Hi, please help!
I have recently found a few hundred photos in a trial version of adobe photoshop album starter edition 3.0. I understand that this program has been discontinued. I used this program to import/download pictures directly from my camera, so I cannot find them anywhere in 'My Pictures'. What I would like to know is there some way of retrieving my precious photos? Can I get an unlock code to access the photos and move them to a current file? Or is there another adobe program I can download to retrieve these pictures?
It is so frustrating being able to see these pictures are stored in the computer, however I am unable to access or retrieve them!
Thank you in advance.
What you see is a low resolution remnant of the original files, not the files themselves. When a photo is 'imported' into the program, a small thumbnail is drawn, and cached to the database; if the original source files were moved or deleted, then all that remains are the low resolution remnants, not the files themselves.
There have been a few that have figured out how to open the Starter Edition database, and strip out the low resolution thumbnails, but I could not offer advice on how to do that. I would just take screen shots and save those as separate files, but they would be of very low quality.
