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 way to view the photos in an Organizer catalog is by the date on which the photos were taken or the date on which other media files were captured and that can be done in Date View. I am going to switch to Date View by going up to the Display menu in the Organizer and choosing Date View. This shows me a monthly calendar and each day in a particular month on which I took a photo or capture another kind of media file, I see a thumbnail of one of the files that I captured on that day. If I move my mouse over that day and wait for a minute, I get a tooltip that tells me how many photos I took on that particular day.
I can move between months by clicking the Forward arrow at the top of the Calendar or the Backward arrow or I can go to a particular month by clicking on the Month and here I see a list of all the months in which I took photos that are in this catalog. Each of those months has one of these little flower icons to the left. So if I want to see all of the photos that I took in August of 2010, I will click on August here and that changes the calendar to August of this year. If I want to see August of a different year, I can click on the year at the top of the calendar and choose from among these years marked with an icon in which I took photos that are in this catalog.
I will leave that at 2010 for now. Now, if I do hover over one of the days that has a photo on it and I see that it has more than one photo, I can view all of the photos by clicking on that day and that loads this column on the right with the photos that I took on that day. I can cycle through those photos by clicking the Forward arrow or the Backward arrow or I can start a little slideshow play by clicking the Play button here. I can stop that by clicking the Pause button.
Here is a place for daily notes. Sometimes I'll use this to note the lighting conditions when I was shooting that day, so I might say bright sunlight, backlit photos. There is also an icon here that allows me to add an event to a day. So if I click on that icon, I get a dialog box where I can name whatever event happened that day. This was a day of the Summer party, it's not a Repeating Event and if I click OK that event is noted here on this particular day on the calendar.
There are a couple of other calendar views. If I want, I can look at the calendar by Year. Each one of these blue squares represents a day on which I took photographs and if I click on one of those squares over here, I see a small view of the photographs that I took on that day. I also can look at a Daily View which shows me a larger version of the photos taken on a particular day. If I've taken more than one photo on this day, I could cycle through those here in this larger view. If I want to exit the Date View to go back to the regular Media Browser view, I can click the Media Browser button here and if I want to see where in my catalog this particular file is located, I can click the Binoculars here and that takes me back to my Folder Location view, showing me where that photo is in my folder system.
So Date View is very flexible. It provides lots of options for reviewing your shooting history, or finding particular photos by the date they were captured.
