Lost Organizer's photos!

Tags: #lost_photos #organizer_11

All Albums and Photos have disappeared from the PS Elements 11 Organizer!  I had been working with them along with my classes on PSE11. When I opened Organizer today, there was nothing there, no photos. I tried to Restore Computer to earlier time, but that didn't work.  I know they've got to be out there somewhere! Can you please advise?

    Have you tried just doing a hard drive search for them?

    Hi there! Because the forum you originally posted in is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop, I moved your question to the Photoshop Elements forum, where you'll get more specialized help.

    If the photos appear to have disappeared from your Organizer, then a possible cause is that you (accidentally) opened an empty catalog or (accidentally) created a new catalog.


    Search your computer for other catalog files, they are *.pse*db


    If you find some other catalogs, try double-clicking on them.

    Click File >> Manage Catalogs and see if there are more than one catalogs.
