Can you describe how you did the downloading and describe the steps you took <br />to carrying out the changes? It sounds like the original has not actually <br />been saved to your hard drive.<br /><br />FWIW, the "original" has not been altered. What you are seeing is the <br />"edited" version of the original. The original is sitting catalogued on the <br />HDD in the same spot that it was originally.<br /><br />Cheers<br /><Polly_Hodgins@adobeforums.com> wrote in message <br />news:email@example.comNXanI...<br />>I am a new user of Adobe PSE.<br />><br />> I downloaded a lot of pictures and used Auto Smart Fix on several.

> is it possible to auto smart fix more than 1 pic at a time
Yes. Just select the images [usual Windows convention - click first, CTRL/click the rest] and do ASF.
When finished with auto smart fix, an internal edit box pops up saying: "the photo cannot be saved". Then "Photoshop Album could not automatically fix file" Any advice?
I posted a similar question about this for PSE 8 and got the following (discouraging) answer.
"If you mean the auto smart fix, no. But you can run auto levels, auto color, auto sharpen, and/or auto contrast via File>Process Multiple Files in the Editor."
If you have found new information on this subject, I would like very much to read about it.
You can apply Auto Smart Fix to multiple photos from the Organizer; control-click the photos to multi select, and choose the Edit > Auto Smart Fix (control Alt M) menu command; the program will rip through them, one at a time, until they are all done.
That's not a very informative message, is it!
Does it fail for ALL of your photos, or just this one?
Is the file disconnected?
IT WORKED !!!
Through PSE2 and PSE4 I had never used Organizer, so you can imagine how clumsy I was in PSE8, getting files from Pictures into the organizer, then getting them all selected (bless ctrl-A), applying the auto fix, and then exporting them back to Pictures, but I did it. Once again, I will be my daughter's hero!
Thank you so much!
thats great news!
