Sadly I only have Photoshop elements right now.
Does this mean I 1 – can open and use these design templates as “background” exactly as is? 2 -can open and maybe modify some of them, depending on PS techniques used? 3 – shouldn’t bother with this fabulous collection at all.
I’m not 100% sure what exactly you are asking. You are right that depending on the construction method of the file. If complex layer styles, masks and smart objects are used; unless you are using an updated version, photoshop Elements will not support the file and you will encounter some errors. Although you could import each layer separately.
Let me know if this helps, and feel free to contact me
Thanks for the reply.
I’ll try to be more clear. If I buy a template and the template uses bits that elements doesn’t have – is it the case that Elements simply won’t be able to open the file or can I use the “flattened image” as a layer but I am not able to edit the pieces that Elements doesn’t recognise?
SO I can use the result of that complex layer style but I can’t edit it.
