Adobe offers an online service located on the web at Photoshop.com to complement its elements desktop software. When you sign up for a free Adobe ID, you get a personal URL at photoshop.com and 2 gigabytes of storage where you can share albums of the photos that you create in Elements online, as I'll show you how to do in this chapter. And then you can determine who can view your album online, and exactly what it's going to look like your viewers.
To get access to the online service at Photoshop.com, you must have an Adobe ID. You can sign up for an Adobe ID from several places inside of Elements. There's a link on the welcome screen there is a link at the top of the Editor and there's a link up here at the top of the organizer for creating a new Adobe ID. I'll click that to open this dialog box. Here you'll enter some personal information in these fields, and then you go over to personal URL field and just use a username and enter it in this space and that username will become part of the URL for your gallery at Photoshop.com.
For example, my URL is janauthor.photoshop.com. I already have an Adobe ID, so I'm not going to click Create Account down here as you will; I'm going to click Cancel. When you're using Elements and you want to take advantage of its coordination with Photoshop.com, sign in with your Adobe ID and you can do that from several places in Elements too, from the welcome screen, from the top of the editor or from the top of the organizer where you'll find this Sign In link. I'll click their and I'll sign in here with my Username and Password.
The Username is the email that I used when I created my Adobe ID and I'll click Sign In and I'll click OK. If you're ever wondering whether you signed in or not take a look at the top of the Organizer and if it says Welcome and your name then you know that you're signed in. Now that you have an Adobe ID, you can upload existing albums that you made already made for storage and display on photoshop.com or you can make a new album and uploaded at the same time which is what I'm going to do next.
