PDFs are Adobe media files?  why can't they be imported and tagged in the Organizer Catalog?  Make it a feature now please.

The organizer has supported pdf files until a few years. No explanation from Adobe for that decision.

Check if the pdfs made from Elements itself can be managed, as they are 'Photoshop Pdf' format including the Acrobat pdf common format together with a full Photoshop layered psd.

Maybe use Bridge for Acrobat psd files (Bridge desktop is free).

Bridge  is a confusing mess.

I don't know how to take a multi-page pdf and create a "Photoshop Pdf".  when i open a pdf in Elements Editor I get multiple files for each page or image.  Not a layered psd.  How am I supposed to create this combo Acrobat pdf and layered psd?

"Bridge  is a confusing mess."  ... for an organizer user and reciprocally.

 

"I don't know how to take a multi-page pdf" :  To create one, you must remember that pdf is NOT a photo file format, it's a printing format. So the natural way to create a multipage format is to use a virtual printer driver like the Microsoft "print to pdf". Instead of saving, print and you'll get an acrobat pdf (single or multi layers if you print several layers at the same time.

Another way would be to use the slideshow option as pdf.

 

"......and create a "Photoshop Pdf". That's the format option you choose when you save files as pdf in PSE. If you have a multilayered file, it will open both from Acrobat or Photoshop/PSE. Only drawback, the resulting file size is huge.

 

"when i open a pdf in Elements Editor I get multiple files for each page or image.  Not a layered psd. " 

Indeed true Acobat PDF printing format must be read and converted to a photo format, page by page in Elements.  Pages are not layers.

 

So, the problem of managing PDFs in the organizer remains, but you can create multipage pdfs from the editor and a virtual pdf printer driver (aside from Microsoft, many free or affordable ones available.

 

Of course, Acrobat is the choice of Adobe for more advanced pdf management.

Even if I open a psd file and save it as a "photoshop pdf", Organizer will not import it due to it having a .pdf file extension.  Not a supported media format.
