I have Photoshop Elements 2018 operating on a PC with Windows 10. I use it to organize my photos and to place them in various albums.  I always add a caption and notes to each picture when I load them into elements and then associate them with various albums that I have.  Recently it started giving me an error message when trying to add a note or caption.  Also when I add new photos they do not show up anywhere.  I am at a lost to what is going on.

We can't really help you without knowing more about the error message you are receiving and when it appears.  A screenshot would be most helpful.

 

What is your workflow for adding new photos?  Do you get any error messages when you import them?  Do you possibly have some filter applied?  Are the imported photos raw files from a newer camera?

Hey Dad, I was able to fix it by editing your elements datalog DB file. I removed all the rows in table db_change_timestamp_table and then elements '18 was able to rebuild the index successfully and then I was able to edit captions and notes without any errors. Also by removing those rows, elements'22 was able to successfully convert your '18 catalog over without errors. I think some of the rows were corrupted in that table and needed to be cleared out.
