Photoshop Elements: Ability to use Elements work as a Media Server

Hi. I love the photoshop and premiere elements products because it allows me to maintain and manage all my images and video in one place. I also own a PS3 which has a media receiver built in that I use to display my images and video from my Win 7 PC. Unfortunately I have to rely on WMP (or other Media Servers) to present my images and video to the PS3. The problem is that it requires that withon PSE I must save tags, etc to the windows files and then refresh the WMP database before the PS3 sees any changes I make to the organisation of my media or any meta data changes I might make using PSE. Its cumbersome and time consuming when there is a lot of media. It would be GREAT if PSE could be a Media Server that was DLNA compliant. It would save an enormous amount of time mucking around in WMP or any other media server to update "their" databases to reflect changes made in the PSE database.

Would appreciate your comments or suggestions if you know of a third party product/add-on that can do it. Cheers Stephen

It would be fantastic (I think) if the Photoshop Organizer could be enhanced to act as or be accessible to a Media Server so that all teh wonderful content it manages and maintains can be made available to Media receivers. At present I have to rely on saving metadata, etc so that the media servers can pickup the information to share. Do you have any plans to enahnce the component or open up the database?
