Photoshop Elements 8 for Windows Essential Training highlights the important features of this comprehensive image organization and photo enhancement application. Photographer Jan Kabili shows how to use Photoshop Elements to organize and edit photos, build photos into projects like slideshows and photo books, and share photos with family and friends. Jan explains how to train Photoshop Elements 8 to recognize and tag faces, use the Smart Brush for targeted adjustments, and share photos using Adobe's online service, photoshop.com. She also dives deep into the application's editing tools, which rival those of the full product, Photoshop, in their ability to take snapshots and turn them into great photos. Exercise files accompany the course.
If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you've purchased a DVD of this course, you have access to the Exercise Files that I'll be using throughout the course. If you do have the Exercise Files, I suggest that you put the entire Exercise Files folder on your desktop, as I've done here. If you look inside the Exercise Files folder, and I'll do that by clicking on the Exercise Files folder here in this open window, you'll see that the Exercise Files are organized by chapter folders.
And inside the chapter folders are subfolders that correspond to each movie in that chapter. Inside each subfolder, you'll find the files that I used to work through that movie. In this course we usually won't be opening the Exercise Files directly from these Windows folders. Instead I recommend that you open the individual exercise files from inside of Elements, from the Elements workspace called the Organizer. The Organizer is a special area for viewing and managing photos in Elements and I'll be covering the Organizer in great detail in this course.
In the first two movies in the chapter titled Bringing in Photos, I'm going to show you how to create a separate catalog in the Organizer for the exercise files, and I'll show you had to bring the exercise files into the Organizer so you're ready to use them throughout the course. If you're a monthly or annual non- premium subscriber to the Online Training Library, unfortunately you don't have access to these particular exercise files, but you're welcome to use your own photos instead or just listen and follow along with me that way.
