    Effects question


      Adjustment window will not open when I select an effect like gaussian blur in Photoshop Elements 10.

          Go to Filter>blur>gaussian blur. A screen will come up where you can set the radius. That's it!

          Adjustment layers are opened via the circular icon in the layers palette.

            The screen where I can set the radius did not come up.  On my old version of Elements, when I chose gaussian blur the adjustment window just popped up.  Now on version 10 of Elements when I choose gaussian blur, my photo blurs so I know it is doing something, but no window will open for me to adjust the radius of the effect.


            AND it's not just gaussian blur.  None of the effects, when chosen, produce an adjustment screen/window.

              Are you using the effects panel or the filter menu?

                If your using the effects panel, make sure Automatically Show Filter Gallery is checked:

                  Coming down from the top on the right above the layers palette, I have chosen "Edit", "Full", "EFFECTS", "Filters", and then from the drop down I have chosen "Blur".  Then I click on the Gaussian Blur thumbnail and click apply.  That's when the screen/window should pop up for me to adjust the amount of gaussian blur, but nothing pops up.
