Could anyone please help me with this torn file image I get in the organizer display window after I have edited an image and saved it. The processed image appears in my image library which is on a separate hard disk but I get a torn file image in the organizer. I presume the catalog link has nor been established but can't see how to correct or prevent this from happening every time I save an edited image. Thanks all.

A torn image in a thumbnail indicates a corrupt file rather than a disconnected one (question mark icon).

Can you open the file from the organizer?

Or directly from the editor?

Which file format? jpeg, psd, tiff?

"I can open it from the editor but I only get a torn file image in organizer. The file is format is psd"

 

Let's check a possible file size issue:

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elements/kb/maximum-image-size-limits-photoshop.html

 

Does the 'update thumbnail' contextual option (right click) help?

It looks like a thumbnail generation issue.

If you delete from catalog and re-import (from files and folders), do you get the same torn icon?

Alternatively, create a new empty catalog and try to import from your drive.

Is this psd file made from a template, does it contain 'layer comps'?

Thank you for your help. I think I nailed it.

I was leaving the edited image open in Editor and so going over to Organizer I was getting the corrupted file icon and a short brief one-time message saying ----image under editing--- 

When I tried closing the image first in Editor then reviewing it in Organizer that fixed the problem. Very stupid of me but you live and learn.

Thank you for your help.
