      John…download the movie to your desktop. Then right click on it…you will see an option “open with” and you should see your VLC option. Click it to play

    Great info. NOW…If I only understood how to use layers…we’d be in business!!! :-)
    I need detailed instructions on “Layers”. I’ve edited for years & still can’t do layering.

      Hello Mardee I have exactly the same problem as you ., I am able to do much of my photo manipulation without using layers and just saving as a new image retaining the original untouched.. There are several help videos at hand on the Elements web site which could help you . I understand the concept of layers but not the actual implimentation of them and the reasons for using a layer in the first place. I guess I wil have to try to understand and use them soon though as at 77 I don’t really have a lot more time left.
