What is Photoshop Elements Autocreations 2022? How can I disable it? Plus, three related questions.

Hi,

 

I've installed a freestanding version of PSE 2022 on a Windows 10 desktop.  I use PSE 2022 in Expert mode, create/edit indiviual images, and save them to a portable hard drive -- not anywhere in PSE itself. 

 

What is PSE Auto Creations? What does it do, and how I can disable it if it isn't absolutely necessary for running PSE 2022?

 

Also, three related questions:

 

1. I don't want any aspects of PSE running automatically at startup.  Under Task Manager's Startup tab, I see Adobe Updater Startup Utility, which has low startup impact. Can I disable AUSU, and will doing so prevent me from running or updating PSe at the time of my choosing?

 

2. Under Task Manager's Processes tab, I see Adobe Update Service (32 bit), which has very low power usage.  Does this process run automatically at startup?  Again, I want to minimize unnecessary processes and have agency over when and how I use them.

 

3. What is "AdobeIPCBroker.log" and how do I prevent it from appearing?

 

I know that this post asks questions on four separate but related issues.  If this is a problem, please direct me to the proper Adobe forum.  I don't log on here often and need to condense all related questions into as few posts as possible.

 

Thank you in advance.

The "Media Analysis" setting is found in the Organizer Preferences. Your screenshot shows the Editor Preferences.

You can disable any service or application you want from running at startup without issue. When you launch the Adobe program it will load whatever services and helper applications it might need.

You can stop any of that stuff from sarting automatically if want, but why bother?  It's simply "making work" for yourself and you seem to be concern with minute details.  It's Best, for the average user,  to not even bother worrying about the things you mentioned, with the exception being autocreations. 



You can update it, if an update is available, anytime you choose.  Again, choosingto do so- disabling the update broker, is simply makingwork for yourself.

Autocreations is a background service that looks at your images, and automatically creates things like images and slidshows with effects added automatically-- you can disable in your ORGANIZER preference file-- I think most people do disable it. 

I can understand your ddesire  to limit processes on an older computer.

Uncheck what the arrow is pointing to (From your organizer preference file.

I do not have "Media Analysys" pane within my PSE 2022 Preferences.  Please see the attached screenshot.
