Albums offer yet another way to group and find your photos in the Organizer.…An album is a virtual collection of photos that can be located anywhere in your catalog.…They could be in different folders, or even on different drives.…Adding photos to an album doesn't move them;…it just creates a link to them in whatever diverse places they are located, so…that you can quickly see a group of photos together at any time, without moving…them from their original folders.…To make a new album, I am going to scroll up in the column on the left side of…Media view in the Organizer to find the Albums panel.…
I will click the green plus sign to the right of albums, and I'll choose New Album.…That opens the Add New Album panel in the column on the right.…The album that I'm making is going to contain some photos of abstracts for a…photo book that I'm planning, so I'll type the name abstract photo book.…I'll leave the Category set to the default, which is None.…If I had already created a category, I could designate it from this dropdown.…
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.
