I have hundreds if not close to a thousand of layer styles I purchased and could bulk upload in the past.  Is there a way I can do this in elements 2021?  It takes days to do it one by one. I tried doing it by adding in like I did in the past and they don't show up.   Please help.....

Hi 🙂

 

There are three "official" methods for loading Styles (.ASL files) into PSE2021:

 

  1. Styles panel > Load Styles...

  2. Styles panel > Preset Manager... > Add

  3. Edit > Preset Manager... > Preset Type: Styles > Add

 

Unfortunately, you can only add one Style (.ASL file) at a time using any of these three methods (unlike Brushes and Actions, which use different file formats and are managed in a different way to Styles).

 

In earlier versions of PSE you could get around this limitation by copy & pasting multiple .ASL files into a number of different folder locations depending on the version of PSE you were using, and then force-rebuild the ThumbDatabase.db3 and MediaDatabase.db3 files.

 

Unfortunately, that workaround no longer appears to work.
