What am I missing? Smart Objects are not disabled in my preferences. I'm using PS Elements 2018
You are missing the full Photoshop...
That option is not available in Photoshop Elements.
You can recover that command and many others by installing the very affordable Elements+ add-on.
Fantastic! Thanks SO much MichelBParis!!
ive downloaded this as i had the same issue but i still cant see the option for smart objects, did you figure it out?
Read the whole thread and test the smart object section in the link I have provided.
The added script does not transform PSE into PS with the same menus, it provides the missing functionality.
You can ask the author for help.
Never heard of it before but that's an incredible add-on and at the price of a pizza too. Sure wish they accepted PayPal. Thanks, MichaelB..
They do accept PayPal, Phinny!
Time to go back and get mine then. Too cool, thanks ammcjm. 😃
The author of Elements+, Andrei Dubrovski also monitors another independent forum:
You might as well browse the discussions for resources about the PSE etitor or organizer as well as Lightroom and Photoshop. Much richer that Adobe's faqs.
