Set Files Preferences in Photoshop Elements 12 Organizer

The Files preferences, in Photoshop Elements 12 Organizer, shown in this figure, offer options for managing file data, connecting to missing files, handling preview sizes, and choosing file and folder locations for saved files. In Windows, you find additional items, such as preferences for prompts to back up data and burn CD/DVDs.

The options in these Files preferences are

  • Import EXIF Caption: If EXIF camera data is available and includes captions, choosing this option results in importing the captions when you're adding files to the Organizer.

  • Automatically Search for and Reconnect Missing Files (Windows): If you move a file to another folder or rename the folder in Explorer, the Organizer loses the connection from the Organizer window to the file location. Selecting this check box results in an automatic search for missing files.

  • Automatically Generate Thumbnails for Video Files: When checked, a thumbnail of the first frame in a video file is generated and visible when in the Desktop/Finder view.

  • Automatically Prompt to Backup Files and Catalog: When checked, you get a reminder dialog box if your files have been backed up routinely.

  • Enable Multisession Burning to CD/DVD (Windows): This option enables multisession burns to discs that support multisession burning.

  • Rotate JPEGs Using Orientation Metadata: If the metadata includes orientation defaults, selecting this option rotates JPEG images to the orientation matched in the metadata.

  • Rotate TIFFs Using Orientation Metadata: If the metadata includes orientation defaults, selecting this option rotates TIFF images to the orientation matched in the metadata.

  • Folders for Saved Files (Browse): Click the Browse button to select a target folder for saved images.

  • Preview File Size: From the drop-down menu, you can select different preview resolutions. A preview is created when you double-click a photo in the Organizer.

  • Media Cache (Macintosh): You can browse for a media cache, which permits you to quickly perform repetitive actions.
