Easy Organization for Digital Photos and Digital Scrapbook Elements

by Tiffany Tillman

 

Use image-organization software like the Organizer included in Adobe Photoshop Elements to categorize your digital photos and digital scrapbook elements. This will allow you to find the files you're looking for quickly so you can spend less time hunting for images and more time scrapbooking!

 

Watch a free video tutorial from Adobe TV to learn how to use the Organizer included in Photoshop Elements 7. Choose episode: Getting Started 04: Tour the Organizer Interface to learn how to:

  • Create albums to organize images.
  • Add searchable, subject-matter key words.
  • Access the properties panel for images, which includes the metadata, keywords, and a history of actions taken on a given image.

 

For more information on organizing with Albums in the Organizer, choose episode: Creating and Using Albums.

 

If you're a Mac user or if you have CS4, you'll use Adobe Bridge to organize your image files. Watch a free video tutorial by Tiffany Tillman to learn more about using Bridge's keyword system, including how to tag photos or groups of photos with keywords.

 

 

Remember that in addition to organizing your photos, you can also use the Organizer or Bridge to organize your digital scrapbook elements by tagging them with keywords.
