Photoshop Elements 8 for Windows Essential Training highlights the important features of this comprehensive image organization and photo enhancement application. Photographer Jan Kabili shows how to use Photoshop Elements to organize and edit photos, build photos into projects like slideshows and photo books, and share photos with family and friends. Jan explains how to train Photoshop Elements 8 to recognize and tag faces, use the Smart Brush for targeted adjustments, and share photos using Adobe's online service, photoshop.com. She also dives deep into the application's editing tools, which rival those of the full product, Photoshop, in their ability to take snapshots and turn them into great photos. Exercise files accompany the course.
If you're wondering whether you can burn photos directly onto a CD or DVD from Elements' Organizer, the answer is yes and it's really simple to do. Of course, you have to put a CD or DVD into your computer and when you do, you may see Window's AutoPlay dialog come up like this. I suggest that you dismiss this dialog by clicking the X and work through Elements instead. The first step is to select the images that I want to burn. I'm going to click on the first one and hold down the Shift key and click on the last to select all ten of those.
Then in the Organizer, I'll go to the Share tab in the task panel and from there I'll choose Burn Data CD/DVD. That opens this Burn Data dialog box. I'll select the drive that contains my DVD burner. By default, the DVD is named by date. I could leave it like that or I could type my own name. I'm going to type train pix. I can choose the right speed. I'll leave it at the Maximum and then I'll just click OK. Elements then goes ahead and burns your disk. It may ask you to verify the burn and I generally do, and when everything is done, you will see this message and your DVD burner may open so that you can take the disk out.
I'll click OK and that's how simple it is to burn data to a CD or DVD from the Organizer.
