PS Elements problem.

Recommended Posts

I'm have a problem with the organizer portion of the program. I'm getting lock ups that are forcing me to reboot. I have no problems with the editor portion of program. I have over 15000 images in the organizer and I'm wondering if this could be to much for the Elements to handle.

If any of you have any idea what could be causing the lock ups I would sure like to hear about it

Could you be a bit more specific? Which version, when does it freeze up?

If I remember you can do a catalog recovery. Should be under File>Catalog> then choose recover. Both elements and photoshop can have corrupt data base issues and both give you the option to rebuild them. Keep in mind this may take "hours" to complete, many hours. Good luck.

Its PSE 6. I don't think the catalog is corrupted, all my images seem to be there. Its hard to tell for sure with the amount of images I've got. Perhaps a general house cleaning is in order.

The problem usually occurs when when I select images I want to open in the editor or when I am importing raw files.

Thanks for responding. This might just be the excuse I need to buy lightroom.

I still think you are looking at a data base problem. As far as I know that has nothing to do with the images in the catalog, just how Elements sees them. I don't believe a recovery will do anything at all to the images themselves, just the data base. I think this is how Adobe recommends a "general house cleaning".

One of the things I didn't care about with Lightroom was the way it organizes images. It is very similar to PE so that may actually be a benefit. I believe there is an import system in Lightroom that will use the catalog from Elements. Make sure you do a search on the proper way to that for a smooth transition.

I think I have might have solved my elements problem (I hope). I just got an offer from Adobe to upgrade from Elements to Photoshop CS4 for $299. Well for better or worse I took the plunge.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
