All of our products are delivered as zipped (compressed) files and must be unzipped before importing them into Photoshop, Elements, Word or any other software. You will receive an error message if you try to open them in your software without unzipping them.
Your computer probably came with unzip software already loaded. If not, there is a list of free unzip programs at TheFreeSite.com.
Right-click on the zipped file and choose "Extract All." (In Vista and Windows 7, double-click on the zipped file and choose "Extract All" from the shortcut bar at the top.)
Make a note of where you are placing the unzipped folder. Once it's unzipped, you can delete the zipped version.
After the file is unzipped, open Photoshop or Elements in Edit mode. Select File > Open from the Menu Bar and use the "Look in: " box to find the unzipped folder.
Ctrl click (Mac: Cmd Click) all of the items you want to bring into Elements and then click Open.
This will bring the items into the Photoshop or Elements editing window.
