You can click on the hourglass picture and the real picture will appear on full screen. It used to upload and be able to view the pictures in thumbnails but not now ,I don't know what happened.

Hi

This happens with photoshop when the images uploaded are too large for your computers RAM to handle. It often occurs with images as an example over 12 megapixels. If your computers RAM is occupied with other background tasks this can also imply a cause as elements can be a taxing program to run.

Solution

1) When running Elements close any background programs that are running and not required.

2) Rebuild your thumbnails - select all the images in your catalog and choose the Edit > Update Thumbnail for Selected Items command (Control+Shift+U).

In older versions of elements the problem is corrected by doing the following - you may find this helps if the above fails:

Create a lower-resolution copy of the image in the Editor, and then save it in a Version Set along with the original. (Older Version of Elements)

  • In the Organizer, select the image, click the Edit button, and choose Go To Standard Edit (Photoshop Elements 3.0 and 4.0) or Go To Full Edit (Photoshop Elements 5.0)
  • In the Editor, choose Image > Resize > Image Size.
  • Select the Resample Image option in the Image Size dialog box, and lower the resolution to 72 dpi to reduce the image; click OK.
  • Choose File > Save As, and save your file (for example. as a JPEG). Because the low-resolution image is only a placeholder for the original image, the quality of this image doesn't matter.
  • In the Save Options section of the Save As dialog box, select Include In The Organizer and Save In Version Set With Original
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks

Here is my suggestion (with a tip of the hat to Barb O for some hints she sent me)
Close Organizer.
Open Windows Explorer and click Tools>Folder Options>View and then be sure Show Hidden Files and Folder is clicked on and then Apply to All Folders (this is just to be sure we can see some things Adobe hides by default).
I am assuming you are using the default Organizer location so go to
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\Catalog Folders and find the My Catalog folder. I am talking the folder, not the My Catalog.PSA file.
Move this folder to your Recycle Bin, but do not erase it yet.
Open Organizer and see if you notice any difference. There are some "support" files in this folder, including your thumbnails, that will get rebuilt so it may take a few minutes. If you start to see your thumbnails reappear, do the "Nanny-Nanny-hoo-hoo" dance while the machine builds all the thumbnails
Hopefully this will correct the problem.

If this does not fix the problem, I would then try this:
Close Organizer and repeat the steps above.
Look in C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\x.0\Organizer and find a status.dat file
Move this file to your recycle bin and open Organizer.
UserName will be your user name
x.0 will be the version of PSE you have 3.0, 4.0 or 5.0

if both the above methods fail..... i wud suggest you to reinstall adobe....
thank you for using fixya
have a nice day

Install photoshop elements 6 for windows 7, it does not open at all after installation.


You have to wait for the information about the compatibility of the Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 7. You can upgrade to Adobe Photoshop 8 which is completely compatible with Windows 7. You can check the compatibility here. Check event viewer for the error message, for this click on start menu type Event Viewer and press Enter. It would be better to check with Adobe for what operating systems that Photoshop Element 6 would be supported. However you can try installing Adobe Photoshop Element 6 in a fresh installed Windows 7.
I hope this helps.

Can't get pictures from Photoshop Album Starter 3.2.


If you can see your photos on the Album timeline then this means that the thumbnails have been created OK so it should be that your jpegs are on you PC somewhere do a search for one of the filenames on you r C: drive to see if they can be found, this will tell you the folder that they have been saved in if you want to can then copy them all back onto your SD Card.

The default folder for import varies you may have asked for them to be copied to an obsure folder location the search method is the best way to see if you can recover them.

Hope this helps

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!!
