I’m a longtime user of PSE however I’ve forgotten a simple PSE Organizer rule.  I used my desktop copy of PSE after a long rest.  Both programs are on Windows 10,  desktop and laptop. 

After a long summer trip,  noticed that when I import new camera microSD cards to download from my Canon 80D or Nikon Coolpix P530 the screen results are different.  After I import the side by sides of the thumbnail images id the photos id what camera operator used.  I find this helpful when putting albums together.  It also shows me by inserting a -1 that it is an duplicate.  

At the bottom of the images they each should have three small id lines that show stars, date and id’s the camera I used, stars aren’t important but the date and camera are:

(Canon)        and        (Nikon)

******                       ******

8/26/2019                   6/27/2019

I just can’t remember the location Confusedin PSE program where I can tell Organizer to check so that the camera type is IDed.  I thought it might be in Preferences , but I couldn’t find it there.  I’m looking through my old manuals by no luck.

I am hoping a helpful Photoshop Element’s user night see this request and let me what setting I should use to id the camera under my images.


Thanks for your help,

I was able to dig up an Photoshop book and found the answer I needed.  If you want to see the File Names,  On Organizer go to View Menu and top of  Organizer program , half way down is Details, and File Names appear.

Hey Barb, I’m so glad you found your answer – since I am clueless when it comes to PhotoShop Elements.

btw – to see the date and camera info using Google Photos:

  • on a computer, click the i button to open the info panel to the side
  • on a mobile device, just swipe up on the photo to reveal all the metadata
