Video: Sharing online albums from the Organizer to Photoshop.com

Let's walk through the steps of creating a new album and uploading it to Photoshop.com, the online extra services site that's tied to Elements. As I explained in the last movie in order to do this, you have to signed up for and signed in with an Adobe ID. And when you have done that, you will see this Welcome message up here meaning that you are signed in. I'm going to create a new album from the photos that you see here. I will first select all those photos, and then I'll go to the Organize tab in the column on the right. I will go to the Albums panel and I will click the green plus sign just as I did in an earlier movie where explained albums.

The final chapter offers creative ways to share photos with Elements, including print projects like greeting cards, calendars, and books, emailing photos, and posting them on Facebook and Flickr.

Topics include:
  • Importing photos from a camera, computer, or iPhoto library
  • Adding keyword tags and ratings to photos
  • Automatically tagging people
  • Organizing photos into albums
  • Renaming and moving photos
  • Correcting common photo problems automatically

Sharing online albums from the Organizer to Photoshop.com

Let's walk through the steps of creating a new album and uploading it to Photoshop.com, the online extra services site that's tied to Elements. As I explained in the last movie in order to do this, you have to signed up for and signed in with an Adobe ID. And when you have done that, you will see this Welcome message up here meaning that you are signed in. I'm going to create a new album from the photos that you see here. I will first select all those photos, and then I'll go to the Organize tab in the column on the right. I will go to the Albums panel and I will click the green plus sign just as I did in an earlier movie where explained albums.

Here I'll choose New Album and I will give the album a name, I will call this oldcars. I am going to uncheck Backup/Sync. If I left that checked then Elements would automatically try to keep this album in sync between Photoshop.com, Elements on this computer and if I were running Elements on other computers, those too. I want to skip that so, I'll leave that option unchecked. Here you can see there is both the Content tab which displays thumbnails of all of the photos in this album and a Sharing tab.

I am going to click the Sharing tab so that I can set up the way that I'm going to share this album on Photoshop.com. Here in the center of the screen, I can see the default template for a slideshow to upload to Photoshop.com. This isn't exactly the template I would choose for these particular photos, but there are plenty of other ones to choose from up here in this film strip. So I will click on the scrollbar here and drag to the right, looking for another template to use. Notice that some of the templates have a gold ribbon at the top left corner.

That means that they're only accessible if you're a Plus Member of Photoshop.com and there is a fee for that. But that does get you extra space at Photoshop.com as well as additional content here and in other places in the program. I'm going to select this option, I will double-click it and that builds a template here in the window with my photos. I like this one better. There is not as much moving around and I think that helps to focus on the photos.

Now I'm going to go back over to the Sharing tab on the right and I'm going to setup some parameters for how my album is going to be shared. First, I will check the Share to Photoshop.com option here. With that checked, if I go to my personal URL at Photoshop.com and login, I will be able to see my photos. But I want the public to be able to them too. So I also need to check Display in My Gallery, and that makes the album and the slideshow public on Photoshop.com.

I really want to make sure that my friends and family can find my slideshow and my album, so I would like to show them an email with my personal URL at Photoshop.com and I can do that from right here. I will click in this Message field and I will type a message. I will include my personal URL at Photoshop.com. And down here I can see a list of everyone who's in my contact book; I only have one person so far. I can send it to that person by checking her name.

If I want to add more people to my contact book, I can do that from this icon on the right. Down here I can specify what my viewers can do with my photos. Now normally I'm not going to want people who come to the web site to be able to download copies of my photos or to be able to Order Prints of my photos from a third-party partner of Adobes, like Shutterfly. But I can imagine that if there were an event like a wedding and I had taken some personal photos there that I wanted to share with my family that I might want to check these options.

I will leave them unchecked for now and I'm all done setting up my slideshow and my album and ready to share it at Photoshop.com, so I will click the Done button. That takes me back to the Organizer and in my Albums panel I can see two arrows to the left of the oldcars album. And that means that they are currently uploading to Photoshop.com. It may take a few minutes, but shortly I'll be able to go to the site and see an album and a slideshow of these photos.

I'm going to click off of my oldcars album into this blank area, and then I will click on it one more time, and now you can see that there are two icons to the right of the album name. The purpose of these icons is to stop sharing the album at Photoshop.com if I change my mind about that and to restart it again, if I'd like it to be available to the public once more. If I come over here and right-click on the oldcars album that brings up this menu from which I could choose to Edit the album which would take me back to the Content and Sharing tabs, Delete the album or View the oldcars album online.

I'm going to do that. And that will launch my Web browser and take me to my area of Photoshop.com to view the slideshow. So as you can see that's a pretty painless way to take photos from Elements, put them in an interesting template like this and get the whole thing up online within minutes.
