Are you using a version of photoshop extended cs3 or newer or photoshop elements?
Photoshop Elements 7
Photoshop elements doesn't have a count tool, ruler tool or measurement log as the full version photoshop extended does.
You can measure using the line tool while looking at the info panel and get limited info on selected areas using the info panel and eyedropper tool.
But there is no automactic way in elements to keep track of the number (count) of separate selections.

Many thanks for replying. I had a good look for a count tool so I'm not surprised to find it's not there. I realise I am trying to use PHE for something it was not designed to do.
What does "PHE" stand for? I've heard Photoshop Elements called "PSE" before, but never with an "H".
