Cataloging Your Photos in the Organizer

Before you can access any of the Organizer's exciting features, you have to get your existing photos into an Organizer catalog. This is an easy process–just tell Organizer where the image files are located, and Elements takes it from there.

From the Organizer's Get Photos pop-up menu, choose From Files and Folders, or press Ctrl+Shift+G.

Navigate to the folder that contains your pictures, and click its thumbnail or filename.

Click the Get Photos button.

Click OK. The photos in the folder are loaded into your catalog.

NOTE

Where Do Photos Come From?

The Organizer is also the route that photos take on their way from your digital camera into your computer. Turn to “Getting Photos into Your Computer” in Part 2 to learn more.


TIP

Another Way of Looking at Things

Click the Date View button in the toolbar to see the photos you took each day in a month or a year. Click Next Item on Selected Day to scroll through the photos for a day.


Click the Tags tab to view the list of available tags.

Drag a tag to a photo to apply it to that image.

Click the box next to a tag name to search for all images with that tag.
