Broken Pix Symbol

Aug 17, 2012 1:30 PM

In PSE 9 when I "sometimes" save a picture, I get a broken picture symbol. I have gone to file/reconnect and this does not work. I can't figure out what I'm doing different when this happens, as it only happens now and then. Any fixes or suggestions to what or how I'm going about this wrong would be appreciated. After working on a photo for a while to have this happen is very frustrating!

    What is the file type and size of the photo?

    Is the file a JPG, or a RAW file from your camera, or another file type?

    Ugh!  Intermittent problems are almost impossible to troubleshoot....

     

    Where is your catalog located (use Help...System Info to see the path)?  Is it on your internal drive or on an external drive, or a networked drive?

    Use Edit...Preferences...Media Analysis.  If you've got any media analysis options set, try disabling them.

    Is it possible that when you do a save, you are using a period in the file name (not counting the period in .jpg or .tif or .psd)?
