Chapter 2. Managing Your Files > Setting Up Your Catalog

Setting Up Your Catalog

When you use the Organizer, you only have to deal with filenames and locations once, if at all: when you first import them into your catalog. After a photo is imported, the catalog remembers the photo file's location; so you only have to choose its thumbnail and Elements will find the file.

Note

The Organizer uses the term get, as in Get Photos. I use import instead because it seems less awkward. Both terms mean to add an entry to a catalog. When photos are imported into the Organizer, the photo itself is not imported; it remains in the file system, with the catalog including a pointer to it.
