Elements is two programs rolled into one.…There is an Organizer for managing your photos and video clips and the Editor …for correcting and enhancing your photos.…Each of these two main components has multiple workspaces for…performing different tasks.…In this movie I'll introduce those workspaces and show you how to move from one to the other.…I started by launching Elements here in Windows by clicking the shortcut key on…my desktop and that opened this screen called the Welcome Screen.…If you're on a Mac go to your Applications folder to your Adobe Photoshop…Elements 11 folder, and there click on the shortcut for Adobe Photoshop Elements 11.…
You may want to put that icon in your dock for quicker access later.…The main purpose of the Welcome Screen is to give you quick access to either the…Organizer or the Editor.…If you'd rather not see the welcome screen when you first launch the program,…you can click this gear icon and here change the On Start Always Launch menu…from Welcome Screen to either Organizer or Photo Editor.…
The course begins with a look at how to import your photos into Elements, and then dives right into editing photos with the Photo Fix, Quick Edit, and Guided Edit workspaces. Jan also introduces the Expert Edit workspace, which provides tools for making selections, retouching, compositing, adding text, and more. Finally, the course reviews the Elements 11 sharing features, including crafting photo creations like greeting cards, emailing photos, and sharing photos on Facebook.
