What are you attempting to do in the Quick mode when this happens?
What are the files e.g. jpeg or other type?
Are they on your internal drive e.g. in the Pictures folder or an external drive, camera storage card or NAS?
Are you starting a slideshow by selecting thumbnails in Organizer?
What are the image sizes?
If you can provide the above information we may be able to help pin down the problems.
I am attempting to create a slideshow
The files are .jpeg
Most were transferred from my phone onto my pc
I haven't used the organizer yet
Most sizes are 85.5 KB (87,651 bytes)
I would suggest trying the organizer. Simply import the photos from a folder. You can also create an album and drag thumbnails for the slideshow into the album. If you set the sort order to “Added Order” you can drag the thumbnails into your preferred sequence and they will remain in fixed positions. For an impromptu slideshow click
View >> Full Screen
Then click the play button
Or simply click the slideshow button at the bottom of Organizer to create an MP4 presentation which can be saved and uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook etc
Could you please tell me the OS on which you've installed Photoshop Elements? (If you're using Windows, please mention the complete OS version)
I am going to try your solution. I have to work on it as time allows. We are still in the process of settling mama's estate. It's hard but necessary. Thanks for the help.
I understand. I had to do it for my own mother. It can be difficult having to deal with all the different parties. Some organizations wanted to deal by post while others had good on-line services. Luckily my siblings are all amicable and things went well. Do let us know if you need any further help with the slideshow.
