By now you have probably accumulated quite a collection of digital images and are more than ready to start organizing them using the Photoshop Elements' Organizer. With the Organizer, you can quickly categorize your images and easily locate them later. At the heart of the Organizer is its catalog—in the catalog, you can organize all your images, regardless of their location, into whatever categories you choose. For example, if you want to organize all the photos of your son into a single grouping, you can do so even if those photos are stored in various locations on the hard disk and on several CDs or DVDs. To keep the Organizer running smoothly, you must keep its catalog in order, so in this chapter you'll learn not only how to add images to the catalog, but also to remove them when needed, to update the catalog when an image's location has changed, and to back up the catalog periodically (a process that backs up the catalog information and the media files it contains). Finally, you'll learn how to back up the images themselves onto CD-ROM or DVD—something you might do to easily share images or take them to a kiosk (such as Kodak Picture Maker) for printing.
