    I downloaded the Photoshop Elements Tryout from Adobe, but when I try to expand the compressed .hqx file using stuffit expander it fails.

    Although it appears to go through the motions of expanding, it doesn't give me the tryout folder.

    Anyone else with this problem?
    Any suggestions?

    I've a Rebel XT on order, so I wanted to check out Elements with RAW files - otherwise I've been happy with Gimp so far.

    Found this fix via Google after a few searches, may be useful for someone else. :)

    Go open StuffIt Expander 10 and open its "Preferences..." under the "StuffIt Expander" menu. In the "Expansion" preference pane, make sure you've unchecked the "Continue to expand if possible" box. After you do this, try expanding this file again. You'll get a ".sit" file after it's been expanded. You'll need to drag and drop this file, "Adobe Photoshop Elements.pkg.sit", onto StuffIt Expander again to get the final product package (i.e., ".pkg" file) installer.
