When I moved from Elements 11 to Elements 12 the program placed all of the keywords associated with my landscape photos under the Places Tags. The ones under Keywords work fine and allow me to add tags to new photos. The ones under Place Tags will not allow me to attach the key words to new photos. Can I move the place tags up to Keywords or can you fix it so you can attach the keywords in Place Tags to new photos?

Eugene,

Elements 12 shows the place tags created in previous versions under Place tag area in right panel after conversion. Elements 11 lacked the capability of showing place tags in hierarchy which has been added in Elements 12. Could you confirm that these tags never existed under Places hierarchy in previous versions of Elements as well?

Regards,

I have no pictures from a device that stores coordinates. I did have keywords for these photos listed by State. Elements moved these to the places area which was OK and I would have been happy with except that as I add other photos from these states I cannot attach keywords place keywords to them. I resolved the issue by recreating the labels in the keyword section and attaching the photos to them. This will work until the next version of Elements comes out and it moves everything to the place section again. Since the keywords serve me well on location.

I have little use for the place section until I get a camera with GPS in it. I have a Cannon EOS 40D so I am not likely to replace it soon.
