    Hello,

    Just putting this in the archives so that other people will hopefully
    be able to find it doing a search since it took me quite some time to
    get things working correctly.

    Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 for the Mac does not like being run as a
    non-admin (Administrator) user. The things that you have to do to get
    PSE to run as a non-admin user can be found at:

    http://forums.macnn.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=237093

    Copy and pasting (most of) the instructions (go to the URL for full
    details). All of my editing is indicated in square brackets:

    1. Log into the admin account

    2. Install PSE3 as you would any application

    [...]

    3. Launch PSE

    [...]

    4. From the Help menu select "Photoshop Elements Help"

    5. In Help, click on the Index tab and then drill down and select a
    help topic (any topic will do)

    6. In Help, click on the Glossary tab and drill down and select a
    glossary term (again, any topic)

    [...]

    7. In Terminal, enter: [all one line]

    sudo chmod o+w "/Library/Application
    Support/Adobe/PhotoshopElementsHelp/en_US/Cache/57/3.0/en_US/html/page"

    [...]

    8. In Terminal, enter: [all one line]

    sudo chmod o+w "/Library/Application
    Support/Adobe/PhotoshopElementsHelp/en_US/Cache/57/3.0/en_US/html/glossary"

    [...]

    9. In Terminal, enter: [all one line]

    chmod o+rw "/Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 3/Photoshop
    Elements
    Help.app/Contents/MacOS/Opera.app/Contents/Resources/Styles/browser.css"

    10. In Terminal, enter: [all one line]

    chmod o+rw "/Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 3/Photoshop
    Elements
    Help.app/Contents/MacOS/Opera.app/Contents/Resources/Styles/user.css"

    [...]

    11. In Terminal, enter: [all one line]

    sudo chmod o+x "/Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 3/Photoshop
    Elements Help.app/Contents/MacOS/Photoshop Elements Help"

    [...]

    And one final step:

    12. Go to http://www.adobe.com/misc/bugreport.html and provide your
    customer feedback on Adobe's inept installer for Photoshop
    Elements


    Please take the time to do step 12 so that Adobe will get a clue
    about how their programs should be installed.

    Hopefully this will be useful to someone.
