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.
By default, Media View displays your photos in this nice clean interface without any text surrounding the photos. But there will be times when you want to see some details about a photo, like its filename or its date. You can see that kind of information right here in the Grid in Media View if you go up to the View menu and you enable Details. That displays the date associated with each photo, along with a line of stars that you can use to rate each photo, as I'll show you how to do later in this chapter. If you want to see the filenames here as well, then in the View menu, you are not only have to enable Details but filenames, too.
And filenames won't be available here, unless you first have enabled Details. So I'll click on Filenames to enable that, too; and now under each photo, I see the filename, including the suffix, that indicates the format of the file, which is also a useful information to have. In fact, I think this information is so useful, that I usually leave it showing all the time, as I'll do for the rest of the course.
