Photoshop Elements: How do I "tile or cascade" several photos in Full Edit's workspace?

When using Edit in PSE9, how do I get several photos to show in a "tile or cascade form" in the work space. Several photos would show this way in PSE6 and it was much easier than trying to remember a photos name on the top bar or go to the bin all the time. My bin is often closed so I have more work space.

Two ways:

1. Use the arrange menu at the top of the editor workspace.



2. If you work in the floating window mode Window>Images

On my PSE9 full Edit screen:

Option 1 -- The Arrange Icon does not have a "Float All in windows" option showing above, "New Windows," "Actual Pixels," and etc.

Option 2 -- Under Windows>Images the "Tile, Cascade, Float in Windows,Float all in Windows, and Consolidate All to Tabs," is in faded gray and not active. "New Window, MatchZoom, and Match Location," are bright and active.

So my problem is still there, I cannot Cascade more than one photo in the same window and working space.

In the pse 9 editor go to Edit>Preferences>General and check:
Allow Floating Documents in Full Edit Mode.

That should make those options available after you use Float all in Windows.

Wow thanks I have been trying to figure this out for 3 days. Why do they make things harder to find in the newer versions such as printing multiple prints.

I am frustrated and disgusted with PS 10. I want to have sever cascading photos open on the workspace. Why can't this be accomplished easily. I can't find "allow floating documents". Where is it hiding. The selection of "cascade" is grayed out. I have spent too much valuable time trying to get this option when it should be so easy!

Hi D. Hamiliton,

You can find it in Photoshop Elements Preferences dialog:

I have recently purchased PSE 10 and have checked the "allow floating docs" preference and am in full edit. All options for how to view images continue to be grayed out.

I am using Photoshop elements 2020, screens were different, but I knew what to look for in seeing your answer. This did the trick! Here are the screenshots


Thank You!
