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.
Another useful way to find particular photographs in your Organizer catalog is by date, using the Timeline. The Timeline works best in Thumbnail View, so if you're still in Folder Location view, switch over to Thumbnail View by going up to the Display menu and choosing Thumbnail View. Here in Thumbnail View, I'm going to open the Timeline by going to the Window menu at the top of the screen and choosing Timeline. The Timeline is here at the top of the Organizer, it's basically a bar chart that runs from the earliest year in which I took photos and captured other media files that are in this catalog to the latest year.
These vertical bars represent particular months in those years. So if I were to click on this vertical bar right here, I would see all of the photos that I took in the month October in the year 2009. The first of those photos flashes in green for a moment and then if I move to the right I can see other photos taken in October of 2009. If I go all the way back here, I see a really short bar, and that means that I didn't take many photos that month, August of 2006. I'll click on that bar and you can see down here the single photo highlighted in green that I took in August 2006.
And that green highlight disappears after a moment. Now what if I want to see all of the photos that I took and other media files that I captured in a particular year, say the year 2009? Then I'll use these sliders over here. Dragging the sliders on the left to the beginning of that date range, say here, to January of 2009 and the slider is on the right to the end of that date range and there are the photos that I took in year 2009. So if you tend to think of your photos by the year or the month in which they were taken then give the Timeline a try, as a way to find particular photos that you're looking for.
