Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 crashing on my Mac

HELP!  My Photoshop Elements 10 keeps crashing on my Mac!  Been using it for many years but have recently upgraded my Mac and now the program will run for about 15 mins and then crash!  Very frustrating!

When you upgrade OS X over an installed copy of PSE it is critical to delete all existing preferences.
Go to your username>libary>preferences and delete:
com.adobe.PhotoshopElements.plist
Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 settings
Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 paths
com.adobe.Elements  Organizer. 10.0.plist
com.adobe.ElementsOrganizer10.plist
and any lockfiles with the same names.
To see the user library in recent versions of OS X, click the Go menu in the Finder and hold down the Option key and it will appear below the little house for your user account. While you're in there also go to the Saved Application States folder and delete any for PSE.

  • Transfer from Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 on Windows XP to Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 on the Mac.

    I want to transfer from Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 on Windows XP to Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 on the Mac. My problem is I have lost my catalog and Windows XP.  I need help.
    I have installed the newest Mac version of Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 (PSE 12 Mac) and it seems to work fine but I have not been able to access my old (XP, PSE6) catalog file.
    I am working on a MacBook Air running OSX version 10.9.2.  I have been using Parallels Desktop 9 Switch-to-Mac-Edition™ to run Windows virtual machines.  I had been working for over a year running Photoshop Elements 6 on Windows XP virtual machine.  The XP operating system was updated to 2/28/14.
    When I installed Windows 8, the Parallels program initially offered me a choice of virtual machines, Window XP or Windows 8.  I could use the XP version to work with Photoshop Elements 6 as before and thought I could be leisurely about transferring my Photoshop operations to the Mac side.
    However, without my knowingly doing anything to dispose of Windows XP, I have “lost” Windows XP.  Perhaps it occurred when I updated to Windows 8.1.  At any rate, now I have access only to Windows 8.1. 
    To compound the problem the Time Machine backup program for the Mac was not backing up the XP virtual machine files as I had thought.   I have since corrected the settings but I do not have a copy of Windows XP nor of the Adobe Photoshop Elements catalog which I used in the past.
    Moreover, I do not have a workable Windows XP disk; the only one I could find is from Dell and it does not load on my MacBook Air.  I see Windows XP disks offered by Amazon for about $30 and have thought about buying a copy to help see if I could  accomplish the transfer of the catalog file to my Mac.  I would use XP only to accomplish this transfer.
    I am not completely confident that reinstalling Windows XP would actually enable me to do the transfer and I can foresee potential big problems. Therefore, before taking that step I thought that I would check with you to see if there is a way to find the catalog file and perhaps to modify it so that I could work in the Mac Environment.
    I have used Elements to improve and organize over a thousand travel and family photos taken with a pocket size digital camera.  Being a nonprofessional, I have edited mainly by cropping and using Quick Fix but have many hours invested.  Yes,  I still have the originals and probably could have redone much of that work with the time I have invested in trying to find the missing XP and catalog.
    I have found two large HDS files (Windows XP.hdd and Windows XP (2).hdd) that were created 7/15/12.  I suspect they may be important but am not sure what they are.   I read that HDS files are commonly Windows media digital rights management files, DRMs.   HDS files may also be used by hierarchical data systems.  Do the names suggest anything about Photoshop?
    Can you help me find the catalog and transfer it for use with the Mac Adobe Photoshop Elements 12?

    If the code you are trying to enter has letters then you are not looking at a serial number.  A serial number only contains numbers - 6 sets of 4 numbers.

    You might be dealing with a redemption code.  This is especially so if you purchased it from a store or the like.

    The editor will work, pretty much, although you can't easily update the camera raw plug-in. The organizer will not even open.

    I have been using Adobe Photoshop Elements on an older Mac...just bought Mac Mini and migrated all my files...but 4.0 Does not work....can I upgrade PSE 4.0 to PSE 13?

    Yes, any version of PSE qualifies for upgrade pricing, but if you're in the US you might want to consider running the trial  for now and waiting for the black friday specials, when the full version will be a lot less than the adobe upgrade price.

  • Adobe Photoshop Elements to a Power Mac G5

    Hallo
    Is it still possible to buy a version of Photoshop elements to a Power Mac G5 with a PowerPC CPU?
    If yes - What is the version called, and where to buy?

    PSE 6 would be the latest version. Adobe doesn't sell it, but you might find a copy someplace else.

  • Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 Reinstall for Mac?

    I bought Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 but get the following alert: "Some of the application components are missing from the Application directory, Please reinstall the application." Can it be reinstalled? It is not available under "History" and none of the available installs appear to be for Mac OS X (Version 10.7.4). Should I give up on this software?

    Uninstall it using the uninstaller in Applications>Adobe Photoshop Elements 9, and reinstall. Be sure you are running from an admin account, and if you use any kind of antivirus software, disable it during the install.
    If the app store version (ONLY for the app store), put it in the trash and download again, but check your list of installed programs in the app store to be sure it's still available before you do.

  • Is Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 compatible with Mac Mini 1.66GHz Intel Core Duo

    Hello, I’m using Mac Mini 1.66GHz Intel Core Duo with Mac OSX 10.6.8 Snow Leopard.  When I try to install Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 I receive this error message:  “Some errors occurred during installation. Adobe  Elements 11 can be installed on 64-bit systems only.”  Here is the question: is Photoshop Elements 11 compatible with my computer and operating system? I guess my computer runs at 32-bit. Why do I receive that error message when I try to instal the Trial version of the software? I have read that Photoshop Elements 11 is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. Thank you.

    On prodesigntools.com
    http://prodesigntools.com/photoshop-elements-11-premiere-elements-11-are-out-pse-pre.html
    they say Photoshop Elements 11 running native in 32-bit:
    Photoshop & Premiere Elements 11 will run well on 32-bit or 64-bit systems, and are designed for Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Mac OS v10.6 through v10.8 (see the full system requirements for PSE 11 on Windows/Mac; and PRE 11 on Windows/Mac). 
    Premiere Elements 11 comes with a native 64-bit version for higher performance – in other words, the PRE Editor now runs native on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.
    Photoshop Elements 11 continues as before, running native in 32-bit and compatibly on 64-bit systems.
