When you're editing a photo in the Expert edit workspace, you will need to save…it to retain your edits.…That may seem obvious, but it's worth pointing out because saving is treated…differently in other workspaces in Elements.…For example, if you apply instant photo fixes in the Organizer, those edit are…saved automatically.…But here in Expert edit, you are responsible for saving.…So let's take a look at how to save and what the options are.…The first time that you save an image in an editing session, you will go up to…the File menu and your only choice will be Save As.…After that, you will have a choice between Save As and Save.…
If you choose File>Save, you will automatically save over the last version of the photo.…Sometimes that's what you want to do, but sometimes it's not.…So as insurance against saving over the last version accidentally, I suggest you…stick with File>Save As…every time you save, at least until you're more experienced with the program.…I'll choose File>Save As and that opens the Save As dialog box.…
