import from scanner give error message "This file already exists in this catalogue"

Aug 27, 2013 8:24 PM

I can import from the scanner occasionally, but often times get this error message.  " this file already exists in this catalogue" and the scanned picture is discarded.

    I see others have had it as well, but no solutions were posted. I'm running Photoshop elements 11 with all current updates.

    Check to see whether they have been dumped in a version set. You should see a right pointing arrow on the thumbnail. Click on it to expand the set.


    If you find the batch inside a version set it is possible to select them all and remove them so that they are treated as independent images.
