  1. Just downloaded Adobe Bridge and am finally seeing my whole Scrapgirls folder with all that is in it again! Actually got started doing a few pages or my annual calendar - hooray!!! Still miss my Picasa...but better than nothing!! Sandy
  2. So you are using Windows 10? I do all my scrapbooking on a Mac which has been great, up until this recent upgrade! Good luck!
  3. Hi there! Did you decide to use Adobe Bridge? Is that why you spent time filing, unzipping, etc.? It's funny, you'd think this would be an easy process!!! I just want to see all my files, open, in front of me, in the Scrapgirls main folder! Sandy
  4. Wow - as I mentioned, my scrapbooking has come to a halt! Not only busy with work-from-home during the pandemic, but still trying to decide on a way to organize my files. I've received a refund from AcdSee. Now I am trying to work in Photoshop Elements Organizer 14 - it keeps crashing. I can't even determine the simplest way to start! An album vs all my folders! Good grief!!! I will certainly look at Adobe Bridge - and I will continue to try and make Organizer work. I'm just not sure why or how it can be this hard!!! I only want to keep all my collections together - see all the elements in the folders under a designer's set of initials as categorized, etc. Thank you all so much for checking back in - I will try to check back sooner rather than later. I hope you all are well! Sandy
  5. I've contacted ACDSee again, and they tell me I can't keep file folders open and it can't show the sub-folders on a Mac. I've asked for a refund as this was the only reason I wanted it. If you can convince me that I can see this on a Mac, I'll call off my attack!! I just want a simple file viewer! My scrapbooking has come to a halt! Sandy
  6. Thank you so much for this explanation. I can't tell you how many hours I have spent trying to find a replacement for Picasa. I have Lightroom and I have PSE 14 for my editing. I also have a ton of photos, like many of you, I am sure. So I have ACDSee for Mac 6. I have a support ticket open with them. I want to be able to see what is in each sub folder easily when I scroll (like I could with Picasa). I also want to hide certain folders and ONLY use this to look at my scrapbooking files. I tend to scroll through the collections and glance at color schemes that might work for a particular set of photos I might be looking to scrap. I tend to work from one collection at a time, so I don't search for "buttons" per se. It tends to be a color scheme that catches my eye. Are you able to hide folders in ACDSee? Any tips you can provide on this would be so welcome. I'm about ready to ask for a refund!!! Hope you and yours are well during this unprecedented time. Sandy
  7. Can you share with me what it is you like about ACDSee and how you use it? I love that I could pull up Picasa and see all of the embellishments and kits all across the screen. They were sorted by folder, but I could easily see what was in each one. I'm looking into Phiewer for the Mac...I need to resolve this so I can see what is in all my folders!
  8. It is a Mac thing for sure. But I've read that it's a problem for Windows 10, I did not have a problem until I upgraded to the latest version. Had I known, I would not have done it! I find Picasa to be so helpful - it allows me to see all of my collections and elements right in front of me without opening all the folders. I'm beside myself trying to come up with the best plan!! Everything else seems to complicated - ACDSee seems close but still way more than I need. I have Lightroom and PSE - I just need this for a photo viewer! Sandy
  9. Hello everyone - I hope that each of you are doing as well as can be during these unsettling times. TeeCee - I know you said you also worked with and loved Picasa. With my latest upgrade to the Mac, Picasa no longer works. Something to do with 32 bit vs. the OS being 64 bit - not that I understand. I am looking for a photo viewer to replace Picasa. With Picasa, it would show "open" folders with all the elements in it and I could scroll down and see what I wanted to work with. My question is - how do I select a photo viewer that will show me what is in the folders without having to open each one. My files are all in one main folder, Scrapgirls, and then organized by the file names they come in as. So all my ABR_ are together, etc. I want to see what is in each of them without having to open all (hundreds) of them. Am I making any sense? Right now I have to open every folder to find something. I don't find "search" to be helpful. I prefer to see the collections! I welcome your thoughts and suggestions!! Totally lost without my Picasa! Sandy
  10. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!! Your responses are so helpful...I'll stick to the .psd files as I move along. Brandy, I think I have almost every one of your collections - love them!!
  11. Thanks very much - I agree! I guess its the png and jpg files that are throwing me off the most!
  12. Hi All - it's been a while! I just purchased Brandy Murry's Background Blenders 7 and am confused. There are several .png files, several .jpg files and several .psd files. Within the .psd files there are sometimes 2 layers. I can't for the life of me figure out how to use these. Do I select only one layer in the .psd file? Attach my layout paper to only that one layer? Also, the .png and .jpg files are really tiny - what are they used for? Sorry, never was this confused about blenders before! Bought these with the intention of using them as she did on the layout with a blonde woman featured in the detailed images. Thanks for any help! Sandy
  13. This is awesome! So helpful! I am going to play around with it tonight and hopefully take 10 years off my face! 🤗 Thank you again, you ladies are all amazing!! Sandy
  14. If anyone can answer this question, I know Scrapgirls can! I recently read a very helpful article on the Scrapgirls site about duplicating a photo and using Screen to lighten it. Awesome! It was so helpful. I have a photo (up close, facial shot) that I would like to "soften" for lack of a better word and am wondering if there is a filter or a screen or something to just adjust it a tad. It's a photo that I would like to use on a brochure, so I need a close up, but hey, CLOSE up is a little too CLOSE up! Any suggestions would be awesome! I am using PSE 14. Thanks in advance! Sandy
  15. Emolyn - you are a doll!!!!! With your information and enough clicks, I've got it!! You are truly a gift! I've spent way too much time on this, I most sincerely appreciate your help!!! Sandy
