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.
The Organizer offers you one other view of your photos in your catalogue and that's Date view. Date view helps you to find photos by date, let's switch to Date view by going to the Display menu at the top of the screen and choosing Date view. Date view offers a monthly, yearly and daily calendar. This is the monthly view. For everyday that there are photos that I took in this month, that are in this catalogue there is a thumbnail on this monthly calendar and if I want to see the photos from a particular day, I just go and select the day like this and I'll see over in the right column a mini slideshow of those photos.
So I'll just click the Play button here and the photos will cycle through for me. I also could use the Next button and the Previous button to manually cycle through these photos. Let me click the Stop button there and I'll show you something else here that you can add Daily Notes or events to any day on the calendar. The Daily Notes are useful for making notes about shooting conditions on a particular day. So I might just click in this area and type overcast lighting conditions and if there was a particular event on that day that I want to remember I'll click this icon and type in the name of the event. This was moving day and we will say, OK and then the event appears here on the calendar. If I want to act on a particular photo that's showing in the right column, I can just right-click the photo and I get a full menu of choices.
For example, I could apply an Auto Smart Fix or an Auto Red Eye Fix, both of which I have talked about in other movies in this course and then I'll just click off that menu to dismiss it. If I want to view other months, I can do that by clicking the arrows to the right or to the left of the current date, or I can click right on the name of the month and I can see a list of all of the months in this year when I took photos, February, May, June. I could click on any one of those to see the photos from that month. I go back to July by clicking the left arrow to show you that I can also switch years the same way. So I'm going to click on 2008 and now I can see all of the years in which I took photos and included them in this catalogue in the month of July.
At the bottom of the calendar, I can flip to a yearly view and here every date on which I took photos that are included in this calendar is highlighted in color. I also have a Day view. I'll go back to the Month view to show you one more feature. Let's say, that I wanted to find this particular photo in the Organizer. To do that I can click the binocular icon, and Elements takes me right back to the Photo Browser view of the Organizer with that particular photo highlighted. So consider using Date view when you are trying to find particular photos by date, or when you just want to see your shooting history.
