Question about Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 - Mac/Windows

2 Answers

I am using Photoshop Elements 12, and it will not let me import any photos into it. Can you please help me? Thanks.

When I try to import photos, I get this message: The requested operation could not be completed because the catalog is currently locked by another process Then I am given the option to cancel or retry. Retry gives me "The catalog was busy and the requested change could not be completed." Then press OK. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but nothing changed and it still does not work.

Two options might help:

  1. Turn off Media Analysis using Edit > Preferences > Media Analysis then uncheck all check boxes there.
  2. Try repairing the catalog using the Repair function of the Catalog Manager.
    1. Make sure Photoshop Elements Editor is closed.
    2. Open the Catalog Manager.
    3. In the Catalog Manager, select the catalog that you want to repair.
    4. Click Repair.
    5. When the Elements Organizer finishes checking your catalog for errors, select Re-index Visual Similarity Data and then click Repair or Repair Anyway.

    Hope this helps

Import photos from Fuji 460 to computer


Transferring digital photos from your camera is necessary to clear your memory card. Adobe Photoshop Elements makes downloading photographs easy, or you can import pictures to your computer with Windows. Then you can make prints, copy photos to a CD or DVD, and share them online.

Hi,

It clearly seems that these two programs you are talking about are conflicting with each other. There are two scenarios on which we can work.

At this point of time what i would suggest you is to uninstall the program which came with the DVD Camcoder and Reinstall it again.

If it still does not work than you need to uninstall the Photoshop premier Elements and than check whether the Hitachi DVD software is working or not.

If it is working than you may have to compromise using the Photoshop premier Elements.

Note :- To uninstall a program you need to go to the "Control Panel" and you need to open "Add and Remove Program". Here you will see the list of programs installed on your computer, You may highlight the one you want to uninstall and click on "change/remove".

To install the Hitachi Software you can use the disk you have got with the DVD Camcoder.

Caution : Before you uninstall the Hitachi software make sure that you have the Hitachi software disk with you to reinstall it.

Hope you would find this as a good solution. Will wait for your raitings to find out whether it was of some help or not.

Thanks
Sammy

Every time I try to open the program, I'm getting this: Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0 (Editor) has stopped working. Windows can check online for solution to the problem. Check online for a solution and...


Do Solution 1 first, then try Solution 2. Proceed to Solution 3 only if you wish to operate your device directly from within Photoshop or Photoshop Elements Editor.
Solution 1: Disable the TWAIN plug-in. Photoshop and Photoshop Elements Editor do not load plug-ins whose file name begins with a tilde (~). Rename the TWAIN plug-in to prevent Photoshop and Photoshop Elements Editor from loading it.
To disable the TWAIN plug-in:
  1. Do one of the following:
    • If you are using a 32-bit edition of Windows:
      Photoshop CS4: Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
      Photoshop CS5: Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
      Photoshop Elements 6.0 Editor: Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
    • If you are using a 64-bit edition of Windows:
      Photoshop CS4: Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
      Photoshop CS5: Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
      Photoshop Elements 6.0 Editor: Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
    Note: If you do not know which edition of Windows you are using, see Determine whether your computer is running a 32-bit or a 64-bit edition of Windows (kb407673).
  2. Rename Twain_32.8BA to ~Twain_32.8BA. (You may not see the filename extension .8BA.)
When the TWAIN plug-in is disabled, you cannot operate your device by choosing File > Import > [Device name] in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
If you do not wish to operate your device directly from within Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, then you can use other software -- such as the software that came with the device, the Windows Scanner And Camera Wizard, or Windows Photo Gallery -- to operate the device and save image files from the device. (For instructions, see the documentation for the other software.) Then you can open those files in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
Solution 2: Disable older scanner files in Windows. If Solution 1 does not solve the problem, open the C:/WINDOWS/Twain_32 folder and move all files in that folder except the wiatwain.ds file to another location. Older scanning files in this folder can cause problems with more recent drivers and applications.
If you would like to operate your device directly from within Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, then proceed to Solution 3.
Solution 3: Troubleshoot installed drivers and re-enable the TWAIN plug-in. If you use a scanner, all-in-one printer, or another TWAIN-compatible device on your system, then the device's driver may be out-of-date. Download the latest version of the driver for your device from the manufacturer's website. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to install the driver. (If you have more than one TWAIN-compatible device, then download and install the latest driver for each device.)
After you have installed the latest driver for each device, re-enable the TWAIN plug-in and restart Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
To re-enable the TWAIN plug-in:
  1. Do one of the following:
    • If you are using a 32-bit edition of Windows:
      Photoshop CS4: Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
      Photoshop CS5: Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
      Photoshop Elements 6.0 Editor: Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
    • If you are using a 64-bit edition of Windows:
      Photoshop CS4: Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
      Photoshop CS5: Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
      Photoshop Elements 6.0 Editor: Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\
    Note: If you do not know which edition of Windows you are using, see Determine whether your computer is running a 32-bit or a 64-bit edition of Windows (kb407673).
  2. Rename ~Twain_32.8BA to Twain_32.8BA. (You may not see the file name extension .8BA.)
If Photoshop or Photoshop Elements successfully starts with the TWAIN plug-in enabled, then you can operate your device by choosing File > Import > [Device name].
If Photoshop or Photoshop Elements fails to start, then the driver for one or more TWAIN-compatible devices that you no longer have or no longer use may be causing the problem. (A driver will remain on the computer even after you disconnect a device.) Identify each device that you do not use, and then follow the manufacturer's instructions to completely remove each device's driver.
After you remove the driver for each device that you do not use, restart Photoshop.
If Photoshop or Photoshop Elements still fails to start, then the driver for one or more of the devices that you currently use is incompatible with the TWAIN plug-in. In that case, disable the TWAIN plug-in (see Solution 1: Disable the TWAIN plug-in) and leave it disabled. (You may also wish to periodically check the device manufacturer's website for driver updates. If an updated driver becomes available, then repeat this solution.)

How to scan photos in


Well if you are using an application similar to PhotoShop Elements X.X
You go to "File" and look for "import" or "Get Pictures" > "From files and folders"

Select the pictures you want and import them.

If touy are trying to download from the camera, go to File > Get from > Camera and import from there.

Hi there.

Do one of the following solutions: Solution 1: Remove the NOKIAManager.mox file.

  1. Exit Photoshop Elements.
  2. Open the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\moxplugins folder.
  3. Move the NOKIAManager.mox file to the Recycle Bin, or another location such as your desktop.
  4. Restart your computer.
Note: The NOKIAManager.mox plug-in file is required for Adobe Photo Downloader to download photos from a Nokia mobile phone. If you use a Nokia mobile phone, use Solution 2. If you later decide to use a Nokia mobile phone, either move the NOKIAManager.mox file back to the original location or reinstall Photoshop Elements.
Solution 2: Install or reinstall the Nokia PC Suite software.

Note: Only use this solution if you connect a Nokia mobile phone to your computer.

In order to communicate with a Nokia mobile phone, your computer must have the Nokia PC Suite software installed. Install the software to allow Adobe Photo Downloader to communicate with the phone and download photos from it. If you have previously installed Nokia PC Suite but are still getting this error message, uninstall and reinstall the software or upgrade to a newer version. For more information about Nokia PC Suite, contact Nokia or visit the Nokia web site.

Solution 3: Disable Adobe Photo Downloader.

  1. Open the Organizer in Photoshop Elements.
  2. Choose Edit > Preferences > Camera or Card Reader.
  3. Disable the Auto Launch Adobe Photo Downloader On Device Connect option.
  4. Click OK.
Note: This solution will prevent Adobe Photo Downloader from starting when Windows starts, and it will not appear automatically when you plug in a camera, card reader, flash memory drive, or other memory device. When you plug in one of these devices, and in order to download photos into the Organizer, you will need to start Photoshop Elements and choose File > Get Photos or Videos > From Camera or Card Reader.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
