What happened to all the file formats that were in pse 10?

For example there is no generic eps format so i can't open any of the postscript files in Presets-Patterns-Postscript Patterns.

At least pse 11 should be able to open the presets it ships with.

What OS version are you using?

Are you also missing any filter plugins?

I'm sorry, i know better.

It's on a windows 8 x64 bit machine we have at work.

The photoshop elements 10 open dialog
(a few file format plugins may have been added)



The photoshop elements 11 open dialog:
(just installed on wednesday)



To my knowledge no one has tinkered with the photoshop elements 11 install.

I don't think any of the filters are missing other than the two filters under Filter>Video that were in pse 10, but there is not even a video listed on the filter menu in pse 11.

The postscript patterns are in:

Deinterlace and NTSC colors aren't listed - that's why video entry is gone.

And in Photoshop EPS/PDF is built into the app. So it could be a bug in Elements 11. We'll have to wait for the Elements folks to comment.

Ok i did find something in the pse 11 release notes:

http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elem...

I still would be curious as to why all the file formats were dropped in pse 11.

Hopefully someone from the elements side will explain.

Some of them are obsolete or rarely used.

But Targa and EPS are still in wide usage.
