I have a set of asl files that I am trying to install in elements 10 and cannot figure out where to install them (or how).

Any answers would be appreciated.

    The default ASL files can be found in the following location:

     

    On Windows C: Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 10\Presets\Styles

     

    Program Files (X86) for 64 bit systems

     

    On Mac go to Applications.

    After I copy and paste the "asl" file into the "styles" folder, what do I do next?  I can't see the new file when I open Elements.

    You may need to re-boot your computer.

    If the reboot doesn't do it, try deleting the file MediaDatabase.d3.

     

    In Windows 7/Vista, go to C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\10.0\Locale\en_US (this path is different if you aren’t in the United States), and delete MediaDatabase.db3 to refresh the list of presets. In XP, it’s in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\10.0\ Locale\en_us (or your location). In Mac OS X, it’s [your hard drive]>Library>Application Support>Adobe>Photoshop Elements>10.0 >Locale> en_US (or your location). The next time you start the editor don't do anything till the thumbnails reappear in the panels.

    Hi,

    I'm new to this forum, so bear with me. 

    I got Adobe Photoshop Elements 10.0 with a purchase of a printer.  It installed correctly and it is semi-usable (which is another topic).  However, I want to install new layer styles into the program and have followed all the above instructions.  However, I do not have the "MediaDatabase.db3" file anywhere on my hard disc drive.  I've copied and pasted all the new .asl files to the correct path for Windows 7 64bit.  Rebooted the computer, and I'm just given the pre-installed styles.  Does anyone have a solution to this?  Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
