Today I have purchased Photoshop Elements 2018 on Amazon, and after installation I experienced the following Problems:
After a click on the Photoshop Elements Symbol (on search panel, desktop, whatever) the start screen comes up to let me select if I want the editor or the Organizer.
My PC setup is as follows:
1 year old T470p Lenovo Laptop
What I have tried so far:
Nothing worked so far and I am really frustrated, because I have spent so much money on the Program. I am just a student and have spared the money for this for months…
I hope someone can help me with this
I'll follow the discussion you are mentioning in the feedback forum.
It has been suggested that the recent update of Windows 10 (build 1803) may have created some problems related to the amount of RAM available to Elements.
The symptoms vary, but the workaround seems to work for all of them.
Since there are already a lot of positive feedback about the success of that workaround, I would advise to test editing the registry. I have not seen any mention of a catastrophe from incorrect editing, but a backup of the registry is highly recommended.
I don't think the workaround can hurt. Some say that it makes Elements more responsive.
I have tried it on two computers with 6GB and 8GB RAM which did not show the issues from the Windows update. People with a rather powerful config like yours are more at risk to have the various issues mentioned above, and the workaround should help them more.
Thank you very much for the Link!
The Performance of the Editor is better now!
The other (bigger) Problem with the Organizer sadly didn't change.
I cannot use the Organizer at all, if the Window is closing all the time...
After the last update, the Problem still persists...
Does anyone have a solution for my problem? I cannot use Photoshop Elements Organizer at all...
Same problem here. I just bought Elements 2018 at WalMart, installed it, started Organizer to identify people in my 26,000 photos. I left for about an hour as it was taking a while and when I came back Elements was closed. I tried starting it a couple of times but it closed after 3 seconds or so of starting up. I restarted computer and tried it a couple more times with the same result - I start Organizer and it closes about 3 seconds after starting.
I have Windows 10 Professional (X64) Version 1803 (build 17134.165).
3.2G Intel Core i5-3470
2 TB hard drive with 1.5 TB free.
I have no viruses or malware on my system.
I just need Elements to work and I don't want to be a Guinea Pig. If it doesn't work, I'd like my money back. Is that too much to ask?
Six months later, and I'm having the same problem. Organizer loads for about 15 seconds, then crashes. I haven't had this problem previously, and there have been no major changes to the computer or the Organizer catalog. Running Windows 10 64-bit, Intel Core i7-6700K CPU at 4.01 GHz, 16 GB RAM.
We're having this same problem too. Out of the blue catalog just crashes and won't open. Didn't realize until now that Adobe has awful support options. How do we get support?? If the product isn't going to work then how do I get my money back?? Does Adobe even bother to respond to these?????
