Premiere Elements 12 does not support .tga files which were often used in Title Templates in much earlier versions of Premiere Elements.
From your prior threads, you appear to be working with Premiere Elements 12 in Windows 7 64 bit. So, it is curious why you should be getting "Where is the file Tropical_7.tga?" when you select Titles & Text/Travel/Beach Resort.
Is there a blue pan at the top right corner of the thumbnail for the Beach Resort choice in the Premiere Elements display of title templates? If so, right click that blue ban and select download now. Does that action solve the problem in any way? If not, then
Let us do this to troubleshoot...
1. Look for the file beachresort_title.png in the following path
Local Disk C
and in the Beach Resort Folder you should find the beachresort_title.png file. Is it there? Could you post a screenshot of what you find in that Beach Resort folder? If not, then just post what you find there by name.
We will base the next phase of the troubleshooting based on your reply. More later.
Add On...the following is a link to another thread here which ran into the "Where is tropical_7.tga?" issue.
There was never any follow up to it.
Depending on your reply to the prior post, we might consider, a ccleaner run through (regular cleaner and registry cleaner parts).
We might go so far as
Sign Out of Premiere Elements 12 Help Menu/Sign Out
Uninstall via Control Panel
ccleaner run through
Reinstall with antivirus and firewalls turned Off
I found the file exactly where you said it was going to be. I thought I could just convert to TGA, rename and browse there, but that would have been too easy, as you say that format is not supported.
As far as CCleaner, I don't ever use that kind of software. More often than not it does more damage than good.
It sounds like I can't use that title or if I do I have to ignore the TGA dialog every time I open it.
That Tropical_7.tga should not be in the version 12 Beach Resort Folder at all. The Beach Resort Folder is working off the file there name beachresort_title.png.
Delete the Tropical_7.tga from there. You should be able to restore later from the Recycle Bin if it becomes necessary in the troubleshooting. But I see no rationale in doing anything but getting rid of it. Have you recently installed any of the Creative Suite programs?
Let see what happens.
ccleaner would be a good idea. I have used it for years when necessary without any horror stories. But, I understand your caution. But, for now, let us see what we can accomplish without resorting to ccleaner.
Yeah, that file is gone. I agree it's not needed.
Not sure which creative suite programs you are referring to, but I think the answer is no. I already had Lightroom on my computer and recently installed PE 12. I did one update after that and that was it.
I appreciate your tenacity! :-)
Thanks for the follow up.
But, after you have deleted that .tga and restarted the program, did the "Where is the file.....?" message stop appearing?
By Creative Suite programs, I was thinking CS 4 or 6 or CC Premiere Pro, Photoshop, and the like.
Yes, this comes up every single time.
