    Default Super Easy ...Organizing Your Stash!!!!

    I've never claimed to be the tech-e-ist, but maybe claim to be the most improved...
    I've had a ton of recent computer issues.
    ... and some of the issues were with ACDSee. When I decided to undertake the task the other day and 'start over'....
    ...............................
    After my catalog was in place. [yes I started tagging my old fashioned way]
    but

    I went into Windows 7 > search in the upper right corner - a tagged word from my catalog in ACDSee
    my 'test' was "flowers" ...[well duh, most designers have some...]
    I let it do its thing....
    Then
    Ctrl+A to select all....dragged the entire chunk to "flowers" nested under digital elements in my ACDSee catalog...
    and guess what??
    They were all there!

    IF I click on one of the flowers and select "go to file"....whooooo - hooooo!!! takes me to the kit on my hard drive!!


    At present not all the metadata is embedded [but then again, if I went the slow way it would not be there yet either...]

    Now, here is a disclaimer....IF a designer chose to name items in their kits as elements 1, 2, 3, etc [not a great idea in my opinion, but I'm not in charge...] this will not work.

    Anyhow, I will sleep better tonight.
    Enjoy.

    Great information, Michelle! Thank you!

    I lost my ACDSee about a month ago when I had to do a system restore - I was still using 14 and they only allow 30 days to download So I'm finding myself starting over again using the PSE Organizer.

    I'm not looking forward to it, but I'm so lost without having my supplies organized!

    Tammy, if you paid for a copy of 14, then you should be able to re- install it. They will just have to find the license number and order number.
    I have 12 and the disk. I re-installed over the other one. I'd insist on another copy, and then buy the disc so you have a copy.
    do not trust just DL or the cloud.

    Thanks, Michelle.
    I contacted ACDSee and they reactivated it so I could download again - but only until December 6th. I guess if I have more computer issues after that, I'm going to have to buy it all over again. That seems silly, but I suppose it's normal with software downloads.

    Tammy - if it's an exe file, save it onto a thumb drive, EHD, or burn it to a CD so you will have it in case you need it later.

    I don't have ACDsee either, but I do often search "string" or "button" or "star" and find things for filling in on the LOs, so I LOVE when designers label their elements accordingly!

    I agree, if the elements are labeled, I just use the windows search. My husband put a back up hard drive on Layaway and will probably pick it up with our Christmas stuff soon, so I really need to go through my stash and get rid of stuff (mostly freebies)from back when I started scrapping before I save to the new hard drive thingy! No ACDsee for me, either. Not sure my computer can handle another program!
