Elements comes with a special workspace where you can create photo books, photo…greeting cards, photo calendars and more.…Let's take a look at how to make a photo greeting card.…The steps for making a card are similar to those for making a photo book or a…photo calendar, so we'll use this as a simple example.…You could start the process of creating a photo project either here in the…Organizer by selecting photos as I'm going to do now or in the Editor.…Both the Organizer and the Editor have a Create menu.…
Sometimes if I'm making a big project that's going to contain a lot of photos…like a photo book I'll first gather all the photos into an album and I'll have…access to that album in the workspace where I'll be creating my project as…you'll see in a minute.…But I'm just going to go with these three photos this time and with those…selected I'll go over to Create menu and choose Greeting Card.…That switches me over to the editor and opens this special workspace, the…Greeting Card workspace.…
