In this course, photographer and author Jan Kabili walks you through importing, organizing, and finding your photos using the Organizer in Adobe Photoshop Elements 11. The course covers importing photos from your camera and computer; reviewing and evaluating photos; tagging images with ratings, keywords, people, and places; working with files and folders; and creating and organizing albums. Jan also shows how to find images with metadata and in the timeline, and how to apply instant photo fixes and Quick Edit image adjustments.
A caption is a bit of a searchable text that you can add to any photo in the Organizer. In the last movie, we saw that you can add a caption from inside the Information panel. You can also do that from right here in Media View in the Organizer. To add a caption to a photo, I'll right click on the photo and I'll choose Add Caption. And in this window, I'll type a caption. I'll type, A beautiful fall day, and I'll click okay. You don't see the caption here in the Grid, but if I open this photo into either Single Image view or Full Screen view, I will see the caption.
I'll double-click the image to open it into Single Image view, and there is the caption, A beautiful fall day. In fact, I can even add a caption or edit a caption right here in Single Image view by clicking on the caption, and that opens a Text box where I can continue to type. So I'll type in Colorado and press Enter or Return. So, what else can you do with the caption? Well when you go to print an image, you'll find an option in your Print dialog for adding the caption to your printed image. And, if you are searching for a photo, a caption can really come in handy because it is one more way to locate the photo.
For example, if I go back to Grid view by ckicking the Grid button, and then I'll go to the Find menu and I choose the Find By Caption or Note, I can type all or part of that caption into this window. I'll just type Colorado, and I'll select Match Any Part Of Any Word In Captions And Notes and I'll click okay. And immediately, that returns the photo that contains the caption with Colorado in it. So, adding a caption to a photo is just one more way to help you keep track of your photos here in the Organizer.
