    Default Does Elements Open Regular Photoshop files

    Before I recommend Elements 2.0 to my clients I need to know
    if it will open my regular Photoshop (v. 5.5) files? I realize it may not support some of the sophisticated layering features -- but if I create a 'regular' photoshop file as a template will one of my students working with Photoshop Elements be able to open it and modify it in elements?

    And will they be able to open Photoshop (.psd) files saved on the mac, in Elements 2.0 on the PC?

    Thanks for your assistance with this pretty basic question.

    Yes, it will open these files.

    Note that Elements will ask to convert 16bit files to 8 bit and CMYK files to RGB. Other than that it will open all Photoshop files, and if you do a save as and don't overwrite the original it will not harm the 18bit and CMYK files.
