  • How to make tables in Elements?

    Rather embarrassingly, I posted my feeble little request in the wrong place on Retouch. Ahem, so here I go again.

    I'm using Elements2 and I love it. A friend has asked me to make a calendar using a photo of hers. I thought this would be easy and was planning some nice designs. Now I can't figure out at all how to make those calendar boxes/tables/whatdyamacallits. I tried making a table in Word and pasting it in, but that was unsatisfactory. If I try to simply make a text layer in Elements with the calendar info on, the formatting is all to pot.

    Can anyone help please? Thanks in advance.

    Since going from Word to Elements isn't cutting it, maybe this will work instead.

    In Elements crop / color correct / do whatever you need to do to the pic(s). Save in .jpg format.

    In Word:
    * Create your calendar and whatever text you want.
    * From the Insert menu choose > Picture > From File -- and insert the .jpg (or .jpgs) you created in Elements. Use Word's tools to position, size, crop.
    * Save and print

    Will this work for you?

      Thanks so much for your reply. In the end, I got stubborn and laboured away with the grid in Elements on and MADE it work. Not the most efficient use of time, but I really wanted to keep the project in Elements in the end. But thanks for giving me a (much more sensible) solution! Appreciated.

      BTW, as someone who's fairly new to all this, I'm finding Retouch Pro a great boon.

        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...

        Elements 6 Updating.
        by Diya
        Every time I start up my organizer it updates. It usually takes about 3-5 min. to update. It has just started doing this and has never done it before. Anyone have an idea why it is doing this?
        Thanks, Diya

        Using Elements stitcher in PS

        I hadn't heard of this before, and I know many of you own both Elements and Photoshop (plus Elements is so inexpensive this might be worth buying it just for this), so I asked for permission from Daryl Pritchard to repost this.

        For those who don't know, Elements has an excellent panorama...

        I know its old but until today it has served me well. I am getting the following message:-

        An unexpected & unrecoverable problem has occurred because of a program error. Photoshop will now exit.

        I have tried reinstalling & rebooting but still get the same response....

        OK, first some history.

        I've been out of photography for quite a few years after having my own darkroom when I was in highschool in the '70s. Now I've gotten the digital bug and I have a Fuji Finepix and plan on getting a DSLR next year. I would like to get serious about this as a hobby...
