I am running Elements 2020 on a mid 2015 IMac, version 10.15.7 on Mac OS Catalina.
Initially the organiser and/or photo downloader consistently crashed either before or during uploading photos from a compact flash card.
Things then got progressively worse eg I could eventually download the photos to the computer but it then stopped deleting the photos from the CF card eg it crashed at that point meaning I have to manually delete the photos (dont want to format card as some past photos I want to retain on it).
Now I am having difficulty with the photo downloader even detecting the CF card eg it says "no device found".
Any pointers gratefully received as this Adobe software is driving me slowly demented...
Sorry about the trouble with Photoshop elements 2020. We're here to help.
Would you mind updating your operating system and the application to the latest version? Did you try re-installing the application? Since when are you seeing this crash issue?
Is there any background application that runs with Adobe Photoshop Elements? Please try saving the images in your internal drive rather than importing them to Elements directly from the external device? Let us know how it goes.
