How can I copy a photo from Photoshop Elements 5.0 to my computer hard drive? I want to do this before backing up and converting photos to newly installed PSE 12.

Photo files are saved in your Operating System files and are separate from PSE5 and should open in PSE12 with the same dialog box of files to open.  Like others, I assume that you have photo files in one folder or a few folders, as organized. 

IF you are talking about opening photos from the Organizer in Elements 5, I don't use the Organizer in any PSE so I can't be quoted, it makes sense to me that photos are in folders from the OS also. 

I should note here that PSE5 and PSE12 are not supported by Adobe anymore but I can answer questions and help as I can in this forum.
