This is a topic that has come up here before. One suggestion is to enlarge the view of each thumbnail as much as you can and take a screenshot of each one.
Thanks. I was hoping that there would be an alternative. Fortunately there
are only a few photos. Thanks.
Wish they would fix "reconnect". But this version does indicate "offline
media" so maybe that will help in the future.
Please navigate to catalog folder (location can be determined from 'help->System info') and see if there is a folder saying 'previews'. If while importing you chose to 'generate previews' then this folder might contain previews to offline file.
I have no such folder anywhere on my had drive. That was present in earlier
versions and I had been able to do that with those versions going back to
Album 1. I think they consolidated the folder into files for PSE11. But, I
had generated thumbnails in several different databases and no can find.
Thanks for suggestion anyway.
