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.
Earlier in the course, we saw that your options are limited when it comes to sorting your photos to put them into different order. There is the Sort By Menu here that gives you the options of sorting by Newest, Oldest, or Import Batch. But what if you're trying to sequence the photos for use in a project? You can't just grab a photo here in a folder or in your entire catalog and move it. But what you can do is make an album from those photos and move the photos around in the album. And if all the photos are in the same folder, it's quick and easy to make an album by just right-clicking on the folder and choosing Create An Instant Album.
And that will make an album with all of the content from that particular folder. If I now scroll up to My Albums panel, you can see the New Album with the folder name from which it was created. I can change that name by right- clicking on it and choosing Rename, so maybe I'll call this 0503 Fall photos and click okay. The beauty of having these photos in the album is that now I can move them around at will. I'm still looking at the folder so let me click on the album in the Albums panel, and now, you can see that each photo has a sequential number and I can move them around at will.
So if I want this photo to be the first photo in the sequence, I'll just click on it and drag over here, and release my mouse, and the numbering changes. And maybe I want this one to be the last so I'll take it over here. Now that doesn't change the order of the photos in the folder, but it does give me a way to resequence the photos so that I can see how they look in a different order. But if I do go back to my folder, you'll see that the photos are still in their original order.
