Navigating to Your Photos Using the File Browser

The File Browser is divided into four main palettes, if you will: one for navigating to your photos; one that displays thumbnail versions of your photos (once you find them); one that shows a larger preview of your currently selected thumbnail; and one that lets you see information about the currently selected photo. We’ll start with the navigation window (after all, if you can’t find your photos, the rest of the File Browser will look pretty, um…blank).

Accessing Your Photos

The left side of the File Browser is the palette area (although they’re palettes, they’re not “floating palettes” like most of the palettes in Elements, because they have to stay within the File Browser). The top-left palette (called Folders) is designed to give you direct access to photos on your digital camera’s memory card, photos on your hard drive,a CD of images, a network drive—you name it. The idea behind this is simple: It gives you access to your digital camera images without leaving Elements. To navigate to the photos inside a folder from the palette, just click once on the folder’s icon.
