Downloading and importing your photos into the Organizer catalog is the first step in organizing your photos. That's when the fun really begins: You sort through your images and choose which ones you want to edit and share with the world. However, before you begin spending quality time with your photos, you need to have a clear understanding of the Organizer and how to set up preferences to suit your needs. This chapter details everything you need to know about the Organizer and how to get it ready to use.
When you begin using any software, it's always a good idea to go through the preferences. This allows you to not only get them set up properly so that you start off on the right foot, you also get an overview of where each preference is located. Even if you don't completely understand what all the preferences are used for just yet, you'll know where to find them when the time comes to modify them.
