PSE 11 Mac will not quit

Mar 30, 2013 10:10 AM

PSE 11 won't quit when I quit the application. It stays in memory and force quit shows it not responding. I can't shut my system down unless I force quit PSE 11 first.

 

Help

    Is this the editor or the organizer? What do you see in activity monitor? Are you saying you can't quit the process there?

    Go to the organizer preferences>media analysis and be sure that all the auto analyzer functions are turned off.

    Did you just add a large number of images to your organizer? Are you using the organizer at all?

    Then I'm confused by this part:

     

    Cannot quit the process there, must force quit.

    Why can't you stop the process in activity monitor? What happens when you try?

    Try again and this time choose to sample the process and post the sample here (copy/paste), please.

    Have you tried repairing and optimizing your old catalog?

     

    And you don't use the welcome screen to start PSE, do you? You don't have it set to automatically open editor or organizer?

    Repair, then optimize.

    Do you mean that the organizer exits completely or just that you get the rainbow spinney?

    The tags which are there in image IPTC aren't there in database. They are actually a part of the image. If you want other images to have this tag or tag to appear in tag panel/with images in grid, you need to create the tag again.

    Let me explain this using a scenario. Suppose you have a JPEG (from your camera). As of now it won't have any tag info into IPTC. You imported this image into Organizer. Now you created a tag and applied on this image. At this point of time the tag is only in PSE catalog db file. Also if you import the same image into another catalog, it won't have any tag info in its IPTC.

    To write a tag (from pse catalog db file) to image's IPTC, you need to use 'File->Write keyword tag and properties info to Photos' for PSE10 and previous versions (File->Save keyword tag to metadata info' in PSE11). Once you do this, the tag is now present in both catalog as well as in image IPTC info'. Now if you import this image into any other PSE catalog, it will show the tag written in its IPTC but not present in this new catalog'

     

    let me know if you need more clarification.

    I had the same problem. Since I only need one photo editing suite, here's what I did. There might have been a conflict somewhere.

     

    1.  I uninstalled: Lightroom 4, The Gimp, PS CS2, Nikon NX2, PSE 8.

     

    2.  I went to "Utilities" and under disk maintenance repaired "Permissions"

     

    3. I shut down and re-booted.

     

    So far, so good.
