In PSE 9 I can't open photos in edit since I reinstalled PSE 9 on my computer.  My OS is windows 7. What did I do wrong, and how can I fix it?

    How are you opening these files in PSE Editor?

    Please ensure that the filename for these files doesn't have an extra dot or a charater disallowed by the base operating system you are working on. For e.g. broken thumbnail could be caused due to corrupt file or due to a filename say Image.2012.jpg.

    Remove that extra dot or say replace it with an underscore and see if this works,

    If the file is corrupt, try opening it in some other program and save again.

    Hi Walt

    Go to the Editor (Full Edit) and try:


    File >> Open As



    Then navigate to your photo and choose Camera Raw from the file format list.


    If the image opens up, choose 8bits/channel (not 16 bits) at the bottom click on the Open Image button to the right then re-save the file.


    Click image to view
