Elements: PSE 11 - Where did the "Reveal All" command go?

What happened to Image-Resize-Reveal All that's been in photoshop elements since version 1?

I agree, Dan. I hope they put it back in the next iteration. Though, I don't expect I'll be buying PSE12. I'll likely wait for PSE13, unless I own a license for CS6/7 by then.

Thanks. Yeah. Not sure why it was removed. I've forwarded this to the team for their consideration. Hopefully the action helps as a workaround.

Thanks, Jeffrey! The action DOES help as a workaround. (It's much easier than saving the file in PSE11 and reopening it in an older version of PSE just to use the "Reveal All" feature.)

It would be even better if the Recompose tool would include a button to easily access this feature. Or, perhaps, it could automatically trigger a prompt to ask the user if a "Reveal All" is desired after the recompose has completed, since the whole point of the recompose tool is to enable a crop which is not supported by the original composition.

Oh no, I can't stand that super light gray interface. The top one is so soothing to my eyes. And what's with the plain Adobe icon. Is it a wanna be Windows 8 icon. Adobe is going down hill. Now they don't see .eps files. Must be a new designer on Elements. They are changing everything. I still think Adobe and Microsoft are in cahoots with each other. No wonder they're dropping XP support. They are helping Microsoft sell Windows 8.

I just had to save my image in PSE11 and reopen it in PSE9 in order to access this feature. Was this feature moved somewhere else? Why is such a useful feature missing in the latest version of the software?

What is the point of having the "Recompose" feature, if the newly extended portion of the image is hidden?

Try: Image>Rotate>Straighten Image

Thanks, Bill. That's better than nothing. In my test, it seemed to kind of do a "Reveal All" and then made my image crooked. I could make this work, but it still seems easier to save the image in PSE11, reopen in PSE9, Reveal All, save, and reopen in PSE11. It's just ridiculous. The recompose feature is useful, but it needs "Reveal All" (which I think should happen automatically), and this feature has been removed. I don't get it.

I've created an action you can load to apply this command in Elements 11: http://www.tranberry.com/photoshop/Im...

Download it, unzip it and drag the .atn file on top of the Elements Editor application icon to load it.

Thank you so much, Jeffrey! That's terrific!
However, the zip file is empty (except for a folder named "__MACOSX", which is empty). Would you please try uploading that action again?

Thanks for restoring the Image>Resize>Reveal All command in photoshop elements 12.

That's good news! Now I just need to decide if that and Content Aware Move are worth the cost of the upgrade.

I've purchased multiple versions of Photoshop Elements and Lightroom, but even as a (struggling, self-employed) professional photographer, I couldn't justify the cost of the full version of Photoshop. Then I heard about the Photoshop Photography Program. Even though I've already purchased Lightroom (versions 3, 4, and 5), I was excited at the prospect of getting Photoshop for $10/month (and getting future versions of Lightroom thrown in as well). But, I've never purchased the full/real Photoshop before, so I'm not eligible.

Now I'm looking to add PaintShop Pro X6 to my toolkit. Nobody ever talks about it, so I don't know if it really lives up to its promise of being an alternative, professional-quality tool, but it costs about the same as Photoshop Elements, and I don't see a lot of value in upgrading from Elements 11 to 12 (just for Content Aware Move).
