I've just started using Element 10. I've opened both 8 bit and 16 bit Tif files but annot access the Layers menu nor can I duplicate background layers. Any advice?

The layers work with JPEG files.

Do I need to open Tif files as .PSD files?

NEVERMIND!! I found that I was still saving Photomatix processed files in 16-bit! Changed to 8-bit and all is well.
