My photoshop elements 9 keeps freezing, can you help me?
Please explain in detail :
Is it freezing when working in the Organizer or Editor ?
If in Organizer, then how any images are in it ?
If in Editor, then what all tools you are working with ?
Please try couple of probable solutions as mentioned below:
1. Close Elements.
2. Launch the Photoshop Elements Welcome Screen and hold down ctrl + alt + shift as you click Editor.
3. Continue to hold the keys until you see a message box asking if you want to delete Photoshop Elements settings file; click Yes. Elements will open with default preferences.
Solution 2: In case any network printer is attached try to launch without network or printer uninstall or make different printer as default.
Solution 3: Try launching with anti-virus off or removing PSE from conflicting list.
On the drive on which you have installed PSE,on my machine it is on C:
Go to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 10\Locales\<locale>\Plug-Ins\Import-Exportand you will find twain plug-in. Remove that plug-in from that location and copy it somewhere else.
Now launch PSE and check if it works.

In organizer I have thousands of images, which is another question I have. I put my images on an external hard drive to keep the numbers down on my computer however I noticed that elements seems to keep them. Is that my problem and if so what should I do?
Moving images over to edit freezes and drops many times too or won't move over at all.
Organizer doesn't store your images. It just keeps thumbnails and the location info about your images so that it can display them in full resolution when the source (hard disk in your case) is available.
If Editor is freezing, please try increasing RAM in Performance preference in Editor and see if it helps.
