I am trying to use batch processing "process multiple files" option to convert 100 single page PDF files from a directory with only those items to JPGs in a separate output and empty directory. Photoshop Elements opens the PDF files in image mode each as separate internal windows but fails with this error:

"There were no source files that could be opened by photoshop elements".

I've tried with only 2 files with the same failure.

Software: PSE 11
OS: Windows 7

Note: Opening the same PDF file in PSE 11 by itself (not batch mode), and doing "Save as" JPG works just fine, great in fact. I would rather not purchase license to zamzar.com to do this since I own PSE 11 in addition to owning earlier PSE 10, PSE 8, and PSE 4.

Please help.
