The most direct way to get photos out of your digital camera and into Elements…Organizer is to use the Photo Downloader that comes with Elements, along with…your camera or memory card reader.…When you plug your camera or your card reader into your computer, you may see…an autoplay alert like this on Windows, or maybe an application like iPhoto on a Mac.…For simplicity's sake, I suggest you close all of that, and then go into the Organizer.…When you're bringing photos into your Organizer, you'll probably be in the…default display, the Thumbnail View, so I'm going to switch over to that.…
To get photos off my memory card, I'll go to the File menu here in the…Organizer, I'll choose Get Photos and Videos, and I'll slide over to From…Camera or Card Reader.…That opens the Organizer's Photo Downloader to this view; the Standard View.…This is the view that I will use when I want to bring in all of the photos…from a memory card.…It has just a few fields to go through.…But if I want to bring in just some photos from my card, then I'll go down here…
Next, Jan addresses Elements’ Quick Photo Edit and Guided Photo Edit workspaces, which streamline and simplify many common photo-editing tasks. She then introduces the basics of editing in the Full Photo Edit workspace, which provides tools for selecting portions of images, retouching, compositing images, adding text, and more.
The course wraps up with an overview of Elements 10's sharing features, including creating greeting cards, printing and emailing photos, and sharing photos on Facebook.
