I use Windows 8.1. Can I read PDD files using Photoshop Elements 14? If so, can I then convert the PDD files to Jpeg?

I believe Elements 14 will open PDD files and then allow you to save them to whatever format you want (e.g. JPEG).

Download the trial and try it for yourself: http://www.adobe.com/downloads.html

Tried to load trial version of Elements 14. Went to the website but got hung up in the Akamai Download Manager Installer window.

I tried the instruction in the window "Don't see the installer? Try reopening it." That didn't work.

In the window I tried "If installation does not automatically start, double-click the 'Akamai Download Manager Installer' file to continue the download process." but I couldn't find this instruction anywhere.

I can confirm that PSE14 can open .pdd files, like previous versions.
