What Happened to My People Category in Photoshop Elements 11?

When you first install Photoshop Elements 11 and open the Organizer for the first time the, you will probably want to verify that all of your Categories, Sub-Categories, and Tags from your early version’s Catalog survived.

Chances are, after a bit of looking, you will find that your Events Category is now listed as Events (Tags) in the Tags Panel, and your Places Category is shown as Places (Tags), but your People Category is missing entirely.

Well it’s there. You just have to make it visible. On the Menu bar click on View > Show People Tags Panel, as shown in the Figure below.

Turn on People Tags

Now you will see your People Category from your converted Catalog, but it will be permanently placed at the bottom of the Tags Panel. It cannot be repositioned as is the case for other Categories. Adobe really wants you to start using the People environment or workspace at the top of the Organizer screen.
