Photoshop Elements 13, Editor Not Working

Q: Photoshop Elements 13, Editor Not Working

I own a legitimate copy of the above and now have the following problem.
I load the program and get to the screen where you can choose Organiser or Editor. Organiser works fine but when I try to open the editor, after getting the little bar showing 'Building Contents and Effects', I get a message stating 'Photoshop Elements 13 Editor has stopped Working' A problem caused the program to stop working. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available'
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.
Checking on the web it appears many people have had this problem with various Elements versions but no-one seems to have come up with a solution.
Can anyone help please.
I am running Win 10 Home.

Preferred Solution: Photoshop Elements 13, Editor Not Working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am new here and I tried to search for this problem with no luck. My computer and this software are both new.

Computer is running Vista Premium Home 64Bit. Software is Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.

It worked fine for a while, but now when I try to open the edit part of Elements, it opens, then I get a message that says there is a problem and I have to close it.

I found one thing on the internet that advised changing the name of the Twain---did it, still doesn't work.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hi all,

I am new to this forum and would like some help. I am very computer literate (Ex Wang System Engineer) but this has me stumped. I often get BSOD when running the above programs. No other programs give me problems.

I installed trial version of Elements 10 to see if that might help, it crashed once. Since then today I have not been able to get either to crash.

System is I7 930 chip on a Gigabyte m/b (GA-X58A-UD3R), 4Gb ram (2 banks). In the past I have swapped banks, but no change.

OS is win 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Oiginal OEM.

Regards and TIA,


A:BSOD with Photoshop elements Editor and Organiser ver 8 and 10

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error.... if you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps ... if you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider ..

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try



A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:
1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.

2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled. If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.

3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware. It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.

4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instructions. Their website should provide detailed instructions as to the brand and model-specific procedure.... Read more

Hi, We've created and saved a .psd file using a trial version of elements 12. However, when we have tried to reopen the files again - n.b. the files have been closed and reopened previously- we get an error message. "could not complete this request because this file is not compatible with this version of elements". On opening another .psd we created, the message is "could not complete your request because an unexpected end of file was encountered." The files have not been changed in anyway since created with elements 12 nor have the filenames/extensions. Running on sony Vaio core i5 64bit. We can see the preview icon, file size and properties in file explorer. Please advise. thanks. This relates to my daughter's course work and is needed urgently. Not sure why elements may have corrupted the file on saving??

Today I deleted Norton antivirus and installed the comcast free version of McAfee anti virus. Hours later when I needed to use Elements it would start but then just sit there forever and never fully load. This happened time and again even after rebooting. Finally I uninstalled Elements and tried to reinstall it. But when I click on the install button it just sits there. I have disabled Mcafee and still no luck. I've rebooted a number of times and still no luck. I'm running XP Home with all the latest updates and a gig of memory. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I hope this is not a silly question. I'm using Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 It came with a scanner and the software is fine for what I want. I was doing some extensive repairs of some old negs with the clone stamp, then it suddenly stopped working. There were no error messages; it just stopped copying. I can't find anything about this, and any comments an suggestions would welcome.

Ahh, back again for more computer troubles. Apologies if this is in the wrong thread.

So, I'm really confused as to how three things have suddenly stopped working out of the blue. My tablet was working perfectly fine earlier, until I restarted my computer. The driver automatically crashes after start up, even after updating the driver. I have also noticed that Windows Photo Viewer and Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0 also crash as soon as they're started up.

Any idea how I can fix these sudden problems? It's really frustrating that I can't draw, open photos, OR use Photoshop all of a sudden. Nothing was changed as far as I know for them to stop working.

<<The driver automatically crashes after start up...>>There are all sorts of drivers working in any Windows system...there are hardware drivers, Windows drivers, and software drivers.The two programs you mention have their own drivers.We need to have exact quotes of error messages...to even have a chance of determining what might be wrong with your system.Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Any recommendations for a newbie to get up to speed with Photoshop Elements 7 and Premiere Elements 7 ?

I'm interested in DVD based tutorials or web-based tutorials. I googled and found so many forum based user support websites, that it's over whelms me.

I have a digital microscope camera "Premiere MA88" that seems to be interfereing with my Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 program.
Let me start by saying I had this same set up and used it on my desktop with some interference with photoshop, we moved and my set up is different. I now am trying to use it with my laptop which is on Vista 64 bit. It wouldn't work. I called where I got it from and they sent me a new one with uipdated software. I returned the other one. I set up the new one and this is when the "editor" part of Elements 7 has stopped working completely.
When I try to access the editor it closes the program and gives me a message that Windows is closing it down. I have uninstalled both microscope camera software and Adobe Elements, tried reinstalling just Elements but to no avail!! I really, really, need my photo program restored. Any suggestions??
I've also run scan disk, defrag and registry file with nothing helping.

A:Microscope cam messes up Elements 7 editor mode

I am running Windows XP and have just installed Adobe Photoshop Elements
3. The problem I am having is that quite a few of the windows are pop up
and the open much too large for me to view them completely. The filter
gallery for example opens huge and a portion is cut off on the right side. I
have not figured out any way to fix this so I can view all the functions.
I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it didn't change a things.
I have a gateway VX900 moniter and already checked to see if maybe I
need a new driver but it says I am current and all my other programs are
viewed just fine.

I would appreciate any help as this is making me very annoyed.

I just purchased Photoshop Elements 5.0 last week. I loaded it, everything was working fine. Both the photo organizer and the photo editor elements were behaving. Then today, I went to work on a photo and the only piece working is the photo organizer. Any time I go to edit a picture -- it locks the whole program up. And to make matters more frustrating -- my Photoshop 7.01 doesn't launch at all - it locks up. I haven't changed

I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it (several times) and the very same thing keeps happening.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

I just got PSE 7. Worked great untill I started looking for the file browser( shich is supposed to be one of the better bells and whistles in 7.0) I click on "file" in the edit page and the "browse"command should be in the drop down, but it's not. There is a browser folder in the PSE 7.0 folder, but I I can't seem to do anything with it. I'd retun it to Amazon, but it's software. I feel like I'be been ripped off. Is there anyway I can activate the browser folder? I haven't tried uninstall/reinstall yet, it's pretty time comsuming. Just wondering if anyone else has this problem?

Hello, I wanted to install the trial version of the windows version of Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 and test it before requesting that my supervisor purchase it. However whenever I try to install the software I have a java error that keeps popping up. The error is java.exe - Application error. The memory could not be read.

Yesterday, I uninstalled all references to java and the Photoshop Elements software. Downloaded and installed the latest java driver. Reinstalled Photoshop Elements with the same result.

Does anyone have any suggestions or perhaps I should be looking for another software option.

Thank you

P.S. I did call Adobe technical support but they wanted $39 for 1 time support, which I cannot get approval for since we have not yet decided to purchase the software.

Hi -

I have Photoshop Elements 2 which I think is a great piece of software. One problem Iím having though is when I scan a full length picture, then enlarge the picture with the cropping feature it loses its sharpness and clarity when I print. I understand why this happens. I just would like to know if there is a way to restore the picture back to its original sharpness and clarity. I tried all the features suggested (changing pixel dimensions, resolution, document size, sharpness features, ect.) nothing seems to work. Is the problem because Elements 2 just does not have these features - and that I need to stepup to its big brother Photoshop 7 or am I missing something.

Thank you,

A:Photoshop Elements 2 ?

In that particular case you would not get any improvement going to PS7. They both use bicubic as their best resample filter for resizing and I donít think there is any difference.

If you are scanning the photo at 300 PPI you are getting all of the image information on the photo. You could scan at a higher resolution but I donít think the resulting image would be any better than scanning at 300 PPI and resizing with bicubic. You might try scanning at 600 PPI to see how it comes out.

Your problem is that you donít have enough image information to enlarge a section of it after you crop. The limitation is in the information available on the print. If your scanner has a light in the lid and holders for film you might do a little better scanning the negatives if the scanner has an optical resolution of 1600 or higher.

A dedicated film scanner would give you a lot more pixels of information to work with, but they are pricey.

I had been trying out Photoshop Elements for a 30 day try-out disc from a library book. I liked the program and just purchased the new software. I had deleted and uninstalled the first program but when I installed the new disc I still had the try-out version with my saved images on my computer and NOT the new version. I don't want to be left with this try-out version because it does not have all the options of the regular program. For instance I cannot connect to the Adobe Website from the trial version nor can I run the tutorials offered with the regular version. I tried to uninstall and re-install the software but I still have the old try-out version.

My first suggestion would be to upgrade to photoshop elements 9 or maybe even cs5 if you want more features. If you don't want to up grade to either because of cost, I would highly suggest that you check the requirements of photoshop. It most likely suggests intel pentium II or lower. If you have an intel core i* it may not be hardware compatible. It would be helpful if you said what OS you have also. If you know what you are doing, you could check the registry for errors. Especially under the licensing information. As a last resort I would contact Adobe and request a new installation disk or a trial of it so you can enter your serial number.

Thanks for the assist!

A:Moving Photoshop Elements v3 to new HD

You will have to back up the PE catalog file first. In PE Organizer, click, FILE, BACKUP. When the Step 1 menu appears, select BACKUP the CATALOG; in Step 2, check FULL BACKUP, Step 3 select the drive & path to use. Depending on your set-up; you can copy to cd/dvd or hard drive (including the new drive).

You will also need to copy all your pictures from the old dr to the new using the same tree structure.

Once the back up is complete & you have installed PE on the new drive; use the RESTORE feature (FILE, RESTORE) to build the data base on your new drive.

You may have to run the RECONNECT COMMAND once everthing is moved to the new drive. In PE select help, go to the index & read about RECONNECT.
