Photoshop Elements 10 (Photo and Video) Organizer will open and stay open for a few seconds then close. I have uploaded a patch but it did not help. What else do I need to do?
Does this happen whether you open it from the welcome screen or directly from applications? Try starting the organizer while holding down the shft key to bring up the catalog manager, then select your catalog, repair and optimize.
This didn't help. Adobe support finally helped me correct this issue so it is not crashing anymore. Now it will not allow me to Edit and save my photos...Says "Could not save because write access was not granted"..
I am very proficient with the PC and generally dont need a tech at all to resolve my issues but this Mac is SO different. I don't know where anything is. He told me to right click last night and to my knowledge I could not right click with this mouse. I am really going to the store and take lessons once I get the aggravation resolved with this program
I originally installed the same Photoshop Elements 10 I had on my old PC. Did not consider the difference in computers. I had a license and could move it to a new computer. I tried it but the Organizer kept crashing so I uninstalled the original Photoshop I had and bought a new version and specified Mac.
Organizer is not crashing now. The tech assisted me in fixing that Thursday night. The only problem I still have is not being able to save my photos. becuase write access was not granted.. Figured I was messing up buying it again. They may have to give me the money back on Monday if we cant figure this out. I have not been able to use the problem since last weekend and the frustration level is about over the top. Have been looking at other programs.
I am looking for the version of OS X. I had assumed that it was the very latest version since I just purchased the machine last weekend..
The external drive is formatted: Windows NT File System (NTSF). This is the problem, right? I need to copy the pictures over to the hard drive in the Mac and disconnect the external drive??

Yes. Do you still need to be able to access the drive in Windows? If not, just use disk utility to reformat to Mac OS X Journaled Extended. If you want to be able to write to it from both platforms you have a couple of different formatting choices, each of which has advantages and disadvantages, or you can install a utility that lets OS X write to the NTFS drive.
If you google "mac write ntfs external drive" without the quotes you'll find several options. Some free, some not.
I know I still need it for the old PC. It crashed not long ago and we were able to recover but the backups are on the external. What are the disadvantages to installing the utility to write to the NTFS drive? Would it be like having and OS X formatted folder in it and moving the pictures into that folder?
No, basically, you're just letting the mac see it like it would a mac formatted drive and use it the same way. I think it may be slightly riskier than using a mac format (but you do have a backup of these photos elsewhere, right?). The most popular program has been something called macfuse, but it took them quite a while to get that to work with lion's 64 bit core, and I really don't know which one is best to use now. Macupdate has several to choose from.
