Re: Vista

There is not necessarily a mistake. There are several other files involved, including a DB file that needs to rebuild--which may have to be deleted. Also, thing will never take effect without first closing out of Elements and re-opening at the very least.

Your abbreviated paths may suggest a variety of things, including that Elements gets stored differently in 5 (which I dd not check) and 6 (which I did). Instead of creating the path (which I think is a mistake), what happens if you search for "PhotoCreations" or "Photo Creations"? Is the followig path valid?:

C:\ProgramData\Adobe\PhotoshopElements\5.0\PhotoCreations\specialeffects

What is in:
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\PhotoshopElements\5.0\ ?

Answers to these will locate the issue.

Re: Vista

C:\ProgramData is not the same as C:\Program Files. The former is a vista format for the former C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\

Are you on Vista or Windows? The two as I have experienced are very different.

Re: Vista

OK. My mistake.

This is one directory:

c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\APDLogs\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Editor\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Flash Galleries\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Locale\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Music\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Slideshow Graphics\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\readme.htm
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\ThumbDatabase.db3
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\MediaDatabase.db3

And this is a subdirectory:

c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\artwork\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\photo layouts\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\samples\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\special effects\

c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\text\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\themes\


This is the contents of Photo Creations directory:

c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\special effects\filters\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\special effects\hidden power\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\special effects\layer styles\
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\special effects\photo effects\


And deeper:
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\special effects\hidden power\fREE from hiddenelements\

And there lies all Hidden Tools files.

Re: Vista

So, Suomalainen...

Are you telling me you have Vista and that Elements 5 installs over the old path:

c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\

?

I was assuming this was not the case as people who have vista and install Hidden Power tools for 5 have suggested that these do not show up in Elements. Do yours?

If this is the case, delete these two files and restart:

c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\ThumbDatabase.db3
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\MediaDatabase.db3

They will take a while to rebuild.

That should solve the issue...LET ME KNOW.

Well, that's good to know! I can get that up on my website in the troubleshooting for Elements 5 on Vista! Thanks for checking.

Re: Vista

There might be one diffuculty for Vista-beginners:

Directory C:\Documents and settings is very well hidden in Vista.

It took a long time to make it visible because I'm not an expert, I just try everything and sometimes it goes right. ;-)

SO, do not ask me, how I did it. :-)

Re: Vista

I can include that in the instructions...HOWEVER, you said the paths did not have "C:\Documents and setting" in them...You quoted:

c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\ThumbDatabase.db3
c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\MediaDatabase.db3

Please clarify!

Re: Vista

I do not understand, why the path wasn't right. I copypasted it and now it seems to be all right:

c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\special effects\
