Hi are these RAW or jpeg? Could be that you have a RAW format ELements 9 won't recognise. You can update free, though I find this almost impossible on my Mac.

I get the same problem with my Canon S100 and E9. E9 doesn't recognise S100 RAWs so I've either got to buy an upgrade to E10 or CS5 or use DPP. Might be the same with Nikons if you've bought a new camera.

RAW is just the generic name for the file format.

Every camera model has its own unique RAW specifications, that is why all the software companies have to update from time to time to include these new models.

For example, Lightroom which was update on Tuesday now includes the Niklkn models: D4, D800, D800E.

No doubt another update in a month or so for the new Canon announced last week.

Perhaps I did not make the original query clear enough.
Firstly most if not all my photos are taken in RAW on either a D3100 or D7000.
I then download into elements 9 organiser (suitably progged for RAW) view the originals those I dont like I delete and save remainder in a suitably labelled catalogue.
When I then open elements edit and open a catalogue not all of the images are available.
This only occurs in elements and is the same for all my catalogues.
When I open the catalogue in viewNX2 all the images are there.

Another question if I might.
Following advice given on this site I had convinced myself to purchase Capture NX2 rather than PS5 when I upgrade to a pc in a few weeks time.
I am not into excessive post processing.
However having visited Focus and watched a demo of Topaz I am now yet again not sure which to buy.
Has anyone expierience of comparing using Topaz and Capture.

Is the problem with elements new or has that always been the case?

As already suggested make sure its all up to date and check all of your settings, sometimes these problems can be as simple as ticking a box.

I'm not familiar with the software you're talking about but have you thought of Lightroom? The features, functions and editing are all easy to use particularly if you're not into heavy editing where PS steals the show!

Hope this is of some help Smile

If I recall correctly there is a differenc between viewing images in the PSE catalogue and actually importing them into the catalogue. From you description it seems that you are aware of this but I just want to confirm.

yes aware of this, the images are in the catalogue in the organiser yet when in edit mode and I open the relevant catalogue approx 30%-40% of the images do not appearSad

I'm not familiar with Elements but check whether there is a filter option of any sort in the catalogue. I've been caught out with such things in other packages, having set a filter without being aware,
