I updated my software from Elements 7 to 11 some weeks ago but I'm still not happy with the structure of my new Organizer. I'm a planespotter which means something like collecting photos of different aircrafts and airlines like post stamps. In PSE 7 I used the tag- and category-tool for organizing these photos by airport. This part works in PSE 11 as well.
But I also used to create one 'Smart-Album' for each airline I've ever seen. The big advantage was that I had to create such an album for just one time and every photo I ever named e.g. "Lufthansa" was automatically sorted into the corresponding smart-album. So I had a list that showed all airlines I've taken at least one photo of.
See the screenshot for better understanding:
I know that Adobe replaced the smart-albums in PSE 11 by the 'saved searches'. But I don't like this tool, it's not what I'm looking for. I want a visible list of my airlines and it should be created more or less intuitively/automatically, to have not more to do manually than before (efficiency and clarity is very important to me thinking of 5000+ photos and 300+ airlines).
So my questions would be:
1. Is there any possibility to manage it the way I described above in PSE 11?
2. If not, do you have another idea that could be suitable for my requirements?
Thank you so much for your help!
Does that mean Photoshop Elements?
If yes, you are in the Premiere Elements video editing forum
If you go to the Forums Index http://forums.adobe.com/index.jspa
You will be able to select a forum for the Adobe product(s) you use
Okay. I'm sorry for this! Don't know what was wrong with me.
