Bring all your photos and videos from any folder on a computer or from devices such as cameras, card readers, and scanners into the Elements Organizer. You can then organize them in many ways and make them look great.
Convert a catalog from a previous version
When you import media, Photoshop Elements stores the details of the imported files in a catalog. The catalog contains links to the files and records of details, such as tags that you attach to your media.
If you created a catalog with a previous version of Photoshop Elements, Photoshop Elements prompts you to convert your catalog so that it is compatible with the current version. Converting a catalog is a one-time process. For more information, see Convert a catalog of a previous version.
Start importing photos and videos
Bulk import helps you to quickly import the photos and videos from your computer to the Organizer. You can either import all in one go or view what folders and subfolders contain and then choose what you want to import.
In the Import Media dialog box, choose the folder that has the subfolders containing your media. If the folder is not listed, choose Add Folder and browse to the folder you want to import photos from.
You can also import files from a folder on your computer by selecting Import > From Files and Folders.
You can easily bring media files from your camera or card reader, and import them directly into the Elements Organizer.
