NEED HELP ASAP! After I edit my photos and save them for the web, all the pics now shoe up as the Blue PSE icon instead of the actual pic. So when I search a folder for one of the pics, all I see are those blue icons. The file names I assigned to all the pics are there but I am unable to see the actual pic. The pic will open up if I click on it but I don't want to have to click on each PSE icon to see the pic. How do I fix this problem so I can see all of the actual pics when I open the folder to view them?
What operating system and version of photoshop elements are you using?
What file format are you saving as?
Can you give a sample of a file name you want to apply?
For instance you can't have two '.' in the name like in 'photo.series.jpg'
When I locate a .jpg file, the files appear as the image I saved, So when I need to look for a certain pic, I can easily find it. But, for the last few weeks, the .jpg files have been showing up as a thumbnail of the PSE icon as pictured below. This makes it very difficult when I'm looking in a folder full of .jpgs and all I see are the blue PSE icons. When I click on any given PSE icon within one of my photo folders, it opens up just fine displaying the actual photo. When I save a .jpg, how do I get the actual thumbnail of the actual pic to show up vs the PSE blue icon? Is it some kind of glitch with the software or is it something I did?
I have WINDOWS 10, am using PSE 14, and my pics are saved as jpgs or gifs.
I'm having the same problem & cannot find how to fix it 😞
