Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is Michelle and I am excited to get started with you.So I can better assist you, I will need additional information. When you saved the edited picture from adobe, do you remember where you saved it?
In the elements organizer
Are you able to drag the photo from elements organizer and onto the desktop?
didn't know I could do that; let me check
Yes, I was able to drag them
Ok now what happens when you now drag the photo from the desktop and into iphoto
iphoto accept them
Ok great. So it looks like iphoto is not able to communicate directly with adobe
I don't understand what I did wrong to begin with. I've downloaded into iPhoto before, edited in adobe, then imported the edited photos back into iPhoto. This time the photos I worked on were in iPhoto via photo stream.
What can I do to get iPhoto to communicate with adobe?
Ohh ok, that makes a little sense. It is a little tricky working with photos from photo stream because they are technically not stored to your computers hard drive. They are in icloud. Instead, use the photos that are actually stored on your hard drive and not from the photo stream section in iphoto
How do I get iCloud photos edited?
Earlier you mentioned that you edited a photo stream picture, did you get it from the photo stream section in iphoto or did you pull it from the entire iphoto database
It was in the photo stream section or file (don't know what the entire iPhoto database is)
In the left column you will see library. Under that choose photo. That displays all of your photos in the library
That's what I did, and then picked the photo stream file
Ok, try with another picture.
Proceed like you normally do
Do you mean import it to adobe again?
Yes, just one picture
OK, I have another photo from the photo stream file imported into adobe
Now edit it like you normally do and then try to import it back to iphoto like you normally did it before
saved it in organizer, but Elements Organizer still does not come up to be able to select from
when I try to import it into iPhoto
How are you trying to import them?
I go back to iPhoto and import thru it. I've done it before, but Elements is not coming up as an option
When you choose to import to library. Type in element in the search box in the upper right corner
You should now see elements. Now navigate where you saved the picture
Looks like that is going to work. Is this because the pictures were in iCloud? Is dragging the pictures onto the desktop another alternative?
Pictures from iCloud can defiantly be tricky. If for some reason it does not work the normal route, you can use to drag to the desktop option. After it imports into iphoto, you can delete it from the desktop
I hope this works!
Im sure it will. Would you like me to stick around until you are done to confirm?
Thanks, but my husband is hungry! I have to fix dinner and then come back probably tomorrow.
Sure. I understand. You can finish it up tonight. If for some reason you run into issues, let me know tomorrow.
