I created an album, and then a slide show containing almost 200 slides. I was sure to save and name it; now I can't find it. When I open Photoshop Elements 9 there are no menu items,( i,e, File, View, Edit) across the top, so I see no way to "Open Saved Project". I can see the album listed on the right, and can access the original photos from there, but I can't find the slide show. Would LOVE some help as it took me hours to create, thanks.
There are many ways of finding your slideshows in Photoshop Elements Organizer.
1. If you know the name of your slideshow(s), you can search for them using the Search box at the top left of the Media Browser (the area with your image thumbnails).
2. You can have the Media Browser only display projects (such as slideshows):
A: Go to Find>By Media Type>Projects (keyboard shortcut Alt+4).
B: Go to View>Media Types and uncheck all other types besides Projects.
3. If you know when you created you slideshow(s), you can limit what the Media Browser displays to that date range (Find>Set Date Range or by using the Timeline (under the Window menu)).
4. If you are in the Folder Location Display mode, navigate to this folder:
A: Windows XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\Elements Organizer\Catalogs\PSE9\projects
B: Windows Vista/7 - C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Elements Organizer\Catalogs\PSE9\projects
Thank you for your reply. My frustration is that when I open the Organizer I don't have any of the buttons visible - no Find, no View. The top of the screen where I would normally see those buttons is totally black. I do have a search box, but it only searches the folders listed on the right; I can't specify project.
What is the screen resolution you using?
Might be a DPI issue, please refer the below link :
Out of interest, has the loss of the menu bar a recent thing or has it been like that for a long time?
Have you applied the 9.0.3 patch? http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5000
On the top right of your window do you see this?
Try selecting the Thumbnail view and then type psess into the search box.
Harshit, Yes! I followed the instructions and I was able to see the menu prompts at the top. FYI, the only was I was able to retrieve the project (Yes, I was successful!) was to use the last method you recommended - navigating down from the C: drive. thank you. The first two still did not bring it up.
Brian, I recently changed computers and reloaded PSE9. Apparently, I did not have the resolution settings the same as I did on my other PC. Harshits' recommendation of changing the type size to smaller worked for me. Thanks.
