Since posting my first message I have browsed through some of the other topics and I am quite alarmed to see that quite a few others have had problems accessing their photographs after transferring them from My Docs/My Pictures. Hopefully, some of you Adobe experts out there will be able to reassure me - I won't be using Photo Album until you do!

Typically any problems are "pilot error".
PSA SE is just cataloging the image files you have and it doesn't care where you keep them.. What do you mean by:
> Will I be able run My Photos side by side with Adobe program?
Is My Photos a program? I thought it was just the name of a folder.
> If I import them all into Adobe Photo Album are they then stored all over again as separate copies on the hard drive of my PC?
No. As I said, it just catalogs what you have.
If Adobe Photoshopp Album starter ed. 3 is just a catalogue of my photos am i to presume that i am unable to create a collage of 6 photos of my grandchildren that i wanted to include in my xmas cards? thx. s.
> If Adobe Photoshopp Album starter ed. 3 is just a catalogue of my photos
It is "just" a catalog meaning that it only references images that you have - it does not have its own private copy of them.
> am i to presume that i am unable to create a collage of 6 photos of my grandchildren
That depends upon exactly what you mean by "collage". If you just want 6 prints on a page, then it can do that with problem.
Good Morning, Earlybird !
How do I get 6 photos on a page and can I edit, ie move them around?
Don't think i saw a copy and paste feature? thx. S.

Actually, it's nearly lunchtime here - I'm in the UK. :-)
> How do I get 6 photos on a page and can I edit, ie move them around?
There is not a way to do that in PSA SE - that's why I was questioning what you wanted in terms of a collage. The paid-for version of PSA [PSA 2] has some capabilities in that area. For full flexibility, Photoshop Elements is a good tool. There may, however, be other, simpler tools available that are more optimal for this specific purpose, but I am unable to recommend one.
Thanks Colin. Guess I need to continue educating myslf... Thanks, anyway. Signing off at 7:08 New York time. S.
