I installed ACDSee on my system and my tags for Photoshop Elements 10 disappeared.  How do I get them back?

    Push the slider to the right to increase the size of the thumbnails, also make sure when you click the view menu, that details is checked.

    Go to:

    File >> Catalog

    Highlight your catalog in the bottom box and click the repair button. If there is nothing to repair click Repair Anyway. Then repeat and click the Optimize button.

    Are you by any chance using Folder Location view. You need to be in thumbnail view to search the entire catalog for keywords. You can change your view by clicking the display button near the top right of Organizer.

    Try restoring a previous version of your catalog file:

     

    1. In Organizer, use Help...System Info and make a note of the location of your catalog.
    2. Close PSE.
    3. Open Task Manager, and on its "Processes" tab, kill any running Adobe or PhotoshopElements processes.
    4. In Windows Explorer, browse to that catalog directory.
    5. Right-click on the "catalog.pse10db" file and choose "Properties".
    6. Click on the "Previous Versions" tab, and select a version that predates your installation of ACDSee.
    7. Hit the "Restore" buttton.
    8. Reboot and see if your tags are back.
