Video: Creating a contact book

If you have people that you e-mail frequently, and to whom you like to send photos, it's a good idea to include their names in your Elements Contact Book. The Contact Book is specific to Elements only. To access the Contact Book, I'll go to the Edit menu in the Organizer, and down to Contact Book, and that opens my Contact Book. Well, I don't happen to have any entries yet. To make a new contact, I'll click the New Contact button, and here I can enter all kinds of information about someone to whom I often e-mail. Now, I'm not going to bother filling out all these fields. You can do that for your own contacts. I'm just going to type the name of this contact in the First Name and Last Name fields, and then I'll use the Tab key on my keyboard to tab among the fields until I get to the Email Address field, which is the most important one, because this Contact Book is used by the e-mail features in Elements, as we'll see in the following movies.

Creating a contact book

If you have people that you e-mail frequently, and to whom you like to send photos, it's a good idea to include their names in your Elements Contact Book. The Contact Book is specific to Elements only. To access the Contact Book, I'll go to the Edit menu in the Organizer, and down to Contact Book, and that opens my Contact Book. Well, I don't happen to have any entries yet. To make a new contact, I'll click the New Contact button, and here I can enter all kinds of information about someone to whom I often e-mail. Now, I'm not going to bother filling out all these fields. You can do that for your own contacts. I'm just going to type the name of this contact in the First Name and Last Name fields, and then I'll use the Tab key on my keyboard to tab among the fields until I get to the Email Address field, which is the most important one, because this Contact Book is used by the e-mail features in Elements, as we'll see in the following movies.

I'll type this contact's Email Address, and I'm going to skip over all these other fields for now, and just click OK, and you can see that contact here in my Contact Book. I'm going to make one more contact the same way, and I would continue to fill out my Contact Book this way. Now, I'm not going to enter everybody into this Contact Book that I have, say, in my normal e-mail address book. Here I'll just add people to whom I think I'm going to be sending photos in the future, and I can always add new people later.

I can also combine my contacts into groups to tidy up my Contact Book as it gets longer. I'll click New Group here, I'll type a Group Name, like college friends, and then I'll select the contacts that I want to add to this group, and click the Add button, and then I'll click OK. Now I could send photos to individuals in this group one by one, or to the entire group by sending them to the Group Name. You can also edit any contact here by selecting the contact, clicking the Edit button, and editing that contact's information.

So I'll type here Boulder, CO, and I'll click OK. And finally, you can import contacts to this Contact Book from your Microsoft Outlook address book, or if you have a different kind of address book that uses vCards, you can import those. But I really like to keep this address book limited to just those friends and family to whom I'm likely to send photos. So I'll click OK, and that creates my new Contact Book. In the following movies, we'll see how to use the Contact Book with the e-mail attachment and photo mail features in Elements Organizer.
