I took some pictures yesterday, and when I plugged my camera into the computer, I clicked on the "view files from camera card" rather than the "import pictures" button.
After I unplugged my camera, how come in PS I can still bring up the RAW files in the "open recent" drop down menu?
Does ps store them temporarily? I don't see them anywhere else on my computer.

Can you actually open the images or is the software just recording that they were the last set of images you had?
It may make a temporary storage, or it may just create thumbnail images for browsing purposes.
I can open the image.
Why not use the "search" command on the frame number?
It says, "no items match your search"
Is "view files from camera card" a PS option ?.

That's what came up on my computer, not in PS.
PS will store pics in a temp drive. Probably on C: if you have not specified any other scratch disks. You may be able to find the pic if you enable search in system and hidden files but no guarantee.
To prove this run CCleaner which will remove temp files as well. This is worth doing as the temp directories can get quite large so a cleanup every now and then is a good idea.
Thank you! Will do.
Have you deleted the original from the card? If not reload them.
If you have don't panic you can get software to retrieve deleted files - even if the card has been reformatted. I know I retrieved a load of RAWS following a head crash on a hard drive (including my recent PA) - I tried two bits the one that retrieved the most was Zero Assumption Recovery (ZAR) - just Google it its free. Some of the RAWS were wrongly tagged as Tiff, just rename the suffix it will be OK
Thank you! I do still have it on my card. I was just trying to figure out WHY I could still pull up the image, after I unplugged my camera, when I had not imported it.
Sorry Lisa I should have read the thread properly
It's OK Nick. I appreciate your input.
Maybe your camera has a wireless capability.
