Upgrading To Pse12 From Pse7

05 January 2014 - 06:37 PM

PSE 7 was the first program I used when I started digi scrapping....I decided to upgrade this year, and am nervous about the transition. i have installed PSE 12 but don't automatically see my previous styles and actions.  I have not yet uninstalled PSE7.  Frankly I'm afraid I may lose something. The info in the booklet doesn't really address upgrading from a previous program, so I'm hesitant to do too much.


Can any of you computer savvy ladies (or gents) please point me in the right direction? It's been so long since I even purchased a style or action that I'm not sure I know where they're at or where to put them.  

Google Search Brings Up Scrapbook Layouts

15 May 2013 - 10:08 PM

I was reading some articles about safety on the internet and I did a Google Search for my name and clicked on "images"...to my surprise I found some of my scrapbook layouts from the Scrapgirls gallery displayed there. Not such a big deal in some respects except that I don't really want my journaling to be "out there" visible to whoever...

I have been putting the copyright symbol and my name in the gallery post as someone mentioned to take credit for it. Maybe I shouldn't do that anymore? Can I remove them from the ones already posted in the gallery?

What are your thoughts on this topic?

thanks for any insight you can offer....Amy

Which download file was the color swatch in? I must have overlooked it when I downloaded it.

Can Actions Be Used On More Than One Computer?

17 January 2013 - 02:03 PM

Maybe I'm doing something illegal here, please let me know.

I bought the color swatch action and installed it on my desktop awhile back Photoshop Elements 7. I just now realized I never put it on my laptop (was trying to do the Jumpstart January color swatch and couldn't find that action) so I was going to try to install it on my laptop (same Photoshop Elements 7).

I copied the files from the desktop and put them into dropbox so I could access them on my laptop. When I tried to put them on my laptop it didn't work...tried to rebuild the database like it suggests but now the program won't even open up. Looking at the files I copied over I now see a padlock on all of the icons I brought over. Thinking I did something wrong I deleted the files from the laptop, emptied the recycle bin, and tried to reopen PSE...it starts to open, then a window pops up that says it's stopped working. I tried to rebuild the database again, and the program will come on like it's rebuilding, but then when it's almost complete it stops working again.

so I guess my questions are
1)can I use the actions on more than one computer?
2)why won't my PSE7 open if I tried to get everything back to how it was before I even tried to copy these actions?

How To Find Old Newsletter Topic

17 January 2013 - 11:04 AM

I am looking for the newsletter that had "Using a Brush as a Clipping Mask" by Amy Flanagan. I had copied and pasted it into a word document for my own reference later, but didn't copy down the link, and now I need to reference it from its original newsletter.

In other words, how do you search for old newsletter topics?
