw Converter to ProPhoto RGB does not have any effe...

Re: Where is the Base Image in Prepare 8 bit document

ElementsXXL 3 split up the 16-bit image into two Base Image layers. ElementsXXL 4 now embeds the 16-bit image into a smart object. This has various advantages: 1. Having only one layer instead of two means easier handling 2. Rendering the final 16-bit image is faster 3. You can edit the content of t...

The pen tool is still there in PSE 15, but unfortunately it is not possible anymore to activate the slice, ruler and mixer brush tools (unless I find another way which I do not believe at the moment). ElementsXXL 4 offers some new menu items to compensate for the missing slice tools in PSE 15, so it...

Re: please help with 8BF 56 KB for PSCS6

The 56K plugins are very likely Filter Factory plugins that require plugin.dll, which is part of Photoshop. Some web sites offer this file for download, but it is illegal to do so and to use it. As it is part of Photoshop, so you need a Photoshop license. The above link to the Plugin Commander tutor...

Re: Plugin problem sorted

When filter menu items are greyed out it usually means that they do not support the current image mode. Almost all plugins support RGB images with 8 bit per channel. So change your image to that and the filter menu items will be enabled.
