The most full-featured editing workspace in element is called the Expert Edit workspace.…Now I think that's a rather unfortunate name because you do not have to be an…expert in order to work in that workspace.…In this chapter I'll guide you through using the Expert Edit workspace to…enhance and correct your photos.…You can open one or more images into that workspace either from the Organizer or…directly from the Editor.…Here in the Organizer I'll select a couple of photos and then I'll click the Editor…button in the Task Pane of the Organizer, that opens the Editor.…
Mine opened to the Guided Edit workspace because that's where I was last working here.…To move these two open photos into the Expert Edit workspace I'll click the…Expert button at the top of the Editor.…Adobe has packed lots of features into this Expert Edit workspace, but it's…trying to simplify the layout and make all the features as discoverable as…possible using bright big icons like the ones you see down here and a…well-thought-out interface.…
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.

Finally, the course reviews the Elements 11 sharing features, including crafting photo creations like greeting cards, emailing photos, and sharing photos on Facebook.
