(whooshing) - [Voiceover] Welcome to Photoshop Elements 9: Essential Training. I'm Jan Kabili, your instructor for this course. I'm looking forward to showing you Windows and Mac users the exciting photo-editing and organizing features in Photoshop Elements 9. In the first part of this course, I'll show you how to use the Elements organizer to manage your photos. I'll explain how to apply keyword tags and use them to find a particular photo. I'll cover how to arrange your photos into albums, and how to create smart albums that automatically update as you add photos to the organizer.

In the next part of the course, we'll explore approaches to photo-editing in Elements. I'll cover the automatic photo-fix options in the organizer, and then the quick-fix workspace in the editor, that offers simple ways to customize photo corrections. I'll also show you the step-by-step guided edits. Then we'll move on to the full edit workspace, where I'll show you how to correct and manipulate photos using layers, the new layer masks, selections, and many more exciting features.

As a photographer myself, I'm really impressed to see that all Elements 9 has to offer. So let's get started exploring Photoshop Elements 9.
