The Organizer can keep track of your photos no matter where you store them,…whether that's on your computer, or on external media, like an external drive or a DVD.…To do that, the Organizer uses databases, which are called catalogs in Elements.…In this movie, I'll explain the catalog system, and I'll show you how to make a…new catalog for the exercise files or your own practice files that you'll use…as you work with me through this course.…An Organizer catalog contains a record of each photo that you include in the Organizer.…
It's important to understand that that record is not the actual photo.
