Is that a RAW file? It could be that the camera is newer than version 8 and there is an ACR mismatch.
Find what version and even if ACR is installed. Then find that version at Adobe and see if your particular camera is on the list.
If none of that works, download the free Adobe DNG converter and convert the CR2s to DNGs.
I use the following:
1) Open Elements
3) Enter the File Name: Tractor 1
4) Width: 5752
5) Height: 3186
6) Hit "Enter" and the background tab opens in the Layers area and in the Project Bin
I repeat steps 2) through 6) for each of the next 5 layers naming them Tractor 2 . . . 6.
The camera is a Canon Rebel T1i.
The file is a RAW file.
I checked the Adobe list and my camera is on it for Elements 8.
I tried! But, by guess didn't work. Sorry!
Start from full edit using:
File >> Open
Select your five images and click Open to launch the camera raw dialog. Then select all (top of left hand column in camera raw) and click the button (bottom right) Open Images
The five CR2 files will appear in the project bin.
Then create your template and set your dimensions etc using:
File >> New >> Blank File
Now drag the first CR2 from the project bin and drop it on top of the template. Then repeat for the other four CR2 files. You will get each on a separate layer.
The above worked perfectly. Thank you.
I am trying to combine the layers. I know the next step is to select each of the layers and align them using the move tool. However, I can't seem to select all of the layers. I used the CTRL + Left Click on each but I can't seem to get them all selected.
Also, after I have aligned each of the layers, what command do I use to combine them?
Thanks in advance.
