Whether you're using the official exercise files for this course or some of your…own photos to follow along with me-- which is perfectly okay--this movie will…explain how to import those files into an Elements catalog and how to access…them during the course.…First, put the exercise files--or your own practice files--on your desktop for easy access.…Next, make sure you've created a new catalog for these course files.…I walked you through how to do that using the File > Manage Catalogs command in the last movie.…You know, I usually recommend that Elements users stick with one catalog, but…having a second separate catalog for just the course files will keep your…personal catalog clean and make it easier to access the course files.…
So here's my new empty Ex Files catalog.…To import the exercise files I'll click the Import button here and I'll choose…From Files and Folders.…I'll navigate to my Desktop and there is the exercise files folder that I put there.…I'll select that folder.…Then I'll come down to the options.…
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.
