    organise catalog by file name

    Pete@pkfoto

      I wish to organize my catalog by file name not by the metadata from the photo. I am scanning all my slides dating back from 1977 to electronic form and do not wish my 1977 photos to appear as 2014 photos. I use a file name of yyyy/mm/dd followed by shot number to organise my photos but I cannot get the organizer to do this!!  I do NOT wish to create albums for my library (I have already done that in their file organisation to begin with!) Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Peter

          What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?

           

          For now assuming Premiere Elements 12/12.1 with Elements Organizer 12/12.1, what is the hang up with opening the Elements Orgaizer with the Sort by of Name (associated with View Menu/File Names)?

            Hi ATR

             

            I am running Elements 10, on a Windows 8.1 system. All the helps and FAQ's mention something about file/manage but not found on this version of Elements - and your suggestion on Sort by Name not an option in this version either!

              Thanks for the Premiere Elements and computer information.

               

              As for Sort By: including

              Name

              Newest

              Oldest

              Import Batch

              I find that only in my version 12/12.1 Windows.

               

              In version 11 Windows, there is only

              Sort By:

              Newest

              Oldest

              Batch

               

              I have seen no Sort By: in version 10,

              but I wonder, with the way you have named your files, would it not work for you

              a. View Menu/with Show Files Names selected

              and

              b. Setting for Newest or Oldest?

              Add On...could you point me to where you are reading about

              "All the helps and FAQ's mention something about file/manage"?
