can I add a title to a picture package? - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Barbara, no trouble with any other apps. And no trouble with any other aspect of Elements. The only time I have a problem is when I construct a picture package. Wierd. I do have the book "OS X - The Missing Manual". It's a great book. I was reading through it today and found info on the utility called 'Console', so I fired it up after a crash and this is what it had to say: 2003-06-27 19:17:23.115 iCal Helper[470] Launch of helper planned at : 06/27/03 20:17:23 Jun 27 19:14:54 Rick-Mathess-Computer WindowServer[182]: CGXDisableUpdate: Updates disabled by connection 0x9f17 for ...

    so, i went to read the log and below is the last entry listed. I've no idea what it means other than something is buggered. If anyone either can interpret this or forward it to someone who can, I'd appreciate it. I've decided to go ahead and purchase the app even if I can't get this to work right now. The rest of the package minus picture package is worth it, but it sure would be nice to get this working, too.

    I do appreciate everyone's attempt to help set this right.

    But did you ever repair the permissions?

    By the way, I see that Amazon has PSE 2 for about $55 after the Adobe rebate. Free shipping for orders over $25.

    Edit: Ah, you have to provide proof of ownership of one of a number of other digital editing apps to get the rebate, but a whole lot of stuff is covered. The first time I bought it, I used info from a Win program that I had gotten with a scanner.

    Hmph. I'm not very good at reading those crash logs, but that one seems a bit odd, I think, maybe.

    A couple of questions, Rick. Do you have any kind of antivirus or 3rd party system utilities installed? Do you use macjanitor? Have you ever used jaguar cache cleaner or tail for any other problem?

    BTW, when you get the full version, I would first trash the demo, the PE prefs folder and the .plist. Then repair permissions, run the installer and repair again.

    Also, have you ever run fsck?

    lol, you know, if you read that quickly it kinda gets your attention.

    I've no anti virus app yet (which makes me nervous even though most mac users tell me 'no worries'. I was maniacal about security on my XP machine (and deservedly so, given that environment).

    I've never run any of that stuff you mention, don't know what any of it is.

    Re installing the paid version, absolutely, that's what I intend to do.

    Okay, you need to go to versiontracker and download mac janitor and run it once in a while, especially if you have a laptop. UNIX does certain housekeeping tasks between 3 and 5 am every night, and they don't get done if your computer is asleep or turned off. Mac janitor just lets you run them manually (easily-you just click a button) whenever you want. There are daily, weekly and monthly tasks. Most of us run the complete set about once a month rather than doing them every day.

    Now, we need to run fsck to see if there's something else going on. You will need to restart your computer while holding down the command and 's" keys. It will restart to a lot of scary looking white type on a black screen. Wait a minute to be sure it's through doing its thing, then carefully type "fsck -y" without the quotes. Note the space between the k and the dash. Hit the return key.

    The computer will go through a list of stuff. When it's done it will either say that files have been modified or that the hard drive "appears to be okay." If it says files have been modified, type "fsck -y" again, exactly as you did before. Repeat the process till you get the "appears to be okay" message. Then type "reboot" (again without the quotes) and press the return key to get back to regular macland.

    If you see error messages while it's running, try to take note of what they are.

    Oh and as far as viruses go, the only viruses that are a concern at all on the mac are MS macro viruses. Macs aren't affected by them, but they can transfer them between infected pcs via attachments.

    Last time I checked, there were something like 18 known viruses that affect UNIX, and for 14 of them the only way to infect a computer is manually from the same intranet or by installing the virus at the keyboard of the machine itself.

    Switchers usually are more comfortable with virus software, but frankly, in 99.99% of cases, when you run a virus scan on a mac and get a message that "8 files were modified", say, it usually means that your virus software just corrupted 8 innocent files.

    So get it if it makes you more comfortable, but so far, it's a major non-concern for the mac, especially in X. That can always change, of course, but I've been on the internet since 1995 and I've never had any virus software and don't now.

    Barbara, was just about to tell Rick the same thing.

    Rick, I see you have Pogue's OS X The Missing Manual. Look at page 560 and you'll find out all about *fsck*. It really works and I bet you find lots of errors there and fsck fixes them.

    I'm using OS 10.2.6 and Elements works great.

    Good Luck

    Rick, I'm glad that worked for you. If you should have trouble again, "fsck" is the next thing to try.
