Last Sunday something happened to my Photoshop Elements. Surprisingly Adobe Tech Service doesn’t realize that the weekend is a time when most of us don’t work. So imagine my delete when I found that Adobe doesn’t work on weekends either. And so began my five nights in row on the phone with a different tech each one giving me the same non-working solution each and every night. By Friday night I had uninstalled and reinstalled Photoshop Elements 10 no less than at least 10 different times all with the same disappointing results. After each at the end of the call I did get “is there anything else I can help you with ?” and a cheerful “Thank you for calling Adobe.”
Don’t think that I didn’t think ahead. While this was going on I had previously successfully downloaded Photoshop Premiere Elements the video version of Elements. So with that information in I hand I said to myself, because I was by myself, the Adobe tech doesn’t count, “Why not try and download and Adobe Light Room?” And that is exactly what I did. Now I only have to convince Adobe that I not going to pay anymore than the $99 for the upgrade price. As a bonus the Topaz Labs plugin integrate more easily than with Elements.
