I recently bought Brandy Murray's Emboss and Engrave layer styles. But for some reason I cannot get it to show up in my Elements 9 folder. I've gone online and found countless tutorials but nothing works. I added styles before but never with this much drama. I did notice that there was no metadata file with the download. Could this be the problem? Someone please help me.
First, if you are on a PC and Windows Vista or Windows 7, be sure you have copied the asl file(s) to:
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0\Photo Creations\layer styles
If you are sure you’ve correctly installed the style(s), and they are still not showing up you will need to rebuild your database. This is done simply, so Photoshop Elements will recognize your newly installed items. To do this, delete the MediaDatabase.db3 file which will be found in the following path:
C: > ProgramData> Adobe > Photoshop Elements > 9.0 > Locale > en_us.
You will also want to delete the ThumbDatabase.db3 file which can be found in the following path:
C: > ProgramData> Adobe > Photoshop Elements > 9.0
Then re-start PSE and allow the database to rebuild. (When I used PSE 9, this used to take up to 15-20 minutes.) After the database has finished rebuilding, the styles should appear in the layer styles palette. HTH
NOTE: If you are using Windows XP, or if you are on a MAC, the paths are different, so let us know. More information can be found in the free ebook: Scrap Girls ScrapSimple Instructions Handbook (Free ScrapSimple basics eBook)
