Elements organizer 2023 has Thumbnail issues (at least) with HEIC files

I was running elements2022 and just upgraded to 2023.  Organizer in 2022 was working fine with HEIC images. I updated the catalog when installing 2023.

 

Organizer 2022: thumbnails were correct and there were no issues with HEIC images.

Organizer 2023: thumbnails sometimes show up correctly but change even with no user actions occurring.  Sometimes they change to black (no thumbnail?)  sometimes the thumbnail for one HEIC image will be propogated to multiple other HEIC images.  Different things seem to happen randomly each time.  If you scroll down to other images in organizer, then back up to the HEIC files it happens all over again (with different results each time).

 

Additionally when one clicks on a thumbnail of a HEIC file the image will sometimes be corrupt.

 

Importing HEIC files into 2023 has the same issue - thumbnails of images to be imported are incorrect.  There were no issues in organizer 2022.

Organizer has also crashed on several ocassions while investigating the above.

Have you updated the problem thumbnails? (Shift+Ctrl+U in Windows)  This should fix the issue.

The windows thumbnails are fine.

The Organizer 2022 thumbnails are fine.

The Oraganizer 2023 thumbnails are not fine - and they keep changing.

here's a video that might make it easier to understand what's happening.  Every time the Organizer goes to display the thumbnails on this set of files something different happens...

Thanks for the video but I understood your description since I have seen it myself.  Perhaps you did not understand my response.  My reference to Windows was to the Organizer keyboard shortcut in that OS.  Try selecting the files with the problem thumbnails in Elements 2023 and press Shift+Ctrl+U.  (You can also use the Update Thumbnail command from the Edit menu.)

Yes, I didn't understand what you meant.  Tx for clarifying.   I did update the thumbnails and that did put the correct thumbnails up - but it didn't fix the issue because, after less than a minute they got randomly corrupt just like before 😞

What happens if you double-click on a file and view it in full screen view?

usually you see the image correctly - other times the image is corrupted.  Seems inconsistent and random.

I took a picture to demonstrate the image corruption - it's attached

One less than optimal workaround is to save iPhone images as jpegs.

Yes, and like the author, it fixes it on the current screen but then scroll up and down and the problem is back - sometimes not the same images.
The only fix that seems to work is converting to jpeg (rotate left and right converts it).

HEIC is not a new format anymore and it is supposed to be supported.

I bought 2023 version thinking this would all be fixed. After >12 yrs of Adobe Elements I think it's time to look for another product with less bugs.

I agree.  If there was some mechanism for submitting bug reports and if bugs were ever fixed it might be different.  I have been using elements since version 1...
