  • Layer Sets in Elements?

    Can we create Layer Sets in Elements? We can open Photoshop 6/7 files with Layer Sets, but is there any way to tap this *hidden element* is PSE? I have version 2 and have all Hidden Elements files (website and book) installed.

    I don't know if it is possible, and would have to look into it a little. Or I should say, I bet I can do it but it may be a case where the solution is more difficult than it should be, making it too cumbersome to use.

    I've got it on my list. Meanwhile, would you be interested in creating Sets or just splitting them out from files that contain them?

      I'm more interested in creating sets.

      When I am working on an image with a gazillion layers, I need help organizing the specific parts of the image I want to work on. For instance...if I am creating a snow globe, I want to make one set of all the globe layers and then make one of the wooden base layers.

      Maybe I don't have the right idea about layer sets, but I imagine being able to collapse a set to get it temporarily out of the way while I am working on another one. Or...being able to take one layer set from one image and use it in another. Am I dreaming?

        What's up with selective color, etc. in PSE 5?
        by Lemon Juice
        I have tried the free tools for PSE 2 and 5 and I am wondering why there is no selective color like it was in the tools for PSE2? It looks like something has been changed by Adobe, because I have also found some other tools for elements on other sites and the selecitve color, color balance...

        luminance masking with ps elements?
        by Brencam
        This is a great tutorial on luminance masking, but unfortunately requires full version of PS. This is a powerful way to make controlled image enhancements without introducing side effects (halos etc).

        Load/Save HueSat Layer... .ahu
        by 2003blink
        I found a specific Hue/Saturation Layer to use with my Camera. It's a .ahu file. To use this file created in Photoshop 7, I need the ability to "load" this preset, with a Hue/Saturation Layer.

        The tools from the HP CD, and the knowledge I am gaining, will soon provide me...

        I have Photoshop Elements, but I'm not sure what I'm lacking from the full version of Photoshop. A lot of the people on this board use a whole bunch of editing styles (I've seen the word 'curve' used before), and I don't know what to do.

        Have I missed a major tutorial? I feel so lost...
