In Photoshop Elements 9 Essential Training, Jan Kabili highlights the key features of this comprehensive image organization and photo enhancement application. She shows how to correct and enhance photographs, and how to organize a growing collection of digital photos. The course also explains how to use photos in creative projects like photo books, calendars, and greeting cards, and how to share work online and in print. Exercise files accompany the course.
Adobe is paired with a number of online services to allow you to upload your photos directly from Elements Organizer to those services. You can see the current services by checking the Share panel in the Organizer. At the time, I am recording this movie those include Flickr and Facebook and SmugMug Gallery and if I click more options here, I see that I can send my photos to CEIVA Photo Frame and I can share them with Kodak EasyShare Gallery. The available services could change over time, and the way that you upload each service can also change.
But let's just take a look at how we can upload to Facebook and Flickr now. I have a couple of photos that I am going to select here in the organizer by clicking on one and Ctrl+Clicking, that's Command+Clicking on a Mac on the other. Then I'm going to go over to the Share panel in the organizer and I am going to click Share to Facebook. Now, I have already created a Facebook account over on Facebook. I am not logged in at the moment, so this is the first screen that I see asking me to authorize uploading media to my Facebook account. I'll click Authorize and that takes me to Facebook, where I can log into Facebook and I'll click Login to Facebook.
Now, I see this instruction to close this window and return to Elements. Back in the Elements, I'll click Complete Authorization and that opens the Facebook upload window here in Elements. Over on the left, you can see the two photos that I'd selected to upload and at this point I can add more photos for my Organizer by clicking the Plus symbol down here or if I didn't want to upload one of these photos, I can select it here and then click the Minus button, but I'll go with these two photos. Over on the right, I'll choose where to upload the photos.
I could create a new album in Facebook, as I am uploading or I can Upload the Photos to an existing Facebook album. From this menu, I'll select the album. I'll choose my seasons album that I already created over in Facebook, and I have already set the permissions there as to who can see the photos in that album. So there's nothing to do in this menu, all I have left to do is to click Upload. When the upload is complete, I see this message and I can either clicked Done to close this window or I can go right from here to Facebook to see my photos.
I am going to do that, I'll click Visit Facebook, and that takes me right to my Facebook account. Here's my news feed where you can see the two photos that I just uploaded. I can also see these in Facebook by going to my Profile and clicking on the Photos tab. Here's my seasons album and if I click on that album here in Facebook, I can see the two photos that I uploaded here directly from Elements. I am going to go back to Elements, because I want to show you how you can upload photos to Flickr. I still have those two photos selected in the Organizer and this time when I go to the Share panel, I'll click Share to Flickr.
I'll click Authorize to authorize Elements to upload to Flickr and that takes me to the Flickr login screen. I'll type my Yahoo ID and password here and click Sign in. In the next screen, I'll authorize Elements to link to my Flickr account by clicking OK, I'll AUTHORIZE IT. Now, I have an instruction to close this window and that takes me back to Elements where I have one more button to click to complete this authorization to upload to Flickr.
That takes me to the Flickr upload screen here in Elements. Just like in the Facebook upload window, I can add to the photos that I am going to upload to Flickr by clicking the green + sign and then navigating to my organizer and choosing some photos. I can remove a photo from those I am going to upload by selecting it and clicking the Minus sign. I can upload these photos as a Flickr photo set either an existing set or a new one that I create here or I can just upload the photos from my photo stream. Here, I can choose whether everyone will be able to see these photos or whether they're going to be private and visible only to friends or only to family or both.
I'll click friends here. The photos will be automatically tagged with the Elements Organizer tag and then I'll click Upload. When the upload is complete, I can choose to either close this by clicking Done or I can go right to Flickr to visit my photos. There in my web browser, I can see my Flickr photo stream with these two photos that I just uploaded directly from Elements. This new ability to upload photos directly from Elements to Flickr, and to Facebook and to the other online partners, is really exciting and a great way to share your photos.
