New to Elements 7


I'm an After Effects using that wanted to be able to import PSD files with layers and Elements seems to work well (which is good since I can't afford PhotoShop right now).

However, I see that when working in Elements, I can't pull guides from the rulers, which is something I've grown acustom to in other programs. Are there guides for Elements 7? Do I need the tools that are specified for the earlier versions of Elements?

Hope this makes sense and sorry if this a NOOB question. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

AE and many other applications have moveable guides, usually pulled from the ruler. I see PhotoShop Elements only has guide presets and doesn't seem to allow for the movement of the guides. A grid is usually a visual annoyance, to me.

Anyway, Ulead Photo Impact has moveable guides and I believe PaintShop does as well.

Am I missing some setting within Elements or does it simply not have guides that can be dragged onto the workspace?

Re: New to Elements 7

there are no guides. I can make guides appear, but Adobe, in their infinite wisdom, has chosen to make even those uneditable. That is, you roll over a guide and you will not be able to move it once it is in place.

I could make a routine that creates a guide that would be an image object rather than a non-printing guide, and/or I can make the guides I can do (you have to assign a placement via a dialog) but you won't be able to move them.

Let me know if you are interested.
