Unwanted file transfer

Mar 8, 2013 10:34 AM

I somehow transferred desktop files to Photoshop Elements.  How can I send them back to my desktop so that I can access them?

    Your files are never "in" PSE. The organizer is just a database of the original images wherever it found them, so you must have moved them another way if they're gone from your desktop. If you used organizer to move them, just use the organizer's folder view to put them back again.

    Were you able to get it resolved?

    Well, it would be easier to give you some reasonable help if you could tell us  a bit more about what is happening, like did you move the photos in organizer or not, etc.

    Well, as I said in my first post, your photos are never actually "in" PSE. The organizer is just a database, a list of the photos in their original locations (unless you have a mac and used the from iphoto command, which is the only time PSE makes copies). If you use Windows, you might want to go to the File menu and check to see if you have any watched folders, and turn those off.
