My Elements 11 Workflow from Start to Finish

One of the questions I get asked the most is “What is your suggested digital workflow?” (Which actually means, “What order are you supposed to do all this in?” That’s all “digital workflow” means.) We wrote this book in kind of a digital workflow order, starting with importing and organizing your photos, correcting them, sharpening them, and then at the end, printing. But I thought that seeing it all laid out in one place (well, in these 10 pages), might be really helpful, so here ya go.

Step One:

You start your workflow by importing your photos into the Organizer (we learned this in Chapter 1). While you’re in the Photo Downloader (shown here), I recommend adding your metadata (your name and copyright info) during this import process. Also, while you’re in the Photo Downloader, go ahead and rename your photos now, so if you ever have to search for them, you have a hope of finding them (searching for photos from your trip to Hawaii is pretty tough if you leave the files named the way your camera named them, which is something along the lines of “DSC_1751.JPG”). So give them a descriptive name while you import them. You’ll thank me later.
