Layer Effects and Adjustment Layers

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by NTL Newsgroups, Feb 15, 2004.

  1. Hello

    I've just bought a web site template. The file comes as a Photoshop PSD

    I've got Adobe Photoshop 5.0 Limited Edition - and the following two
    messages appear when i try to load the file.

    "This file contains adjustment layers. Adjustment layers are not supported
    by Photoshop Limited Edition. Discard and continue ?"


    "This file contains layer effects information. Layer effects are not
    supported by Photoshop Limited Edition. Discard and continue ?"

    What version is the minimum for having the above functionality ? (ie.
    version 5, 6, 7 ?)

    I'm not sure any version of PS LE (now called Elements) supports those
    things. Real Photoshop back to 4 has Adjustment Layers I believe. Layer
    Effects/Styles is a trickier issue. It depends on what version of
    Photoshop the template was made in. A psd made in 7 will not work
    perfectly in 6 for instance, but you can usually deal with it.

    Bottom line: you need Photoshop, not LE or Elements.

    In 5.0 should be ok.

  4. The only upgrade you can buy is Photoshop CS.
    I think you can get the upgrade for $299.

    Adjustment layers were introduced in Version 3.0.

    As for layer effects I'm not sure.
