Photoshop Elements: Restore missing effects or creations.

HELP!!! I have accidentally deleted the wrong photo effects in the effects palette. Do I need to re-download PSE 7? If I do, I have installed other actions to the palette, will I lose my new actions?

Try recreating the media database first:

1. Navigate to:
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0\Locale\en_us
Windows Vista/7: C:\Program Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0\Locale\en_us

2. Rename MediaDatabase.db3 to MediaDatabase.old

3. Relaunch Photoshop Elements Editor.

If that doesn't work, then you have actually deleted the file that creates this effect and you will have to reinstall Photoshop Elements.

Additionally, if you previously had Photoshop Elements 6 installed, review this document: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/893/cpsid_89...
