Hi all,

 

Easy question. Does Element 2022 still uses the same database format/structure as the 2020 version (i.e. with several thousands of json files). With every new releases, I hoping that adobe will eventually come up with a nore intelligent way of managing this.

 

Thanks

I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Photoshop Elements forum so that proper help can be offered.

More precisely, you are asking about changes in [catalog folder structure] which could involve slight changes in the structure of the sqlite databases included in that folder.

What's easy would be to download the trial version of PSE2022 (provided it uses a required OS version). No change with json files.

I don't use face recognition myself, so I am not bothered with json files.

I suspect you are hinting at storing the face recognition data in sqlitedatabase (similar to storing the thumbnails). That would make a number of backups much faster if possible.

I have no inside info about the reasons of the present solution, but I think that the json text files may be necessary for compatibility with other programs. So, I have no easy answer to your question.
