This is my first time on the forums. I cannot load Editor on Photoshop 7. Is there a reason?

    Try to reset preferences for editor. Here's how:


    1. Exit PSE.
    2. Open PSE just to the Welcome Screen and press Ctrl + Alt + Shift (Mac: Cmd + Opt + Shift) and keep pressing.
    3. Click on "Edit" from the Welcome Screen but keep pressing the keyboard keys - don't let up.
    4. You will get a little dialog box asking if you want to delete the settings file. Click "Yes."  You can let go of the keyboard keys now.

    This will rebuild the file.

    Relaunch the Editor and check is it working or not.

    Try the below

    Navigate to the folder containing the TWAIN plug-in:

    • If you are using Mac OS:
      Navigate in Finder to /Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 8/Plug-Ins/ImportModules/.
    • If you are using a 32-bit edition of Windows:
      Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements [Version]\Locales\en_US\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\ .
    • If you are using a 64-bit edition of Windows
      Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements [Version]\Locales\en_US\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\.

      If you don't know which edition of Windows you have, see Determine whether your computer is running a 32-bit or a 64-bit edition of Windows (kb407673).
    1. Rename TWAIN.plugin to ~TWAIN.plugin (Mac OS) or rename Twain_32.8BA to~Twain_32.8BA. (In Windows, it's possible the file doesn't have the filename extension .8BA.)
