Just update you elements 13 windows 7.. I sat till midnight and found program data and ended up finding catalogue. I have deleted catalogue now. and unistalled elements 13. I'm hoping when I reinstall that it will be like brand new and I can start again afresh. I had messed up as I saw when viewing pictures in media there was a some media files and thought they should not be there so I deleted them. Possibly thinking about it now I mad a mistake. I previously did a slide show with media from the disc. I've only just started to use elements 13 as I used windows live previously for videos. Can you let me know also which photoshop or premier elements you use the most. Also if I import video files in why do I see them in my thumbnails view. This is where I went wrong and thought they should not be here. I've brought some books and trying to go through the learning process. What camera are you using? Lot of questions sorry. Thanks for any help. Russell

I suspect that we are in different Time Zones, so I did not see your posts with the information requested until this morning my time.
I use Premiere Elements 4, 7, 8.0/8.01, 9.0/9.0.1, 10, 11, 12/12.1, and 13/13.1 a lot since I am heavily involved in troubleshooting at the forum level as a forum visitor like yourself. I also have the Photoshop Elements version counterparts. I can wear a Photoshop Elements hat if need be, but do not work in these programs as intensively as I do in Premiere Elements. I am strictly a Elements Windows user.
Just in case thought....when you import media into a project, all you get are copies of that media which remain housed at a computer hard drive location. But, the project copies need to trace back to the originals at their hard drive save location. If you move, delete, or rename files/folders that went into the project after you saved closed the project, you get in serious project-source media disconnect issues. In this situation, when you open your saved closed project, you will be greeted by "Where is the file____?" message which need to be answered by you for each missing file before the project opens. More on that another time if needed.
Best wishes moving forward in your projects.
When you are viewing a video tutorial, be aware of the computer operating system (Mac or Windows) and version of Premiere Elements being used in the tutorial.

Hiya, thanks for replying. I brought Photoshop and premiere elements 13 mainly to learn how to put my videos onto disc. Try to learn transitions and menu's. The price for buying the two was only a few dollars so worth it. We have a lot of photos so that's why I've tried to use photoshop, but my main area will be premier. Cannot find many books on premier. I brought Scott Kelly photoshop 13 . When you import both photos and videos they both show in the organiser unless I made a mistake importing. Do they both show in the timeline as mine did. If you do a slide show of all your stuff does it include photos and videos?

With Photoshop Elements 13 and Premiere Elements 13, there is more than one way to create a slideshow (in which you will include videos and photos).
1. The slideshow feature in Elements Organizer 13/13.1 does not integrate with Premiere Elements 13/13.1 Editor as in the days of the prior and earlier versions. Now you build a 720p or 1080p AVCHD.mp4 themed slideshow in the Elements Organizer and can save it to the computer hard drive from where you can import it into a Premiere Elements 13 project for burn to disc or other.
2. You can create, edit, export a Timeline content as a slideshow with just the Premiere Elements Editor involved.
3. I would go through all the free resources before deciding on book(s) which can be expensive and whose content may be quickly out of date with the yearly release of a new version. And, if you are going to buy book(s), try to buy books specific for the version of the Adobe product that you have. Have you looked at
Premiere Elements 13 Help PDF
Elements Organizer 13 Help PDF
You can import videos and photos into the Elements Organizer 13/13.1. A video thumbnail can be double clicked for its playback in the Elements Organizer player. Sometimes there can be problems - video and no audio, audio and no video, no image in the thumbnail. You can import supported formats into the Premiere Elements Editor. When you do, a copy is automatically placed in the Elements Organizer.
Slideshow in the Premiere Elements Editor can contain video, photos, music, and much more and be taken to file saved to the computer hard drive, burn to disc, uploaded to YouTube as examples. It is only the disc products that can have menus.
Lots and lots of details and opportunities to explore. I would start with the Help PDF to get a framework for the program and what it can do for you.
We will be watching for your progress as your schedule permits.
