Elements 11 Organizer File vs Windows explorer

  • Updated 3 years ago
I uploaded some photos from a camera through Elements 11 Organizer to my laptop (Windows 8.1). I then renamed the file within Organizer. But I cannot find the folder in Windows explorer. Would the file be somewhere within an Adobe folder?

I can see all the pix when I have elements organizer open.

Appreciate any help. Thanks.

The organizer does not store picture files, it only keeps links to the files location on your drive in its catalog(s).
A search with the Windows explorer should find your pictures.
Just look at the right panel (properties) of the explorer, the path of each file is shown in the top 'general' section.

Hi Alan,

You would be able to see file location by selecting this file in Organizer, opening Information panel in the right and checking General pane.
