In Topic: installing styles in PSE 11

20 November 2016 - 08:49 PM

An interesting turn of events.  I actually found a file that contained a number of styles (including the KVE one.  Yay!), but not all.  I appears to be in a presets file from some earlier incarnation of PSE.  And the styles had that dog-eared paper looking icon that meant they could be loaded into my PSE 11.

Don't know why it's there, don't know why it doesn't contain more styles.  Ours not to question why...

Ours just to be grateful

Thanks for all your help, my Dears!

When I downloaded PSE 11 from the Adobe site, it only had the Adobe default styles in it.  So I figured I'd just load styles back from the folder I kept purchased styles in.  All of them had been installed on PSE at some time or other.  I just removed a lot of styles--it seemed like I had so many it was really slowing down PSE--and put them in a folder until I needed a specific style.  This was done back at least 2 or 3 versions of PSE back.

It may be relevant that my original PSE 11 was NOT restored by BackBlaze

I went from I think Pse 8 (or whichever version went on a Mac) to PSE 11.  I'm not sure how it got done but I still had all the styles.  I'm pretty sure 11 was the first version that made it easy to install styles because II thinkPSE 10 (which I have on my laptop) was still the old way.  I just took a look at it and there is no "Load Styles" option in the menu.  I do know how to load the styles as I have done so successfully with several.  It's just the ones in my file with the exec icon that won't open.  I did actually try loading them the old way and interestingly enough the style title appeared in the menu thereafter but nothing else.  Hope doing that wasn't a mistake, what with deleting the metadata.

I'll check out Brandy's style for sure!  Thanks

Well, bless your heart for messing with this stuff post surgery.  Hope you are recovering well and thanks for your continuing help.

I think most of my styles were put in the old fashioned way   SG has such a mega selection of cool styles, I went on a bit of a bender.  Speaking of SG styles, the one I used the very most was KVE starburst white #7601.  The designer no longer appears to be with SG.  If worst comes to worst and I am not able to recover styles, do you think there is something more or less equivalent in the current selection?  It put an external white glow around things and it served me very well with the kind of stuff I do

Thanks again!

Ah you may be on to something.  I had to trash a lot of metadata files before I upgraded to PSE 11.  I bet that's it.  If so, I wonder if there's any solution
