Elements and PS7 next to each other - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Can I have PE and PS7 as two independent programmes on my computer or will PE automatically identify PS7 as an update thus resulting in the fact that I can no longer work with PE2 but only with PS7? Robert...

    No, they are completely separate. Many people have both Photoshop and PE on their computers. You can even have PE1 and PE2 at the same time.

    On my XP machine I had PS6 and PE2 running on the same partition, C:, and my preferences file would end up getting clobbered every two or three starts.
    I removed PS6 since PE2 is better for that machine, however I am thinking about putting PS6 or PS7 on a differant partition, D: in hopes that they won't step on each other.

    Robert: On my antiquated computer with Win98SE, I can run each separately but not both simultaneously; if I try to start one of them with the other running, I get an unrecoverable error. Not a big problem, though - I don't have a real need to run both at the same time...

    Chuck,

    I can't think of any reason why I would want to run both at the same time.

    Can I work a picture in PE2 and then enhance it further in PS7, with out any difficulty?

    I assume I have to open the (PE2-)picture in PS7 and then adjust it to that format.
    Which means that it may no longer respond in PE2.
    Which of course would then no longer be a problem.

    No, they both use the same formats. You should have no trouble going from one to the other.

    Robert, Barbara is right - of course. A PS7 image and a PE2 image are
    compatible. There are, however, some adjustment layer options in PS7 that
    aren't available in PE, so when an image edited in PS7 has one of those
    layers, that layer can't be edited in PE, although it can be deleted, its
    blending mode and/or its opacity changed.
