Saving Your Digital Negatives

I know you want to get right to organizing and editing your photos, but before we get to those “fun parts,” there are a couple critically important things you’ll need to do first—before you even actually open Photoshop Elements 3. They’ll take a minute or two, but if you don’t do them, you’ll be sorry down the road.

Step One

Plug your card reader (CompactFlash card, Smartcard, etc.) into your computer and the Adobe Photo Downloader will appear. By default, all of your photos are marked to be imported into your computer (that’s why you’ll see a little checkbox marked beneath each photo). If there are photos you don’t want imported, just uncheck the little box beneath the photos you don’t want. If you want to choose a location (folder) on your hard disk in which to save these photos, click the Browse button, choose the location where you’d like these photos saved, and then click the Get Photos button at the bottom-right corner of the Adobe Photo Downloader. When you click that button, a progress dialog will appear showing that the photos are being copied to your hard disk.
