I have been using Photoshop Elements 14 for over a year now. I have noticed, along with the pictures I have been saving/editing in this program, there are files created on my hard drive with the extension of .json. I have well over 2,000 records with this extension now which is adding up as memory/storage:

1.What are these files?

2. Is it necessary to keep them?

Deleting jasons will delete all existing people stacks from EO. This operation can't be undone.

Thanks,
