I just got a new desktop. All my files were transferred over to my new desktop including old psd files from Adobe Photoshop 7 that were saved properly as psd file with layers checked as I have worked on them even as recently as last week. I had to install Photoshop 2021 on my new desktop and I can see and open the psd files but when I open them they open without any layers. Just one image/layer as if it is a jpg
I'm not a power user of Photoshop, but I do simple project, I can't figure out why my layers aren't showing where so I can swap out pictures in my templates.
Any message in photoshop elements when opening the psd files?
If you still have access to photoshop 7, do the exact same psd files open with the layers intact?
Can you show a screenshot from photoshop elements 7 and photoshop elements 2021 with the same file open?
Or better yet could you provide one of the actual files for us to test?
My guess is that you are in the Quick editing mode. You need to be in Expert mode to show layers. Quick mode is the default upon first launch of the Editor.
And just to be clear, this is the Photoshop Elements forum, not the Photoshop CC forum.
@francopfohl, I tried to open your file in Elements and it does not have a color profile that is supported by Elements. (Elements will convert the color mode to RGB.) However, I also opened it in Photoshop and the file you attached only has one layer. Somewhere in your editing process, you must have flattened the image.
