    I received a copy of photoshop elements 8 for my birthday and really like the pp results I have been getting so far. I am learning how to use it slowly but surely. I am having issues downloading RAW from my SD card to the program "catalog". It takes FOREVER and quits partway through. Is there a way I can circumvent the PSE cataloging/organizer and just use the edit?

    Thanks,
    Susan

    Don't use Elements to download the photos. Just save them to your OS 'Pictures' folder.

    C:\Program
    Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 8.0, ​
    and then find the
    actual application file (the one ending in
    .exe) for the Editor
    or the Organizer. Right-click it, and then choose Create

    Shortcut.

    I do just this. I save my photo onto an exterior hard drive. Then I copy them into LR. I have the exterior hard drive as a backup.
    You could do the same with PSE.
