What all you loose if want to move out of Organizer?


Today I was reading a discussion about Adobe Photoshop Elements, where a user wanted to move to Mac from win. Since Organizer is not there on Mac as of now, s/he needs to use other organizing application.

On Adobe Forums, there is a user "JOHN R ELLIS" who has amazing knowledge about different imaging products. On this thread he has shared detailed information about migration from ORGANIZER to other applications like:

- PSE7 inside Virtual Machine

Check out this thread for more details:Ado

Adobe Photoshop Elements-Editor has stopped working


Recently I read something on Adobe forum and found it very useful. One user was facing a problem after applying 7.0.3 update and suddenly Editor stopped working for him. This was not actually related to update but followin steps solved his problem. I though of capturing these details here:

There are many reasons why the PSE Editor might not getting launched or crashes. Here are some steps you can take to try to fix the problem. Even if you think you’ve tried some of these  before, try them again, precisely as described here:

1.      Delete the Editor’s preferences:

Start PSE to get to the Welcome screen. Hold down the Ctrl, Alt, and Shift keys and click Edit.  Keep holding down the keys until you see a window asking “Delete the Adobe Photoshop Elements Settings File?” Click Yes. (Note that this does not delete the Organizer’s settings.)

2.      Change the default printer, as described in these tech notes:

3.      If you have a Microsoft pointing device, the Microsoft Intellipoint driver software may be conflicting with the Editor. Try uninstalling it and rebooting. (Your device may operate without the software.)

4.      If the Editor crashes after displaying “Building TWAIN menu items” on the splash screen, see this tech note:

5.      Try Adobe’s generic troubleshooting steps.  If you’ve installed third-party plug-ins, start with that step first. 

Saturday, May 8, 2010 Services are still not accessible after applying 7.0.3 update

Recently I found a dicussion on Adobe forums where some users were not able to use services after applying 7.0.3 update.

But you need not worry, in case same thing is happening with you. Just follow the steps mentioned below and you should be able to use services with improved performance:

1. Uninstall PSE 7.0
2. Install it again.
3. You will again see the message for update and continue with download and install.
4. Restart your machine

Automatically Synchronizing(Backing-up) your files to when machine is in Idle state


Automatically Synchronizing(Backing-up) your files to when machine is in Idle state

In 7th and 8th releases of Adobe Photoshop Elements, there is an online service through which files in your Organizer catalog can be synchronized to There is a SynAgent sitting in your system-tray on bottom-right of your screen, which does this work.

This Syncagent work with your Catalog and to identify the channges and sync them appropriately. It does this job regularly and immidiate triggering is possible in PSE8 through 'SYNC NOW' button in Sync Status dialog.

Many times I have seen people on forums discussing about some way to run this agent when system is in IDLE state. AND yes, there is a way. Please follow steps mentioned below to activate automatic synchronization when system in is IDLE state.

1. Right click on Syncagent in System-Tray (I assume that you are already using Backup/Sync and Syncagent in running on your machine)
2. There is an option "Sync when Idle"
3. Check this option.

Now onwards, you will see this agent in your system-tray and but it is not doing anything. It will start doing synchronization, as it detects no keyboard/mouse aciton on your machine.

Hope it will help activating synchronization during system idle state. Please write back in case you have some specific queries about the same.
