I have been using pse 7 and picasa on a pc for sometime and really loved them! I just recently changed to pse 9, the latest picasa version and a mac. The problem I seem to be having is that I can't drag anything from picasa to pse. I was always able to do this before and am really hoping this feature has not been removed. Is there a setting I need to change or am I doing something incorrectly? Any help or information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Are you dragging from Elements Organizer, or Editor, or another way?

I am dragging straight from picasa to pse. I could click and drag as easy as that and it would be in my pse project bin.

Perform this quick test: drag a file from Windows Explorer into Photoshop Elements. When I say Windows Explorer, I mean from locations like My Computer or My Pictures (or if you are on Windows Vista/7 "Computer" and "Pictures"), or even simply from your Desktop. If this works, then I'm afraid that I'm going to have to say that the problem isn't dragging images into PSE. Instead, the problem is dragging them out of Picasa.

I think you are correct. I can drag from other places! Thank you for your help. At least that narrows things down a bit. And than you for your quick response and helpful inquiries.

One more thing before you think I'm done with you. :oD It seems even from the places I can drag I can only drag one thing in. Once there is something in my bin I can't seem to drag anything else. Do I have a setting wrong or something?
