Setting Up How You’ll View Your Photos

Before you start sorting your photos, it helps to get a handle on how to view your images in the File Browser. In Elements 3 you have a decent amount of control over how this is done, so here I’m basically going to show you what your options are, then show you how to set up the File Browser to display photos in a way that’s most comfortable for you.

Working in the Main Thumbnail Window

The main window displays the thumbnail views of your photos. If you click on a thumbnail within this window, the photo highlights to let you know it’s selected, and a preview of the photo is displayed in the Preview palette to its left. If you want to open the full-size image in Elements, just double-click on the thumbnail in the main window. (Note: You can also double-click on the Preview palette’s thumbnail to open the photo.)
