On first going to, "My Gallery" contained truncated versions of many of the albums I have in my Elements Organizer. For example, albums which in the Organizer have 50 or 100 photos have only 12 or 15 in the "My Gallery" section of I have no idea where and how these truncated albums found their way to in the first place -- I never uploaded any of them to -- and there is really no clear description anywhere as to how Elements Organizer and relate and interface with one another. Does Photoshop automatically access albums? If one deletes an album from the "My Gallery" will that delete the album from my Elements Organizer albums as well? Please help me at

Photoshop Elements and can synchronize with each other. Changes made to one will update on the the other. But only after you have setup Photoshop Elements to create this connection.

To turn the options on/off, go to Edit>Preferences>Backup/Synchronization. Then check/uncheck "Backup/Sync is on".

These truncated Albums online suggest that synchronization started but was stopped/interrupted.
