Since the first of August, Facebook does not allow you to upload pictures directly from desktop photo editing programs such as Photoshop Elements. Photoshop Elements could previously upload photos to Facebook from its Organizer, by clicking on Share > Facebook, as illustrated in the figure below.
Since August 1st, when you do that, you are greeted with the error message below.
Clicking on Continue, the following message appears.
This change affects only desktop applications. Uploading photos and videos from smartphones and tablets are not affected by this new restriction.
Click on the link below to learn more about this change by Facebook. It is unclear whether Facebook will once again be available from Elements in the future.
So, for the foreseeable future, you will need to do it directly from Facebook, navigating to the physical location on your computer where the photo is located. My general approach is to export the photo to a special folder on my desktop, and then direct Facebook to that location. I clean out the folder periodically, since once the photo is uploaded, I no longer need a copy in this special folder.
Until next time...
On February 17, 2018, I posted an AppTip Sheet. The AppTip Sheet that I described there is no longer accurate. It refers to the website, http://360Facebook.com. This website has been replaced by, http://nadirpatcher.com. This new site performs a similar function as before, but also includes additional capabilities. Click on the figure below to link to the AppTip Sheet that describes how to use this website to post 360-degree panorama photos on Facebook.

I use Photoshop and Photoshop Elements pretty much daily. But I often can’t remember the exact steps to complete a certain edit or effect that I want to create. I don’t do it enough. I either have to go to my notes, a magazine article, or perhaps a previous blog post to fill in the blanks to fill in the blanks of my memory.
What I have been doing for awhile now is to prepare a cheat sheet that lays out the basic steps concisely. I think that these cheat sheets may come in handy for others as well.
That is where the AppTip Sheets come in. They are kept as short as possible, and assume the reader knows how to use the subject program. They just need a little help in putting steps together. Another possible scenario is to provide a top level view of the various screens for a new app on a smartphone or tablet. These cheat sheets help me a lot. Maybe they will you, as well.
So, in this post, I have included an AppTip Sheet for removing a colorcast in a photo. The screens are for Photoshop Elements 2018, but older versions of Elements work equally as well.
Let me know what you think of this type of format. I plan to post others shortly. If you have an idea for a certain topic or program, let me know that as well.
Until next time…
In the post, I have covered the general process of using the RAW image editor in Photoshop Elements 2018, the ACR.
We have one more topic to cover before getting to the fun part of editing your images, and that is a quick review of the screen layout, and Preferences.
