16 bits Tiff files with Photoshop Elements

Hello,
I scan slides and films and get 16bits Tiff files. For post scan processing I would like to use PE but on the one I have (PE6 for Mac) most of the time before I start using a tool PE is asking me to convert the file into 8bits 'cause Element doesn't manage everything with 16bits files. Do you know if this is likely to change or if I need to buy Photoshop for my needs (as lomg as Photoshop works with 16bits which I assume it does).
Thanks for your answer and advices
Pierre

Adobe seems to want to keep this as one of the distinctions between 
PSE and PS. If you want to work with layers in 16 bits, you need to 
move to PS. All you have in PSE are the more basic functions.

    An attempt to open a pdf file with Photoshop Elements (version 12) resulted in a pop generated by the Photoshop Editor stated "Impossible to execute this operation (opening file) because one of the specified colour is not managed". Is there any mean to adapt the file to make its reading possible?
    Did somebody get the same problem?

    It is a high order probability that your SQL's report generator is creating the PDF, not Acrobat (which by design and EULA cannot be used in as/with server).
    That the report generator outputs to an old-old version of PDF bears this out.
    Wiki articles on PDF are very nice for those high level intro summaries.
    To know / understand PDF you purchase and study the ISO Standard for PDF (ISO 32000-1:2008).
    Rather than "PDF validation" you may want to consider addressing the appearent root cause of the problem(s).
    You can change the email2fax application to one that can deal with older PDF versions.
    You can change the report generator to one that can output to the ISO Standard.
    (Perhaps the in-use application can be configured to output to the current version of PDF (i.e., the ISO Standard).

  • Tagging TIFF-files in Photoshop Elements 5

    I'am still using Photoshop Elements 5, but the organizer refuses to tag my TIF-files from a Nikon  D 300 (tagging JPEG's is no problem).  Because I would like to continue saving my edited pictures as TIFF-files, I would be glad, if anybody could give me a hint how to manage this problem.

    1) NEF (RAW) + JPEG Fine. I load the NEF-file with the Editor into this opening frame (don't know it's name). After treating the picture there I choose "Open picture" (translated from German) and continue treating the picture with the Editor. At last I save it as a TIFF- or an JPEG-file.
    2) Yes
    3) After drawing the icon with the tag to the picture it is to be seen for about three seconds. If I choose a new category, this icon appears below the picture.
    After this I choose "Save the tag- and featurecharacteristics with the photo" (translated from German) and get the answer: "The tag- and featurecharacteristics have been written into the file metadata" (translated from German).
    If I load the photo/file into the Editor, there are tags/keywords within the files I before saved as JPEGs and no tags/keywords within the the files I before saved as TIFFs.

  • Automatically Slicing Large TIFF Files with Photoshop 5.1

    I am trying to automatically slice a very large TIFF file (800 MB) into 28 equally-sized rectangles using Actions (it is a scanned image of 28 scientific slides and reducing the resolution is not an option). My goal is to start with the TIFF file and end up with a folder that contains 28 separate files. I'll do this on many such TIFF files, so it needs to be coded into an action.
    So far I have an action that creates guides in a grid pattern and then converts the guides to 28 individual rectangular user slices that together cover the entire screen. Unfortunately the file is far too large  to use with the "Save for Web & Devices" tool and I also can't export to TIFF from that tool. So I made an action that individually selects each slice (using the slice select tool), copies it, creates a new file, pastes the image, saves it as a flattened, non-compressed TIFF into a new folder, then closes the file. When I try to run this I get the following error:
    The command "Select" is not currently available
              -- Continue --       -- Stop --
    If I press Continue the action is not carried out. If I press Stop and select the slice manually there is no problem (but then my action will not be fully automated). The image is in 8-bit RGB mode, and I've also tried converting the locked Background layer into a standard layer. I don't see any reason why the select command shouldn't be available! There is only one layer and there are user slices available for selection. I tried separating the slicing and select/import jobs into 2 different actions but it still didn't work.
    Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

  • Cannot open a TIFF file with Photoshop CS5

    I have enclosed the URL to a TIFF file. I am not able to open this file using Photoshop CS5, as it says unsupported file with this version. I didn't face this problem before.

    Thanks in advance.

    Something must have corrupted someting in the file so newer versions of photoshop won't open it.
    I was able to open it in photoshop 3, ImageReady and also paint and a couple of other non adobe image editors/viewers.
    Though the transparency didn't seem to survive.
    If have you some other image editors or viewers you might try those.

  • Operating on nef files with photoshop elements

    I have a nikon d7100 camera and photoshop elememnts 8.  At present I cannot open the NEF files into elements 8.  What is the solution? If I have to upgrade to elements 11 - will this software do the trick (or is there any other option?)

    You need to "read up" on Adobe Camera Raw (ACR), how the versions change as cameras are introduced, how ACR versions apply to versions of PSE and, generally how the various versions of "RAW" files are translated to something viewable.
    The short version is that your 7100 is so new it was not included until ACR 7.4, the last of the 7.x series.  To use any version of the 7.x series you need PSE 11.  Earlier versions of PSE won't accept the 7.x series.
    Adobe DNG Converter upgraded to 8.1 last week.  7.4 is history! 

  • Problem with editing Aperture photos with Photoshop Elements 10

    When I try to edit with Photoshop Elements 10, Aperture makes a tiff file, starts Photoshop Elements 10 and get to a screen where I have a choice between "editing" or "managing" files.  I select editing but when i finally get the editing screen there is no photo to edit.  Process worked fine in Elements 9 and Aperture 3.1. Anybody been able to roundtrip with Aperture 3.2.1 and Photoshop Elements 10?

    (Aperture 3 and PSE 10; Lion; using Referenced files in Aperture)
    I tried Barbara's recommended method and PSE now opens with the image displayed and accepts edits.  However, when I save the adjusted image, what I get in Aperture is a TIFF file of that name but with no edits displayed.
    When I go to the directory in which the referenced files are located, the adjusted file exists and I can view it.
    So, (at least as I have things configured), when accessing PSE from Aperture I am able to make adjustments and save the adjusted file, but the adjusted file does not display in Aperture.
    Is anyone having success with Barbara's method using referenced files? 
    I hope it is not necessary to do a separate import to get the adjusted file to display in Aperture - which would make PSE totally impractical for use.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    You need camera raw 8.4 for your camera, if it’s Digital Rebel T5 EOS 1200D EOS Kiss X70. It is not compatible with PSE11; so it’s a bit odd if that software was bundled with the camera except that it will work with jpegs. I suggest you download and install the free Adobe DNG converter to convert your CR2 files to the Adobe universal Raw format and the DNG files will editable in PSE11(keep your originals as backups and for use in the camera manufactures software)
    Mac download (.dmg file) click here DNG Converter 8.4
    You can convert a whole folder of raw images in one click. See this quick video tutorial:

  • How can I obtain a version of Print Studio Pro that works with Photoshop Elements 13 (64 bit)?

    How can I obtain a version of Print Studio Pro that works with Photoshop Elements 13 (64 bit)?  The advertising refers to Print Studio Pro 2 but all I find available to download is version 1.35.

    Thanks - I did notice that the 2 was a superscript on one site but on another (I think the one for the Pro-10 printer) it was definitely a 2 in line with the rest of the text and separated by a space (at least on my browser).  At any rate, I suspected something of the kind and will simply use Photoshop Elements 11 when I want a pattern print until the change is made.
    If you have an inside line to Canon you might also suggest some changes to their Image Garden program, specifically its handling of DVD label projects.  It has several themes and within each theme several layouts.  As far as they go these are fine but they do not give nearly enough flexibility.   The boxes for insertion of images are useful as is the simple procedure for rescaling the image so it is cropped in varying ways while staying within the fixed box.  However, it should be possible (a) to relocate the boxes on the page and (b) to resize and reshape the boxes - probably by a control which would become available by right-clicking on the box.  For example, there are times when the user might want to include a full 16 x 9 frame shot as one of the images, and in general the aspect ratios of the provided boxes do not permit this.
    I have over the years preferred to use Word for this purpose after setting up masks to expose just the printable area of the DVD or Blu-ray disc, setting up the margins so that the center of the disc is in the horizontal center of the page, and finally introducing text and pictures and adjusting the font size of blank lines above the disc to line everything up properly in the vertical direction.  A typical layout might involve one large picture, located so the center hole and the curved outer edge do not block anything important, or two pictures side by side, or four pictures centered vertically (to minimize the effect of the outer edge of the disc) but possibly of different widths (so as to make both close-ups and wide scenes optimal on the same disc label).  The text then goes above and below the pictures.  All of this works perfectly so I probably wouldn't use Image Garden very often for this purpose, but the inability to resize and relocate the boxes must be very limiting for others as well. 
    Some of the layouts have image locations severely reduced by the edge of the disc.
    As I said ... if you have an inside line to Canon .. but if not, please excuse the length of this post!

  • Does Lightroom work with Photoshop Elements

    Does Lightroom work with Photoshop Elements?

    When setting up the editor in the prefs choose images of 8 bits not 16 bits, either PSD or tiff. Elements works best with 8 bit images. For example you can't use layers with 16 bit images.
    Once you have set up the LR prefs you are ready to make the round trip:
    1) Ctrl+E in the Library to export selected image with develop settings or right-click and choose Open In Photoshop Elements Editor
    2) Make your adjustments in Photoshop Elements; then Ctrl+S to replace (overwrite) Lightroom export copy
    3) Ctrl+W to close in Photoshop Elements and update Lightroom thumbnail.
    On Mac OSX Cmd+E; Cmd+S; Cmd+W
    The important point is to overwrite the LR export copy by using File >> Save (Ctlr+S) because a tiff or PSD file has been automatically rendered by LR based upon your preference setting for External Editing. If you use “Save As” you create a new document which LR knows nothing about. It will only show in the LR Library if you save.

  • Save as a 16 bit TIFF file for Enlarging?

    Question, a local photo developer told me that if I wanted to develop my photos at something like 16 x 20 or larger I should save my photos as a 16 bit TIFF file. Elements 4.0 does not seem to allow me to set the bits at 16, just 8. Is there any truth to what they are saying?
    Also isn't the file size going to be massive when doing this. Most likely prohibiting an upload to their site?
    I am shooting with a Nikon D50 in RAW format. Obvioulsy I have to open it in Elements from Camera Raw as an 8 bit photo to save it in either TIFF or JPEG format.
    Any comments are appreciated.

    Thank you for your comment.
    When I save the 16 bit file in ACR it saves it as a .dng file. When I open the .dng file in Elements again the raw editor opens it as a 8 bit file automatically. This may be all well and good if I can have enlargements made with this file type but not good if what the developer is telling me is true. ???????

    Hi,
    The D810 requires Camera Raw 8.6 or later - the latest version that is compatible with Photoshop Elements 12 is Camera Raw 8.5 as far as I can see.
    You need to either buy a new version of Photoshop Elements or use the free Adobe DNG converter.
