I haven't been able to import and load as a frame any PSD file - a frame downloaded from the Internet.

What can be the reason?

Your PSD files are not "frame" files as used in Elements.  They are simply layered files that you can use to frame a photo file.

However, you can use the Frame Creator Guided Edit to convert your PSD files into frames which can then be added to your Graphics panel under a My Frames tab.

Thank you. But I can't seem to make it to the end. Even the buttons are inactive. What am I doing wrong?

I think I figured it out. You have to select an empty area.

When I reinstall the program, all of my frames are gone. Although the frame files themselves are present in the folder c:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\20.0\Photo Creations\frames\.

In this case, I had to download them one at a time again. And since I have more than 3 dozen of them, the process is too tedious. Perhaps you can add the function of downloading frames as a set?
