In this course, author Jan Kabili introduces the photo organizing, editing, and sharing features of Adobe Photoshop Elements 10, the less expensive version of Photoshop that’s ideal for casual photographers who want to achieve professional results. The course covers importing, organizing, and finding photos with the Organizer. It explains how and when to use each of the editing workspaces—from the simple Quick Fix and Guided Edit workspaces to the Full Edit workspace for enhancing your photos—including making photo corrections, retouching, compositing images, and adding text. The final chapter offers creative ways to share photos with Elements, including print projects like greeting cards, calendars, and books, emailing photos, and posting them on Facebook and Flickr.
Another way to view and locate photos in the Organizer is by date, and you can do that in Date view. I'll go up to the Display menu and I'll switch to Date view by choosing it here. In Date view, I see this big monthly calendar with some photo thumbnails on particular days. Wherever there's a photo thumbnail, that means that there are photos in this catalog that were shot or scanned or otherwise captured on that day. If I move my mouse over one of these photo thumbnails, I get a tooltip that tells me how many items there are for that particular day. And if I want to see those more closely, I can click on that date and then over here in the column on the left, I can see a larger view of each photo captured on that day.
I can cycle through them by clicking these arrows or if I click the Play button, I can get an automatic little slideshow of the photos from that day. If I want to write any notes about the day, I can do that here. And if I want to see where in my Media Browser this particular photo is located, I can click here and that will take me back to the Media Browser. I'm not going to do that right now. Instead, I want to show you how you can navigate in the calendar. You can use the arrows here to go forward one month at a time or back one month at a time. Or if you want to go to a particular month, you can click on the month here and you get a list of all of the months in this year in which there are photos.
So, if I want to see what I took in June of 2011, I can click here, and I can change the year the same way. At the bottom of the calendar, I can choose to see a yearly calendar, and each of the blue blocks here indicates on day on which photos were taken and included in this catalog. And if I click on one of those blocks, over here in the column on the right, I can see all the photos taken on that day. I can also choose to see the calendar by day, by clicking Day down here at the bottom.
Here I have a larger view of all the photos taken on that day. I can scroll through the filmstrip on the right, selecting one to see a bigger view here, or I can use these arrows to cycle through them, or I can click the Play button to see a nice big automatic slideshow of these photos. And I even can view all the photos of this day in Full Screen view if I want. When I'm done in the Calendar view, I can get back to the regular view of the Media Browser either by clicking this big blue Media Browser arrow or coming up to the Display menu and choosing Media Browser.
So that's one more alternative for viewing your photos here in the Organizer.
