My PSE catalog recently became corrupted and since I have 35 GB of photos it was in any case not being very responsive. To speed things up I reorganized my subdirectory structure and created multiple (smaller) catalogs. I would now like to share some files online but my 2 GB online limit is already devoted to previous backup/synchronization from a now non-existant catalog (and lost albums). I'm afraid that if I select syncing with what is currently in my library at photoshop.com things will get confused (with old albums from online being added to my new catalog or who knows what), but I am reluctant to delete the online albums (since that is now the only place they exist). Actually, I started syncing today and a listing of all the albums online were immediately imported into PSE, but since those albums don't exist in any existing catalog on my PC, the photos in those albums are not visible offline.
I would love suggestions about how to proceed. Should I delete the (online) albums now listed on my PC. Do I have to start all over online? Should I give up trying to share photos from multiple catalogs?
I now have 5 catalogs (all new) and would eventually like to share photos from all of them. My impression is that the online feature was not designed to deal with any of my present circumstances (i.e., new catalogs, multiple catalogs, large photo collections).
I don't rely on the online backup feature by the way. I back up my collection on an outboard hard drive.
It seems crazy to give up on photoshop.com as a way to share photos and use fliicker or Facebook instead, but that may be the easiest way to go. Any help would be appreciated.
