This is fair advice, but do be aware that this picture is of very low resolution and is unsuitable for printing.
BTW, Kenneth, I don't understand the first bit of your posting. Are you suggesting that Adobe's software deletes [hides] your image files and that buying some other software from them will fix it? If so, you are very off beam.
I believe the Starter Edition makes your pictures unrecognizable and you need to purchase an upgrade to avoid this problem

Having spent a lot of time on this forum and used this software a lot, I believe that you are incorrect.
Some people experience "disappearing pictures". Often this is simply because they assume that the images are "in" PSA SE and delete the files. PSA SE just catalogs what is on the hard drive. I sympathize with those who suffer such a loss, but can only advocate backups.
Other people seem to lose image files and there is no clear idea where they have gone. I would like to figure this out.
I have nvere encountered anyone whose images have been rendered "unrecognizable" by PSA SE. Can you explain this at all?
Never encountered people with unrecognized pictures?????????? Have you read the Forum? You'll find plenty aggravated users with this problem
> Have you read the Forum?
Every day since its inception [vacations aside]. Take a look and you'll find my name frequently.
I have never encountered someone with unrecognized pictures. Missing, yes. But, unrecognized, no.
I apologize. Reconnect is the word I meant to use as opposed to unrecognized
OK. I was not criticizing your "solution" - it does do the job. I just wanted to be sure that users understood the limitations. I do rather take exception to the suggestion that Adobe have done something underhand.
I had faith in Adobe until I got tech support on the phone in reference to this problem. In short,"blown off" because I was using the starter edition is a good description for the help I received. There was a lot of talk about upgrading though.
Keep in mind that this version is also quite old. In the software industry
it is difficult to find any companies like Adobe or Microsoft as examples
supporting free versions, much less when they get beyond a couple of years.
The current version of Elements is now at 5.0.
Not that that is of any comfort... just kind of the way the industry is at
