Photoshop Elements 7 is packed with features to help amateur photographers with every stage of digital photo processing, from getting organized to sharing projects with family and friends. In Photoshop Elements 7 for Windows Essential Training, Jan Kabili shares workflow techniques for organizing, editing, creating projects, and sharing. She also demonstrates how to enhance photos with this budget-friendly software. Jan explains the latest updates to the Organizer and Editor workspaces, and also covers new features like the Smart Brush tool and Photoshop.com integration. Elements is very well known for its project features, and Jan shows how to create books, collages, panoramas, and more. Example files accompany the course.
In the Organizer, you have to select a photo thumbnail before you can act on that image. I would like to show you a couple of tricks for selecting images in the Organizer. I'm going to be using the files in the 02_03-selecting subfolder inside the Chapter 2 exercise file folder. To get here quickly, you can just click that movie in the column on the far left. Let's say that I want to delete one of these photos. I have to select it first. To select the photo, all you do is click on it, and the blue border indicates that it's been selected, and then I could go to the Edit menu at the top of the screen and choose Delete From Catalog, if I wanted to have this photo not be in this catalog.
I would even get a choice of deleting the photo completely from the hard disk, but I'm not going to choose either at this point. Let's say for example, that I was going to make a photo book over here in the Create tab in the Task pane, and I wanted to use all three of these images. Then what I would do is click on the first three images, and hold down the shift key on my keyboard, and click down on the last of the three images. And all three images are then selected. The first to last, and this one in between. To deselect, I'll click off of all of them, and I want to show you one more trick. Let's say that I want to select only the first and the third of these images, how can I do that? I'll click on the first, I'll hold down the Ctrl key this time on my keyboard, and I'll click on the last, and that would select those two images, but not the image in between. And again, I'll click off of all the images to Deselect.
You can use the techniques I have just shown you to select as many photos as you want in the Photo Browser, so that you can perform all kinds of task on them, like those located under the Share menu, the Create menu, the Fix menu, or many of the, menus at the top of the Organizer.
