PSDs not compatible with PSE
Imgine my job when I thought I could download a PSD file and digital imagine my disappointment when I downloaded and couldn't make my first digital scrapbook layout page...all because I use PSElements and there was not a disclaimer in sight. Really?
PSDs not compatible with Photoshop Elements
I appreciate the gesture of a downloadable PSD file of this issue's sketch. Unfortunately, as a Photoshop Elements user I am unable to make use of the sketch: it contains layer groups or sets, which cannot be separated by PSE or even edited unless simplified. In effect, all of the (overlapping!) photo templates end up on a Single layer, making them useless for clipping photos to them. It would be wonderful if future PSD files might be saved without layer sets? Then those of us who've only invested in the amateur software can use them too!
