Photoshop Elements 15 Folder View


In this tutorial we will cover the Folder View in PSE 15’s Organizer. This view can be extremely helpful if you want to do some disk storage housekeeping. Viewing the folder layout in this view and then reordering the files and folders can be done without risking the common mistake of disconnecting your images within your catalog. This is because you are working from within the Organizer and not an external program, such as Windows Explorer.

Also, those of you who have organized your file structure relying on folder names, will find this view to be very familar.

Where to Find Me

Summer has begun for me. I have just finished teaching my last digital photography class of the spring term for the Torrance Adult School. The only class I will be teaching in the fall is “Photoshop CC on Your Laptop”

I am going to use this time to become much more active in this blog. I am going to be spending the summer upgrading and adding significantly more content to this blog, website, and my social media pages.

Many of you are on my email distribution list. I do not send out many emails, and they basically only deal with my upcoming teaching schedule. Their frequency will probably not change, but I will their content with time.

If you want to follow me and view the written, and video tutorials that I have already published, and those that I will be adding moving forward, there are several ways to do that. Here are several ways to follow what I will be posting:

Email Distribution List – Not very often, since it requires heavy maintenance on my part. If you are not on it now, feel free to email me requesting to be added. And by all means, you can use email to ask me any digital photography, iPad/iPhone questions you have, and I will promptly reply.

My Photoshop Elements eBook – Now for my commercial. I have written three eBooks that cover only the Organizer of Photoshop Elements. My latest one covers Photoshop Elements 14. They are all available on Amazon. Here is the link to my latest one. I suspect I will write additional eBooks in the future.

PSE 14 eBook

https://www.amazon.com/Photoshop-Elements-14-Organizer-Revisited-ebook/dp/B016WURRMK?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Well there you have it.

As you know most of my posts and videos have dealt with Photoshop Elements. I will continue covering that program, but will add more and more content covering Lightroom CC, Photoshop CC, as well as material on iPads/iPhones. Related subjects, such I my use and experiences with my DJI Phantom 2+ drone will also be added.

My overall goal is to pass on what I learn as I practice my hobby making the content more understandable and easier to follow than its original presentation may have been. Also, suspect I follow these technologies more closely than you have the time to do. These two provide the value I add to a information available online.

Using the Folder View in Photoshop Elements


Using the Folder View in Photoshop Elements can really help you manage the physical locations where you store your pictures and videos. Using the commands within the Folder View, you can do disk housekeeping without leaving the Organizer. This helps you avoid breaking the Cardinal Rules for using the Organizer: Once the you have imported a picture into the Catalog, you must not move it, rename it, or delete it, unless you do it using the applicable command within the Organizer. Otherwise you will disconnect it in the Organizer.

Using the Folder View expands upon those commands you find under the Menu bar. The video below demonstrates its use.

How to do a Full Backup in Photoshop Elements 14


In watching the video in my previous post, I was struck by just how poor the video quality was. However, it still has some value, since it covers the Restore command as well.

I decided to redo the video using the Backup command in Photoshop Elements 14. To keep the length of the video down, I only demonstrate the Backup command. I will address the Restore command in a future video.

 

No Better Time to Upgrade to Photoshop Elements 14


There is no better time to upgrade to Adobe’s Photoshop Elements 14 (PSE 14) than now!

Between now and November 29th, Costco will have the program on sale for $39.95. You will never see a lower price. Normally a good deal is about $80 for the program.

pse 14 welcome

If you are brand new to the world of digital photography, this best selling program is one of the easiest ways to get started. Beginning with uploading your images or videos from your digital camera or mobile device through enhancing them , and ultimately sharing them with others,  PSE 14 provides a user friendly solution. At the same time, the program provides sufficient tools and commands, similar to its its more powerful sibling, Photoshop CC, to give your photos that professional look.

If you are using an older version of PSE (PSE 10 or older) it is definitely time to upgrade to PSE 14. When you do, you will see a much friendlier user interface in both the Organizer and the Editor.

If you are familiar with Photoshop Elements, you know it consists of two main modules, the Organizer and the Photo Editor. You are probably also aware that there are many books available to help you learn how to effectively use the program. But I have found that these books focus on the Photo Editor module. How to use the Organizer to manage your images and videos effectively is given much less coverage.

To fill this gap, I have published an inexpensive yet a detailed eBook that addresses only the Organizer. This ebook includes material that is normally not found in other books. The PSE 14 version of this book is titled Photoshop Elements 14: The Organizer Revisited Again. It is available on Amazon. Click on the title link above to find out more about my eBook.

And by the way, PSE 14 works on both the PC and the Mac.
