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.

    Did you install from, are you running from an admin account? And where are these photos located?

    To see whether you're running from an admin account, go to system preferences>Users & Groups, click your account and see if "allow user to administer this computer" is checked.

    Also, macs have had right click for many years. To enable it, go to system prefs>mouse>point and click>secondary click and choose what you want to do.

    Okay.

     

    Tried to move it to the Mac but it kept crashing. Uninstalled

    You need to explain this better. How did you move and how uninstall?

    Well, if you had discs you just wasted a bunch of money buying the same thing again, but at this point the thing to do is to figure out why the organizer is crashing. Which version of OS X?

    Also did you uninstall with the uninstaller in the PSE 10 folder in applications? I hope so.

    Can you save to the internal drive? What format is the external?

    To find your OS X version, click the black apple at the upper left of the screen and choose About this Mac:

    Wait, don't do that. I was just trying to figure out if your problem was with PSE. If your external is formatted NTFS, for example, macs can read that format but not write to it.

    If you're not sure how a disk is formatted, when it's connected and turned on, go to applications>utlities>disk utility and click it in the list on the left. Then down at the bottom of the screen you should see:

    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.

    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.

    Otherwise, you can format as fat32 or exfat (although if you're using XP I don't know if that understands exfat).

    Another good source for drives is OWC (macales.com). I have no affiliation with them, just find their products are good.
