    Start with your main hard drive and then go to the Library folder. There are three different Library folders on your Mac:

    One is in your user account. You don't want this. Path is /Users/yourusername/Library

    One is in System-Library. You don't want this either. Path is /System/Library

    One is in "Your hard drive"->Library which is directly on root. You know that by clicking on the folder and choose "Get info". If the path starts with /Library, then you are on the root Library folder. This is the Library folder you want.

    There are two possible places to paste the layer style depending on your system:

    1. Library>Application Support>Adobe>Photoshop Elements>6.0>Photo Library>Creations>Layer Styles

    2. Library > Application Support > Adobe > Photoshop Elements > 6.0 > Locale > en_US > Photo Creations > Layer Styles

    *Note: replace 6.0 with 7, 8, or 9 if you are installing more current versions of Elements.

    Change the name of the mediadatabase.db3 file here:

    Library>Application Support>Adobe>Photoshop Elements>6.0>Locale>En US

    It doesn’t matter what you rename it. You can call it mediadatabaseOLD.db3 if you like - you are just renaming it to save a copy of it.



    Open PSE and wait for it to rebuild the mediadatabase.

    Then you can find the Style under "Show All."
