Hallo,
ich bin von PSE 9.0 auf 19 umgestiegen, weil es dort Probleme mit jpegs gab. Dort wurden die Verzeichnisse überwacht und neue Dateien übernommen. Das klappt bei PSE 2021 nicht.
Kann mir jemand helfen oder hat jemand eine Idee?

Gruß
Christoph

Hi Christoph 🙂

 

It sounds like you need to set up your watch folders.

 

Here's the relevant section from the Elements Organizer User Guide:

 

Lokale Dateien, CDs, DVDs und Videos

 

Hope that helps 🙂

Ich habe das natürlich getan, wie in der Hilfe beschrieben.

Auf dem gleichen Rechner hatte ich Version 9.0. Damit funktioniert es. Ich habe auch alle Lösungsvorschläge durchgearbeitet, die für vorhergehende Versionen im Netz zu finden sind.

Die Ordner werden nicht überwacht.

Gruß

Christoph

The way watched folders work in Photoshop Elements changed in Photoshop Elements 15.

 

Since Photoshop Elements 15, watched folders are only checked when the Elements Organizer is launched. If any images are added to one of your watch folders while you have the Organizer open, you will not be prompted to import them until the Organizer is next launched. Similarly, if you decline to import any new images in your watched folders at launch time, you will not be asked again.

 

Does that explain why it might appear that watched folders are not working on your computer?

Let's just walk through all the steps to set up a watch folder and test whether it's working:

 

- Start Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021

- Choose the Organizer from the Photoshop Elements Home screen

- File > Watch Folders

- In the Watch Folders dialog window make sure the checkbox is selected next to Watch Folders and their Sub-Folders for New Files

- In the Folders to Watch section, click the Add button

- Navigate to your Documents folder and create a new folder called PSE Watch and click OK

- Check the new PSE Watch folder is now listed under the Folders to Watch

- Choose the Notify Me option under When New Files are Found in Watched Folders

- Click OK and exit the Organizer

- Using the File Explorer, navigate to your new PSE Watch folder

- Copy any image you like to the PSE Watch folder

- From the Photoshop Elements Home screen, start the Organizer again

- You should receive a notification on the screen that New files have been found in your Watched Folders

- Click Cancel

- File > Watched Folders

- This time change the When New Files are Found in Watched Folders option to Automatically Add Files to Elements Organizer

- Click OK and exit the Organizer

- Go back to your PSE Watch folder and copy a different image to that folder

- From the Photoshop Elements Home screen, start the Organizer again

- This time the image should be automatically imported into the Organizer

 

If you go through these instructions step-by-step and something does not appear to be working correctly, please let me know at which point things go wrong 🙂
