Which features are greyed out?
What operating system are you using?
I am using windows 7 and my friend has the same problem and she is using a mac..
Filter gallery is greyed out and digimarc also..
plus when I use smart object/filters then the quick keystrokes dont work either.. plus a few other little issues.
I am tired of going back and forth with photoshop and elements to get it to do features that photoshop has.
Ensure that your document is either RGB color or grayscale and 8 bits/channel for the filter gallery to work.
Which shortcuts don't work with smart objects?
Certain ones may not work, because smart objects are not pixel layers.
Did you look on the menus to see if those commands are greyed out?
Im very new to using photoshop.. but can you please tell me where I change this and what my settings should be.... much appreciated. thankyou
Go to Image>Mode and click on RGB Color and 8 bits/channel and then see if the Filter Gallery works
now that I have uninstalled and reinstalled, only to find that it still didn’t work. thankyou that did work perfectly! now all I need is time ... to play/learn and edit. Thanks agaiin. Diana
