It’s Decision Time: File Browser or Organizer?

Back in Photoshop Elements 2 (and in the Macintosh version of Elements 3), your only method of importing and organizing photos was the File Browser. A new-and-improved File Browser exists in Elements 3, but there’s actually something better—the Organizer. It’s an updated version of what previously was a standalone product that Adobe sold separately as Photoshop Album 2. Since they’re both built in, which should you use—the updated File Browser or the new Organizer? Here’s how to determine which one’s right for you.

The Organizer

The Organizer does double duty—it works wonderfully well with photos you’ve just taken with your digital camera, but its forte is cataloging all your digital camera photos and keeping them one or two clicks away at any time. It was designed for creating a giant (yet very fast) database of all your photos taken through the years; it excels at tracking and organizing your photos; and (perhaps most importantly) it’s designed to help you find the photos you’re looking for fast.
