This movie is for Mac users who are making the switch from using Apple's iPhoto…to using Adobe's Elements.…If you've already brought photos into iPhoto, here's how to import those…photos into Elements.…I'm using the current version of iPhoto which is iPhoto 11.…If you're using the older iPhoto 9, the process may be slightly different…than what you see here.…In Apple's iPhoto, I've clicked on photos in the column on the left, so that you…can see the photos that I have in my iPhoto library;…a couple from Paris and some from Crested Butte, Colorado.…
You may have lots more;…this is just a small library.…I'm going to switch over to Elements Organizer to import these photos to Elements.…In Elements Organizer, I'll click the Import button, and I'll choose From iPhoto.…If you don't see this command, it's probably because you don't have photos in an…iPhoto library on your computer. …Elements quickly finds the photos that I had imported to iPhoto and brings them…into the Elements Organizer.…It may take a little longer if you've got a larger library than mine.…
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.
