Saving Modified Photos Using Elements Version 11

Jan 27, 2013 12:54 PM

I recently upgradedfrom "Elements 2" to Version 11.  I previously saved all my edited work in JPEG format and to the "My Pictures" folder.  I was then able to open all modified photos and share them with another computer without resorting to any specialised program.  I wish to continue to do the same using Version 11.  Having made several attempts without success to save modified photos using my well tried and successful method and having read the Manual to see why the process is not successful with Version 11 I am now exteremely frustrated.  Each attempt to save a modified photo results in a Thumbnail icon being loaded into the "My Pictures" folder with the elements 11 logo.  I then are only able to open the photo (which incidently does not carry the modified file name from the original) by way of the elements 11 program.  What am I missing/doing wrong?

    I think you are saving the images after editing as .psd. Can you try again and make sure that you select jpeg as the format of the new edited file in "Save As" dialog?

    Do you have your preferences set to save the files in My Pictures?

    I don't know how Adobe Photoshop Album got into the mix since you are using PSE 11 but I am thinking the file name  might be a problem(this is a guess). Try using a - instead of a "."(period). Usually when a "." appears in a name an extension follows(.jpg,.psd etc.)

    You had better check to see if you can open any of the pictures with the .1, you may be having a renaming fest.
