When you're done working on a photo creation in Elements Create Workspace, you can output that creation either to your printer or you can click the Done button and Save it or you can send it out for commercial printing. If you do click the Done button to save your file, you can choose to Save it in the .PSE format, which is a special Photoshop Elements format that you can reopen into the Create Workspace for further editing. How do you open a file like that? Well, from the Editor you can go to the File menu, go to Open, and navigate to the .PSE file.
From the Organizer, select the .PSE file, mine is here, and by the way, this is located in the 19-06 folder, not in the Card 2 subfolder. So after selecting the PSE file, I'm going to go to the arrow to the right of the Fix menu and I'm going to choose Full Photo Edit. That opens my Editor to the Create tab, and as you can see that PSE file is open here. This PSE file happens to be a greeting card, a greeting card that has both a front and an inside.
So there are really three pieces to this card, the front and two pages to the inside. I want to show you that there are other ways that you can export the pieces of a photo creation like this, and this is new in Photoshop Elements 10. First, I'm going to maximize my Editor so it fills the screen, and then I'm going to go to the File menu and down to Export. Now, because I'm working on a card, this says Export Card; if I were working on a Photo Book, it would say Export Photo Book. I'll select Export Card, and in this dialog box I see that I can export the pieces of this card as individual JPEGs.
Why would I want to do that? Well, maybe I want to share them with a colleague or someone I'm working with on the design to get their input. So I can save the individual pieces as JPEG, in this case that would give me three JPEGs, one for the front and one for each of the inside pages. Similarly, I could Save as three separate TIFFs, or I could Save as one PDF with multiple pages. I'm going to choose JPEG, and then I'm going to browse out to my Desktop. And there I'm going to open my Projects folder and I'm going to click OK, and click OK again to save the pieces of this card as JPEGs.
Then I'll go out to my Desktop to see what Elements has saved for me. Here in my Projects folder, among all these other dark blue pieces which are from other projects, there are three JPEGs. This JPEG is the outside of the card, this is one of the inside pages, and this is the second inside page. And because these are each JPEGs, I can send them as email attachments, I can upload them to web sites, and otherwise share them with friends and colleagues. So that's the new export feature in Elements 10.
