upgrading from PSE 8 to PSE 10

Jun 29, 2012 11:24 AM

Hi there


I have 8 installed on my laptop and I would like to install 10.  What I want to know is if I have to uninstall 8 first or deactivate it or anything?


Also I have layer styles and actions installed, will they still remain or will I have to reinstall of them once I upgrade.


Thank you!

    Moving this discussion to the Photoshop Elements forum.  It is not required for you to remove Photoshop Elements 8 prior to installing Photoshop Elements 10.

    Both programs are self contained so PSE8 and PSE10 will work happily side by side.


    I have versions 6, 8, 9 & 10 on my machine.


    Any custom actions, plug-ins etc would have to be moved manually although you could carry on using them in PSE8.
