Problem with importing IPHOTO into Elements 11 organizer.

I am using Adobe photoshop elements 11 Classroom in a book and am not able to reproduce the Import from IPHOTO dialog box when I choose Import from IPHOTO with the organizer "Import" drop down menu, or from the file, Import from menu on the task bar. In both cases, when I choose this option, Organizer shows a small dialog box with only one button (to cancel) and then attempts to import the enitre Iphoto library without any opportunity to select only a part or specific album. In the classroom in a book, it shows a different dialog box with the option to select any part or parts of the library. How to do I get the more comprehensive dialbog box to appear? Anyone else have this problem. BTW, I did the latest upgrade to Photoshop elements 11 and organizer 11, to no effect on this problem. Thanks for any help with this.

    Evidently CIAB hasn't been properly updated in quite a while, since that was only true for the very first version to have a from iphoto command. What you are seeing is exactly how it works in the last couple of versions of PSE. If you want to import just a few photos, export them from iphoto, put them where you want to keep them and use "from files and folders" to import them. You do know that you can set PSE as your external editor for iphoto?

    You do know that organizer is totally voluntary, right? You can just export the images and use file>open in the PSE editor if you don't want to Organize the photos.

    Should I be responding via email or am I suppose to go back to the blog and respond there? 

    It doesn't matter. It appears on the forum web page if you email and you get an email when someone posts on the web page. so it's the same either way, unless you need to  upload an attachment. For that you would need to come to the web site.


    So just follow the directions in my previous post for exporting, then importing and give it a try.
