Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing photos from your hard drive, part of Learning Photoshop Elements 12.
If you want to use the organizer to view, find, and organize your photos, you'll…need to use the import function to include those photos in your organizer catalog.…In this movie, I'll show you how to do that with photos that you…already have on your computer's internal drive, or maybe on an external hard drive.…In the next movie, I'll show you how to do the same…thing with new photos straight from your digital camera or card reader.…By the way, there are no exercise files for this movie.…I'm going to be using my personal files and you…can use your own practice files to follow along with me.…
Now before I import photos that are already on an internal or external…drive, I take the time to organize them into folders outside of Elements.…That way they'll be easier to manage here in the…organizer's My Folders panel after I've imported them into Elements.…Notice that in the My Folders panel I've…already imported into this catalogue the sub folder…of photos from Ansouis France, and the sub folder of photos from Lourmarin France.…
