Our templates can be used with Elements 6 and up, but keep in mind that Elements does things a little differently than full Photoshop.  We've tried to create workarounds so that you get full Photoshop functionality out of Elements. More details are below.

PSE Tool Kit

FOR ELEMENTS 11 and Up Only  |  Elements 10 and Below Tools Located Below

Super cool "action" tool kit to speed you along in Elements 11 and up.  Includes:

 

•  Handy "Add An Image" action which prompts you to choose an image, then places your image centered in the "opening" on the template for you – just resize as needed!

 

•  Amazing  "Replace An Image" action – if you change your mind, easily switch out images that you've already placed in the template.

 

•  Useful "Ungroup Layer Set" action. Some of our templates have layers that have been grouped to keep the layers palette nice and tidy. Elements doesn't normally allow you to ungroup layer sets, which can sometimes prevent you from being able to change text or colors on layers that have been grouped - this action allows you to access those layers.

ungroup layer sets

Some of our templates have layers that have been grouped to keep the layers palette nice and tidy. Elements doesn't allow you to ungroup layer sets, which can sometimes prevent you from being able to change text or colors on layers that have been grouped. Below is an effect that you can install that will allow you to ungroup those layers and access them – again, this is especially important if you want to change colors or alter text. Just select the layer grouping in the layers palette and play the "ungroup" effect.

add an image

You don't need this effect to add your images to our templates – but it will make the process a little quicker.  Just select the "Photo #?" layer in the layers palette for where you want to add an image, then double click the "Add A Pic" effect.

EFFECT FOR ELEMENTS 6 and Up

replace an image

Ever change your mind about which image you wanted to use? Easily switch it out by selecting the layer of the image you want to switch out, then double click this "replace image" effect.  Switch out the image as many times as you'd like!
