I just upgraded from Elements 8 to Elements 12 on my Windows Vista 64 bit machine. I converted my version 8 catalog to version 12 on initial startup of the new version and all appeared to be fine however I now have a problem when I attempt to move or delete any picture(s) within any of my local albums, both new and old. If I try to move/drag a picture to change the order of viewing I get error dialog:
Error Reordering Album Media
If I attempt to remove a picture from any local album I get error dialog:
Error Removing Item(s) from Album
Both activities worked previously on Elements 8. Any suggestions??

There has been a few problems with converted albums.
The workaround is generally to create a new empty album.
You select your album, set in 'custom' order.
You select all and copy and paste in the new album.
Does it work now on the album copy ?

MUCH better! PIX copied to new album and reordering/removing items works just fine now. THX to Michel.
