What version of photoshop elements and operating system are you using?
Which folder did you put the .asl files into?
If you look under the styles list in the custom shape tool, do they show up there?
It's Elements 4 and Windows 7.
I put them in C> program files (x8) > Adobe>Elements 4>Presets>Styles
I seem to remeber having that same issue years ago on windows xp with pse 4.
Here's a couple of things to try:
(you probably won't have a few of the items shown below, but's that normal)
(click on the screenshots below for larger views)
1. Go to C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\4.0\Editor
and delete the PresetsCache.psp and Styles.psp and then start or restart pse 4 and see if that works.
2. If still no then go to C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\4.0\Editor
and delete the Adobe Photoshop Elements 4 Prefs.psp and then restart pse 4.
Thank you, thank you, R. Kelly!!!! I did the first thing and it worked.
If I add more styles will I have to do this each time? Just wondering. There are so many great ones out there that I would love to have.,
I don't know if you will or not, but i don't remember having to do it more than once and i tried adding some styles to pse 4
before i posted and they worked okay without doing the above.
I guess it's just one of those weird things that happens to computers.
Glad it worked for you.
Thanks again. I'm now a happy camper!!
