Why does PSE 11 freeze when 'getting media' from SD Card on my Imac OS 10.8.4?
With no more info than that, nobody can say. Has it always done this? Do you leave photos on your card after importing them? Do you format the card in-camera or on your computer? Have you disabled iphoto as the photo getter?
Yep its always done it. Doesnt matter if you leave photos on card or not. I format the cards on my Camera and have disabled Iphoto as the getter for PSE as far as I know, i wondred whether it is due to conflicting apps. The photos import once I force quit and re-open PSE. Its not a major prob but slightly irritating.
Unless you're applying a metadata template, there isn't much percentage in using the downloader on a mac. Have you tried just dragging the folder with the photos off the card to where you want to put it, then using Get Photos>From Files and Folders? Does that work any better for you? Are you using a card reader, the camera itself or a card slot in your mac?
Nope havent tried dragging as I am putting card in slot expecting simplicity to work! I dont import photos to any other folder but am trying to import straight from card. I was hoping someone else had experienced the problem but maybe not. I will talk to Apple I think.
