My Mac is running OS X 10.9.5 I have Photoshop Elements 12 & I'm new to the whole photoshop thing, but after running only a few actions, such as whitening teeth, & trying to add a blur, the whole thing freezes & I have to force quit the program loosing any work I've done. Is there something I may have installed wrong or is the program not running properly? Majority of the time when it freezes, it's after using the selection tool.

Have you installed the Elements 12.1 update?
Also, you may need to install this plugin: http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/p...

Also, freezes and crashes are very different things that should not be confused.
Freeze = car won't start, or stalled
Crash = car exploded
