If you are referring to Photoshop Album Starter Edition, unlocking codes are no longer available (we aren't able to generate them because the app was discontinued several years ago).
Uninstall the program using the uninstaller. Your 'import' created links to the files on your drive, but did not 'ingest' the files themselves; they remain on the drive where they originally existed, so even without access to the Starter Edition app, the files remain accessible in Windows Explorer.
Thanks for your quick inquiry. I do have another follow up question before
I try the remedy you suggested.
I imported the files from a digital camera and deleted the images from that
source thinking I had access to them on my C Drive. The images are now
listed in an Adobe folder. If I uninstall Adobe, are you saying the files
currently in the Adobe folder will be accessible via Windows Explorer?
logic dictates you move the photos to somewhere you know, eg my pictures. Are you sure its not just thumbnails in the adobe folder? what size are they? i'd check they are THE photos, and move them to your own personal folder
Yes, they are thumbnails. However, when the page is displayed, a pop up box
from Adobe overlays the page and prompts me to register the product now or
later. While the pop up is on the screen I can not access the thumbnails.
If I select Register Later the entire screen disappears. If I select
Register Now it takes me through the entire process and then sends a note
stating the product is outdated.
Looking back, I should not have deleted the images on the camera. But after
being told the images had been exported successfully, I did. If you can
thing of anything that might help, I'm willing to try it.
if they are thumbnails, they aren't really any good for you as they will be too small, are you sure they aren't elsewhere on the computer. I guess if this is all you have then your stuck with it.
What attribute are the thumbnails? i am assuming not jpg as when you click them it launches the adobe program. So all i can think of is rename them to .jpg to allow you to use windows explorer
Windows® XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\My Documents\My Pictures\Adobe\Digital Camera Photos
Look in my pictures, Adobe, Digital Camera Pictures (or something like that. I forget the specifics now). You should see the files in there, even without the program installed.
