In Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac Essential Training, Ted LoCascio teaches casual photographers how to organize, edit, and share their digital image libraries using this powerful software package from Adobe. He tours the included Adobe Bridge application, used for importing and organizing photographs, and explores every feature of Elements itself. He demonstrates how to navigate the Elements workspace, which is used to correct and improve images, combine them into projects, and produce slideshows, photo books, web galleries, and more. Ted also explains how to get the most out of each editing mode, and shares tips for correcting, retouching, and sharpening photographs. Example files accompany the course.
Before we jump in and start learning how to organize, edit and share images using Elements 6, I would like to show you how to work with the exercise files that accompany the training. If you have a premium membership to lynda.com or if you have purchased the DVD, then you have access to the exercise files. This allows you to work with the same images that I'm working with and follow along with my movements on screen. Now, if you're a monthly or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can easily follow along using your own photographs. You can download the exercise files from the lynda.com website or copy the files from the DVD and save them to your desktop.
Inside the exercise files folder are 19 additional folders. 18 of them are labeled according to chapter and one is labeled catalog images. The bulk of the images that we will be working with are contained within the master catalog images folder. Any additional images that we will be working with are contained within the individual chapter folders. Note that some of the movies do not require exercise files. Throughout the movies of this training title, we will be accessing the exercise files using the Adobe Bridge application, like you're seeing here, not the Finder in OS X.
Okay, now that we know what images we're working with, let's move on and start learning how to use Elements 6.
