A couple of weeks ago my photos began to appear strange in my Elements 11. They look the same way they did on my husband's laptop, which is why I do not use it to edit my photos. As if maybe the gradient blending is not fine enough, the images look grainy. I have a 64 bit operating system, have been using this program for a long time, I can't figure this out. I have to add, the area the images look odd is the shadows, no blending, grainy.
