Although there are lots of sophisticated ways to arrange and organize your…photos in the Organizer, Adobe recognizes that many people are still going to…fall back on the folders on their hard drive as a way of thinking about where…their files are located.…And so in Elements 11, Adobe improved the view of folders here in the Organizer.…The folder view is now in the face of the Organizer here in the My…Folders panel, which you can expand and contract using the arrow to the…left of My Folders.…There are two views of My Folders, the default view is this flat view.…
In flat view, you see in this list only folders that contain photos that you…have already brought into this catalog.…Obviously, I have other folders on my computer, but the only ones that appear…here are those that contain photos that are in this Exercise files catalog.…And as you have seen throughout the course clicking on a folder here displays…its contents over here in the grid area of the Organizer.…The other way to view My Folders is with a more full hierarchy of folders on my computer.…
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.
