Appendix A. The Organizer, Menu by Menu

This appendix gives you a quick tour of the main menus in the Organizer. The Organizer has two main windows: Photo Browser and Date View. Both offer the same menu choices—everything listed here is available in either window. There are keyboard shortcuts and buttons in the Organizer windows that give you access to many of these menu items. When there's an alternate method, it's listed in the text.

In addition to the main menus discussed here, the Organizer is chock full of contextual menus. You can right-click almost anywhere in the Organizer, and you'll get a menu with several options specific to the object you clicked. Click a tag, for instance, and you get a menu that includes choices for editing the tag or changing it to a category.

Note

If you also have Premiere Elements or Photoshop installed, you'll see a few additional menu choices not listed here.

File Menu

This menu is where you import photos, start new projects, manage your catalogs, and export your photos. It's also where you quit the Organizer when you're done.
