PS Elements problem.

6 posts in this topic

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

Shortage of memory? I have Elements on my laptop but don't use the organizer. That is a lot of images.

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.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
