I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing this problem, where Photoshop Elements 12 Editor keeps whenever I click on an image I import. I've never had this problem before, and have tried deleting and re-downloading the program again from adobe. Any advice?
Copy link to clipboard
If an existing install is made unusable by a Mac operating system upgrade work through the below steps
By clicking on that first link, and following the instructions, it fixed my problem
I have the same problem and have re downloaded the application, but still the problem exists. Have you found a solution?
Try trashing the prefs which is usually necessary after updating OSX.
Launch Finder and go to your Username >>Library >> Preferences
Send the following files/folders to the trash:
Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 Paths
Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 Settings.
The library is hidden in recent versions of OSX. To get to your user library quickly, from the top menu in Finder, click “Go” whilst holding down the Option (Alt) key and your user Library will appear for you to choose.
One other thing to try:
Click System Preferences in the dock and open Security & Privacy
Choose the Privacy tab and the choose Accessibility
Click the lock to unlock (you may be prompted for your Apple system login password)
Then click the plus button
Macintosh HD >> Applications >> Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 >> Support Files
Choose (highlight) Adobe Photoshop Elements Editor and click open (or simply add a check-mark if already listed)
Re-lock and try the editor again, even if not added to the control list, after closing Security & Privacy
Try launching Elements again. Let us know if that works
Apologies for the delayed response -- I was out of the country for a few weeks.
99jon That solution worked perfectly -- I had tried everything else, and nothing...that was it! Really appreciate you helping me out!
janm92209232 The solution above worked out for me!
I'll close this thread now, thanks!
Pleased to hear it worked for you.
@99Jon HERO! Sorted me out 🙂 XX
I can't get this to work and I have tried all recommendations. Here is the error I get and it just shuts down once I try to save the file.
99jon's solution fixed this for me - after I'd tried reinstalling Photoshop Elements 12, trashing the preferences, and every other option.
Thank you, I did all options in the Library but the one that worked was the privacy setting to allow adobe to make changes.
This worked. At least, I was able to save one photograph. We will see if it holds up.
