I was using Photoshop Elements 30 day trial, finished compositing an image and couldn't export it because the export button was grayed out. There doesn't seem to be anything that happens when I try to click "Export" that tells me why this is. Does anyone have any idea as to why this is or how i can fix it? Are you unable to export during your 30 day trial or something?

You should use 'Save As', not 'Export' when in the editor. It's normal that the 'export' option be grayed out in the editor.There is an 'Export as new files' function in the Organizer menu to export a batch of files with various options.

So why is there an Export option in the File menu, even if greyed out?

Some third party plugins and/or scripts use the Export menu.

(same is true of the Automation Tools menu)
