Photoshop Elements 5 Organizer Recovery

Mar 16, 2013 3:41 PM

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?

 

Thank You

Gary

    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.

     

    Thanks

    Yes, you can try to recover your catalog file while in Safe Mode. It is *.psa, you would have to search your hard disk(s) for it, and also instruct Windows XP to search in hidden folders.

    Yes, put the photos back to their EXACT original locations. The *.psa file can go anywhere, then doubleclick on it.
