You might get a better response to your Photoshop Elements question in the Photoshop Elements forum.
But, meantime, be sure to indicate what format the photo is (.tif, .jpeg, .bmp, etc) and what model of camera it came from.
>photoshop Premier Elements
Are you asking about PHOTOSHOP Elements the photo editing program, or PREMIERE Elements the video editing program?
The probability is high that you are in Premiere Elements if you are getting the message
this type of file is not supported, or the required codec is not installed
I do not recall ever seeing that specific message popping up in Photoshop Elements.
What versions of Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements are you working with and on what computer operating system is they running?
What are the properties including pixel dimensions of the photo(s) that you are trying to get into the workspace and just how are you getting them into the Premiere Elements workspace, if that is where you are? Are these jpg, tif, raw, or other? Are you using Add Media/Files and Folders/Projects Assets or something else?
If these are photos raw format, what version of Camera Raw are you using?
We will be watching for your follow up.
Thanks to you all for your response to my query. I must apologise, i feel a complete twit, of course you where correct i was using Premiere Elements the VIDEO editing
software. As soon as i opened the Photoshop Elements my STILLS worked without a problem. Sorry for wasting your time
Thanks for the follow up.
Stills can be imported into Premiere Elements to be part of a video project. There are several still formats that are supported.
What was the format of the still that you were trying to use in Premiere Elements? And, what version of Premiere Elements?
It sounds like you found a solution to your issue using Photoshop Elements instead of Premiere Elements. But, you may want to do a video project with stills in the future, so best clear up this matter. No Q&A is a waste of time. We all learn in the process.
Please do not hesitate to ask for clarification on anything written here.
