Welcome to the forum.
Just to make sure that I am following along, you have tagged your images/AV files in Organizer (PSE 7, or PrE 7?) and have migrated your Organizer and the files from one computer to another. Is this correct? How did you migrate the Organizer?
I have PrE 7 and have done a lot of tagging of my video clips that I would like to be able to use on my laptop. I installed a new copy of PrE 7 on my laptop and migrated the projects and clips to the laptop, but I do not have any tags associated with my clips when I import them into a project. Is there a catalog file I am missing in the new install on th laptop that I can just port over?
The catalog file is located in DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS/ALL USERS/APPLICATION DATA/ADOBE/ELEMENTS ORGANIZER/CATALOGS
(Those last couple folders may vary a bit, depending on your operating system and which version of the program you're using -- but you should be able to find your way from there.)
I don't know if it will work to simply copy the file over to your new computer, but I suppose it's worth a try!
Can someone verify that this is the correct method?
Ok - No Solution yet.........the directory you were referring to exists in Windows 7 (on my notebook) but not on Window XP so I still don't know where the tags are stored? Please tell me where these tags are so that I can migrate them to my Laptop! Thank you.
Well, I'd lean towards anything that Steve Grisetti said. He wrote the books on PrE 2, 3 4, 7 and 8, plus the books of PSE 7 & 8. Along the way, he'd done several "Learning Series," on each version of PrE. He's my "go-to" source.
Ok - So I copied
DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS/ALL USERS/APPLICATION DATA/ADOBE/PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS/Catalogs
DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS/ALL USERS/APPLICATION DATA/ADOBE/ELEMENTS ORGANIZER/Catalogs
and rebooted -
but the my tags still do not show up when I add the clips to the organizer in my new installation.
I'd recommend that you post this question to the Community forum on http://Muvipix.com.
There's a moderator there named Barb O who knows about everything there is to know about the Organizer. If anyone knows the answer, she dos.
