All I need to do is drag and drop photos within the organiser in Elements 19, so frustrating! I have tried the solution on Google using Enable LUA within my computer settings but it still puts a blue square around the photo as if I want to enlarge it. I've seen other solutions but none seem to work

I have been trying for some time to understand your issue. 'Drag and drop' is not your final goal, it's an interface way to tell a software to do a given action to a given object, so I have to make a guess.

Maybe what you want is to put a custom sort order in your photos by selecting one or several thumbnails in the browsing space, and to drag them elsewhere to display them in your preferred sort order?

If so, keep in mind that a 'custom' sort order in any editing software is totally ignored by your operating system (Win or Mac), thus totally ignored by other editors. Operating systems and editors can sort and show the images in common sort orders like dates or file names.

In the organizer, you can set a 'custom' sort order by dragging thumbnails only when you are in an album and when you have set the sort order to 'album order' on the top menu line. I imagine the blue you are seeing is only the way the organizer shows selected items. Also remember that an album is a kind of 'playlist', a sorted list of items just like audio playlists. That's why albums allow you to sort at will.

If my guess is wrong, please give more info. What you have found on Google or the 'other solutions' you mention can't help your fellow users to help you, unfortunately.

Thanks for your reply I've seen a loot of posts in google who appear to have a similar problem so did'nt embelish enough what I was after. I want to move photos from one folder to another. When I download from a card or camera I put them in years/months then seperate days. After editing I sometimes put them into a new folder to keep edited photos seperate from unedited ones. If I did not do a save to new folder after editing it is easy to just drag and drop from one folder to another. I have done this in my previous versions of photoshop, but am using a new install of elements 19 on a new computer so I'm unsure if its a PS problem or a computer setting
