I have Photoshop Elements 8 and have been using it for a couple of years. I was working on a photo recently and the Edit function just quit working. Now any time I even try to open a photo in Photoshop it starts to open and as soon as the first screen appears it shuts down and returns to my desktop. I can't seem to figure out what is causing the problem. I am away from home for a few months or I would uninstall it and reinstall it to see if that would help. Do you have any suggestions?
