In this course, author Jan Kabili introduces the photo organizing, editing, and sharing features of Adobe Photoshop Elements 10, the less expensive version of Photoshop that’s ideal for casual photographers who want to achieve professional results. The course covers importing, organizing, and finding photos with the Organizer. It explains how and when to use each of the editing workspaces—from the simple Quick Fix and Guided Edit workspaces to the Full Edit workspace for enhancing your photos—including making photo corrections, retouching, compositing images, and adding text. 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.
Another place you can share your photos online from Elements is the popular photo sharing site Flickr. The process of uploading from Elements to Flickr is similar to the elements to Facebook workflow that I showed you in the last movie. I'll start by selecting one or more JPEG photos in the Organizer or I could use photos that are open for editing in the editor. Then over in the column on the right, I'll click to Share tab and I'll choose Share to Flickr. I have to authorized elements to share my photos with Flickr by clicking the Authorize button in this window that launches my web browser and takes me to Flickr and down here again I'll click that I'll Authorize elements sharing my photos with Flickr.
This message tells me that I've been successful and I can go ahead and close this window, so I'll do that and that takes me back to Elements where I'll complete the authorization between Elements and Flickr by clicking this button. That opens this window where I'll prepared Upload to flickr the photo that I selected earlier in the Organizer. That Photoshop was shot as a RAW file, but because I knew I wanted to uploaded to Flickr I had to save it out in the JPEG format and that's something you have to do before starting the upload process to Flickr or Facebook or other online social media or photo sharing sites.
If I wanted I could upload this photo into a set, either an existing set on my Flickr account or I could create a new set, I'm just going to upload the photo. And here I can set the privacy settings, defining exactly who can see this photo on Flickr, so I'll say Visible to Friends. In this box I can type some tags or keyword tags that can be used to find this photo. So I'll type a comma after Elements_Organizer and I'll type flower, and then I click Upload.
Now I want to go to my Flickr account so I can see the photo there. So, I'll click Visit Flickr in this window and that opens my web browser again, takes me to my photo stream and there is a photo that I uploaded to Flickr directly from Elements. So this is another example of the power of integration between Elements and social media and photo sharing sites.
