Digital photography can be a bit of a double-edged sword. Ironically, its greatest advantage to the amateur photographerthe ability to quickly and easily capture a large number of images, and then instantly download them to a computercan also be its greatest source of frustration. Once hundreds of images have been downloaded, photographers find themselves faced with the daunting task of sorting through myriad files, with incomprehensible filenames, to find those dozen or so "keepers" to assemble into an album or post to the Web for friends.
Photoshop Elements' Organizer workspace comes to the rescue with a relatively simple and wonderfully visual set of tools and functions to help you locate, identify, and organize your photos. And since the Organizer is designed to work hand in hand with the Creations workspace, categories and collections of images that you assemble in the Organizer can be imported directly into Creations projects like slide shows, calendars, and Web photo galleries.
