PSE compatability with Snow Leopard?

Apr 4, 2013 9:23 PM

After using PSE v6.0 for years under Mac Leopard, I upgraded to Snow Leopard and it is no longer stable....crashes mostly when saving a file.  I tried reinstalling PSE v6.0 but nothing changed.  I've looked for upgrades to both Snow Leopard and PSE v6.0 but Snow Leopard's didn't improve anything and I can't find upgrade to PSE.  Looked at the web for help but find only old complaints and an inconsistent experience....some installations work and some don't with no fix to be found  Need help, please.  Don

    PSE 6 works fine in 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8. However, it is crucial that you delete all the preferences when you do a major OS X upgrade.

     

    Go to your username>library>preferences and delete:

     

    com.adobe.Photoshop.Elements.plist

    Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 Paths

    Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 Settings

    Opera prefs (if you have it)

     

    Repair permissions and try again.

    Sorry, your last two posts are blank.

    Still blank, I'm afraid.

     

    If you're doing this by email, here's how it shows in the forum:

    The very last post was blank, but the two before came through. How did you get from your earlier version of OS X to 10.6? Did you install it over your existing OS or did you  do a clean install and then move everything back?

    Also, you are at 10.6.8, right?

    You're welcome, Don. I'm glad you were able to fix it.
