In Photoshop Elements 5, how do I restore my organizer tags and collects after reloading Windows XP? Windows crashed but i can run in Safe Mode to get at my files/pictures which are backed up but is there something in Photoshop I can save to recover my organizer so that when reloading Windows XP and the App again the tags and collections remain?
Are you able to run Organizer? If yes, then you may take backup of your catalog using File >> Backup.
This backup file will bring in all your images, tags, albums and their associations to these files.
I am only able to run Windows in Safe Mode. Can't run Organizer. If that is required first, then I may have lost all the organization. I had hoped there were some files already saved that contain that information.
