    All asset management takes place by going to My Library to open the Express Organizer. Management tasks include deleting, uploading, tagging, performing edits, and putting images into Albums

  • To delete a photo from one of your Photoshop.com albums, do the following:

    1. Choose Me > My Library on the Photoshop.com home page. Sign in, if prompted.

    2. Select the image that you want to delete and press Delete at the bottom of the window. (You can press Shift-click to select multiple photos for deletion.)

    There does not seem to be a way to remove a batch (or all) of the files in the library that are not associated with an album. As with the albums there is no "x" to eliminate them. One can do the elimination one-at-a-time. I have about 9000 and don't wish to click 9000 times!

  • Hey Guys at Photoshop.com,
    I have spent over an hour scrolling through various replies, but as yet Photoshop.com does not appear to give the specific info of how to remove multiple photos (1000s in someone's case) erroneously from photoshops Catalog. It would be great if someone could just say "There is no simple solution and to call Adobe directly" if that is the case.

    Thanks,

  • You said 'how to remove multiple photos...erroneously'. Assuming you didn't mean to say erroneously, if you intend to remove the photos, you can select them, then click the trash can icon to delete.

    To select multiple photos, you have two options: hold the control key and click on each of the photos you want to delete, or, if the photos are adjacent to each other, it's easier to click the first photo in the range, hold the shift key down, then scroll to the bottom and click the last photo in the range, which will select all photos between the first and last selected photo.

    Then click the trash can icon and they're gone.

  • Hello Mark,

    When I said "erroneously", I inferred that it may be a setting in the P.Elements Catalog window that is set to default, therefore allowing all photo albums to automatically get sent to photoshop.com, after setting up username/password. This is what happend to me without me knowing!

    I have not really used Photoshop.com until last week. I was shocked to see 5-6 years worth of my albums loaded up! I hope only viewable by me (is that the default). Anyway, my questions Mark are:

    1) Can I remove all Albums, or just each series of photoss as you suggest from Photoshop.com?

    2) I'd really like to start from scratch again, and to know the mechanism of "allowing" albums to show up in Photoshop.com. So, where/what do I check in the P.E. Catalog that is allowing all my albums automatically to copy to Photoshop.com?

    Thanks,

    Nick Guise

    Ah, makes sense.

    Those pictures that you see are only able to be viewed by you when you log into Photoshop.com UNLESS they are also in albums that have been shared with others. Albums that have been shared have either blue (public) or green (semi public) album icons in the left hand pane; if the album icons are gray, then they are private.

    You can delete just an album if you right click the album icon on the left, and select Remove from Library. You will see an option to also remove the photos that were in that album from the library as well, which permanently deletes them from the account.

    If you have photos that are not in albums, you would need to Shift-select all of them and delete them, since the album removal method described above wouldn't get those stragglers.

    In Elements, you have a preference that will auto set new albums to sync to Photoshop.com (or not); go there and set that accordingly.

    Also, when you create an album, you see a couple of panes that include the list of photos and the album name, and there is an option to also share on ps.com; if you uncheck that album, then it will also NOT go up there.

  • Thanks Mark,
    Re-viewing albums makes me less nervous, but I still don't need most of the 9+ pages of albums on there.

    When I right click on any album icon within my Gallery of Photoshop.com, there is no "Remove from Library" button. Drop down starts with "Back", "forward", "search using copied test", etc

    I have PW 10.0 and I purchased an extea 40GB memory. Thst makes difference in not being able to Delete Account; doe sit also impact inability to remove Albums as you described above?

  • Mark,
    Can you please me more specific how to set my preferences so Albums do NOT get copied over. I went to Edit/Preferences/back up Syncronization but did not see any tab to stop this process.

    When you "sync" photos/albums in Elements, is it backing everything up automatically to Photoshop.com?

    The right mouse button menu is not the only way to delete an album. Just click on an album in that left hand pane, and to its right you'll see an X icon which you can click on to delete the album (works exactly the same way as the menu would have worked).

    The right context menu option sounds like it's being interfered with by something unique to your system (those commands you listed are not the ones we have coming from the app, but could easily be produced by some Flash Player plugin that I've never seen, or troubleshooting plugin, or who knows; no big deal).

    In Elements 10, go to Edit>Preferences>Backup/Synchronization preferences, and when you are signed in, you would see a button to enable or disable backup/sync for the entire library.

    If you enable it there, you can selectively enable it on an album by album basis using the album listing that you see right in the preferences panel. At the bottom right of the preference screen there is a button that says "Backup/Sync entire catalog"; that will backup everything you have, whether it's in an album or not.

    Also, back toward the top of the preferences option for Backup/Sync, you would see a very little arrow with the text "Advanced Backup/Sync options"; click on that to reveal the options for how you want new albums to work (either auto sync or not).

  • I’m undecided
    Hello Mark,
    Almost there :)

    A) Within the left pane of Edit/Preferences/back-up, I deselected all albums from "sync". Does this automatically delete them from My Gallery, or just stop future syncing? (important question)?

    If it just stops the sync, then I still need a way to remove all current albums from My Gallery, so I can start afresh. (I was going to cancel/delete My Gallery, but cannot do this since i have 8 months left on my 40GB memory I paid for).

    B) After "A", I then disabled Back-up/sync under Edit/Preferences, etc, and also went to Advanced box and turned off Auto Back-up/sync. Your comments sparked additional questions:

    1) Confirm the function of Back/up/Sync is not just for backing up my files for retrieval if I lose files, but ALSO to sync all albums in Elements to Photoshop.com (if auto back up turned on)?

    2) If both, then I how do I perform a back up, without the Sync?

    3) If I perform "Back-up Sync entire Catalog", will that not only back up Catalog, but ALSO sync all Catalog albums to Photoshop.com, regardless of my settings?

    In Organizer of PE 10.0, I have seen an icon within the Edit function of an album (right side panel) to toggle Back-up/sync on/off. But it still leaves the basic question: How do I back up my files WITHOUT syncing to Photosdhop.com?

    Thanks for your continued help Mark.

    The albums will still exist on ps.com when deselect them here. To make them go away on ps.com, go to the ps.com site and delete them there.

    1. Yes, backup/sync will grab albums and their contents; that 'entire catalog' option will also backup stuff even if it's not in an album. You can make albums private, so that only you can see them when you look at your account on ps.com.

    2. Technically, Elements just syncs; backups are done locally, burned to CD, DVD or to a local hard drive using the Catalog Backup command.

    3. Yes, I believe that is how it works.

    Photoshop Elements equivocates Backup and Sync, but doesn't offer the subtle difference in functionality with that command toggle. It's just sync.

    Sorry for the delay; I had mail problems and I hadn't been checking up on your thread.
