I tried these things and still no luck. When the program was working I changed it to start immediately in the Organizer, so now I cannot even get to the welcome page.
Moving this discussion to the Photoshop Elements forum. GBjohnson27 I am assuming you are using Photoshop Elements 11 due to your reference to the Editor. Is this correct?
To launch Welcome Screen, Go to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Elements 11 Organizer
There you will find Photoshop Elements 11.0.exe
Double click on it. It will launch Welcome screen.
Hold down the Ctrl, Alt, and Shift keys and click Organize. Keep holding down the keys until you see the Catalog window.
Select your catalog and click Repair. Select “repair anyway” even if PSE doesn’t find problems.
Then for good measure, click Optimize.
If repairing resolves your issue then fine else repeat the above steps, but click New to create a new catalog. If you’re able to import photos into the new catalog and the Organizer works fine, then problem can be old catalog.
Yes Elements 11. Today is a new day, and after several attemps and rebooting, things now seem to be working. Thanks.
