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.
Let's take a look at how to identify people manually in single image view. This is the procedure to follow if the automatic people recognition system that I covered in the last movie misses some people in your photos, maybe because the faces aren't clear. It's also what you can do if you just add a couple new photos of people in your catalog, and you want to quickly identify them without going through the whole people recognition system. Here in Media View, I'm going to double click this photo. And that opens it in single image view, with a white box around the girl's face.
The white box means that the Organizer recognizes this as a face. If I move my cursor over that white box, the organizer asks me, who is this? I'll click the who is this? label. And the Organizer gives me some suggestions, based on the information it already has about people that I frequently photograph. None of these suggestions is correct in this case. This happens to be Steph, so I'll type her name. And I'll press enter or return on my keyboard to identify her in my people recognition system. To go back to Grid view, I can just double-click that photo; and here I'm going to do the same thing with this photo.
I'll double click this photo. There's a white box, and this time, instead of several suggestions, the Organizer asks you point blank, is this Mary? Because it recognizes this person from a photo that I already fed into the database. Yes, this happens to be Mary, so I'll just click the green check mark. If it weren't Mary, I would click the red cancel symbol, and type in the correct name. So that names this photo in my people recognition system. Again, I'll double click this photo to go back to the grid and let's look at one more photo.
I'll double click this one And in this case the system is recognizing just one of these two girls as a face. And it's asking is this Darla because I identified Darla in this photo in the last movie using automatic people recognition. So again I'll click the green check mark here. But it doesn't seem to recognize that there is someone else here. That's okay. If I have a photo that the system can't recognize as a face, I'll just come down to the task bar and click mark face, and that gives me another white box.
I'll click inside that box and I'll drag it around that girl's face. I'll click, who's this, and I'll type Susan. That's someone that the organizer already knows, because I have other photos of Susan that I have run through the people recognition system. So, as I type Susan, it tries to auto- complete for me; I'll just click on Susan there, and, I'll click the green check mark. And now as I move over each of these faces, you can see that it's recognized as a face, and that it's now identified with the name of the appropriate person.
There's one more thing that you might sometimes see in single-image view. When you're working in this view, you might see a white box around something that isn't a person's face. In that case, you can dismiss the white box by just clicking the x at the top right of the box. But I'm just going to leave the box here in this case, because this is a picture of a person.
