    Importing video/photos from Organizer using Get Media command in the Project Workspace.

      I wish to import video/photos from elements organizer as it seem it should be fairly convenient. I understand this can be done using drag and drop. But how?

            I was waiting for you to supply program version/computer information so that I could give you a reply specific to your situation. In the absence of

            that, please let me give you information related to version 11, 12, or 13 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit before your thread gets moved through the other threads out of

            sight. Hopefully your question will related to one of the programs I have mentioned.

             

            Expert workspace

             

            If you open those programs to the Expert workspace, select Add Media/Elements Organizer, an Elements Organizer panel will pop up with media choices from the Elements Organizer.

            You can get them into the Premiere Elements Expert workspace Project Assets/Timeline two ways

            a. you click on the file's thumbnail in the panel to select it, and then click on the Add Files button at the bottom right of that panel. That puts the file on the Timeline and also puts a copy in Project Assets.

            b. you can click and drag the file's thumbnail from that panel to the Timeline. That puts the file on the Timeline and also puts a copy in Project Assets.

             

            Quick workspace

             

            You can do essentially the same thing. However, there is no Project Assets Palette for storage of the file's that you are importing into the project.

            In this workspace there is a Filmstrip with scene spaces. Your file will go into a scene space.

             

            Please let us know if the above targeted the information that you sought.

             

            Thank you.

              I thank you for your reply and apologise that I was unable to acknowledge it immediately. I  have read your reply but I' m not sure how I can translate it to my situation as I am working from Elements version 10. My computer is using Windows 7 and has 8GB RAM and loads of memory.

                  Absolutely brilliant! Thank you so much for saving me from tearing out what little of my hair remains. I've fiddled around trying various moves for 2 years to get to this point. Thank you again.
