Photo Shop Elements 8

Hello all,

 

I have been using Elements 8 since 2010 with Windows 7.

I know both are antiques, but Elements 8 works perfect for me just fixing

cosmetic issues for faces, as I am a Wedding Photographer.

Yesterday I opened Elements 8 and everything worked fine until I clicked on the healing brush

tool and took a sample of someones face and when I went to make the correction it did not work.

Please help, is there just something I do not have clicked on at the top of the page?

I tried turning off my computer and starting again from scratch, but that also did not work.

I hope this is something simple, I even tried putting new batteries in my wire less key board.

To summarize, it opens fine, I can control + and zoom in/out and all is fine, except this function.

 

Thanks, Mark        [Email removed by Moderator]

Are you still using a Windows 7 machine?  If you are in fact using Windows 10 or 11, you should try opening the program in compatibility mode.

See my instructions here.  The exe file for Elements 8 should be found in the following directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 8\

 

If you have a modern computer, you should really consider upgrading to Elements 2024.  There are many newer features that would be helpful to a wedding photographer.

I would start by resetting the Healing Brush Tool by clicking on the little downturned arrow shown in the screenshot below and clicking Reset Tool.
