My Thoughts on Organizer 2019
I have 38,000 pictures some old (pre-1980 no metadata)
Currently using Elements 2018
- love the grid view
- don't ever delete sort by name
- not worth upgrading to elements 2019

Things that really irritate me
1. no easy way to find/delete missing links in catalog

2. really hard to spot a video in the grid (make more apparent)
  - small video icon looks like a wall plug in the pictures

  b) no way to re-size/maximize video to full screen 

  c) double click on a video, you still have to press play?  Play the thing!

  d) video stops playing if click on any thing else on screen - Keep playing it (I can press pause if i want to stop)
    - stops even when I try to advance the video?

3. cumbersome to see file type in a reasonable length filename (info screen)

Things that would be helpful

1. better name association to people profile
  - sometimes remember last name only or part of name
  - name label "Fred Alexander Smith" 
        -  should be found by "Fred Smith" or "Alexander Smith"

2. Named people
 - do something with profile pictures (collages?)
3. better profile pictures
  - add Zoom function (as in media mode) 
  - currently too small and not all well positioned

4. Media pictures
  - should be able to zoom on an individual picture
  - can only zoom on grid

5. better facial recognition software
  - not very accurate in matching faces to existing names
  - doesn't come close to Picasa
