This issue has occurred on Windows Vista 32 bit and Windows 7 64 bit OS running PSE 9.0-9.0.3.

1) The Elements Organizer seems to have some workflow issues. It is not integrated well with the PSE editor and takes some time to go from one to another. If you select a photo in Organizer, you then have to right click and specifically select "Edit with PSE" and wait some more for it finally to load into the Editor.

2) If you use RAW files, when you do a "File+Open" Adobe uses the Windows File Manager and you cannot see thumbnails of your RAW images as the format is not supported. Why on earth use the Windows File Manager...PSE supports many more image formats that Windows why not open with a dialog that can read RAW files as well as all the more common ones.

3) The Elements Organizer does not automatically "Refresh" your thumbnails after downloading images from either a camera or a memory card. Even after a manual "Refresh" you still cannot view your recently downloaded files until you exit the Organizer and re-launch.
