  • Missing PE2 Menu Item

    Does the installation of Hidden Power Tools change the standard menu commands in PE2? I was trying to check to make sure I had turned off any color management in PE2 and I cannot find the Edit>Color Settings command any more. Or has my copy of PE2 been corrupted? Thanks.

    you aren't on OSX on a mac by any chance are you? 'cos there it isn't under the Edit menu but under the Photoshop Elements pull-down menu. (It confused me no end at first!)

      Thanks Susan!! You're absolutely right, there it was. I thought I had looked there, but obviously I hadn't. Yes, I'm using OS X on a Mac G4. Thanks again!

        Um, just to keep the record straight:

        Hidden Power does not alter the Elements interface in any way beyond adding a link in the How-To palette for accessing the Hidden Power tools. The tools do nothing to alter the base package of Elements -- which would require cracking code. That would be illegal.

        Everything that Hidden Power does is simply access functionality that Adobe has made available and which they have tested to their satisfaction before release. This may include creating complex events in a series, but nothing that would affect Elements functionality.

        Hope that helps.

          Accessing Hidden Power Actions II from Recipes

          Because of the difference in implementation between Elements 1 and Elements 2, making that access was a bit of a Kludge. I'd either have to provide separate installers for PE1 and PE2, like in the book, or provide a simple patch for Elements 1 users. I chose the latter because you can access the tools...

          Hidden Power for Elements 5.0?
          by Don26812

          I have the book and the tools for Photoshop Elements 4. I now have upgraded to Version 5. Will the tools work with PSE 5? On the surface it appears that they do not, since there does not seem to be a Previews sub folder.

          If they don't, will there be a revised set...

          Hidden elements 4 tools with PE6
          by euclid47
          I have PE4 plus the hidden tools.
          Question: If I buy PE6, do I have to uninstall PE4 and the hidden tools first?
          Can the PE4 hidden tools be used with PE6?
          Is there anything else I should be aware of?

          Installing Hidden Power 7

          Hi all. I have just upgraded to Elements 7 and a machine running Vista. I previously ran Elements 4 on XP with Hidden Power 4. I tried to install Hidden Power 7 Free Tools but cannot find the Photo Creations/photo effects folder or the MediaDatabase file. I tried looking for them as hidden files as...
