I need to wipe out all folders and start over.  I want to break all the links and have folders dissapear in Organizer so I can reimport the way I want it.  When I opened Organizer for the first time it just started importing all on its own.  Plus it missing pictures in some of the folders.  I just want to start over.

 

Is there a way?

Hi Marcia,

 

On the Organizer Menu bar,

  1. Click FILE > MANAGE CATALOGS.
  2. Create a new catalog and open it.
  3. Import your photos into it the way you want.
  4. After you've imported some photos into the new catalog, you can delete the old catalog.

Thank You so Much.   Can you answer this question.  After I got the new Folders set up I started opening pictures.  
All of my perfectly focused pictures look as if I didn't focus any of them.  Only in Photoshop Elements 2022.  Well I havn't tried in any other version.  This is my first.   Why are all the pictures out of focus and how do I fix it.

When you import new files into a catalog, it takes a while for the thumbnails to be created (automatically) for each image.  You can bring your image thumbnails into focus by updating them manually.  Select an image or group of images and press Shift+Ctrl+U.

The thumbnails are saved in two sizes in the thumbnail cache: 240 and 360 pixels max. That means that when you display in full size or bigger than 360 pixels, the full image has to be read and resized. That can take time, especially for raw files which need a new conversion including the edits or with big layered files. Of course, the display speed depends on your hardware specs.
