Photoshop Elements : Share
Don’t keep your images to yourself; let everyone see and enjoy them with Elements’ built-in Share options
We are living in a digital world, where sharing ideas, images, text and well, anything, is easily done via the web. Photoshop Elements has obviously been following this trend and has incorporated the sharing options into the main interface.
There are the classic option here, such as sending images via email to friends and relatives. However, there are some more modern integrations, such as direct upload to Facebook and Flickr. Photoshop Elements will prepare your images for upload and then post them to your account.

The engine that Elements uses is faster than the one on Facebook, for example, as it does the compression using your computer’s power so that when it uploads to Facebook it does so in a flash. There are other options here too, but we have focused on the ones that are the most popular.
Sharing images is great if you have family and friends spread around the country, or the world, as it lets them instantly see what you have been up to. Even better, if you have organized your images with the Organizer and tagged people in your pictures 9see page 26 for more on this), these tags are automatically added to Facebook – a real timesaver.
We’ll have a closer look at some of the built-in Share options over these two pages, but check out our full Output section, starting from page 232, where we have loads of vreative ideas for what you can do with your photos, and Photoshop artworks.

Tag your photos using the Elements Organizer, which even does a lot of the hard work for you by tagging familiar subjects for you, and these will be translated straight into Facebook – clever stuff!
Supported galleries here include Flickr and SmugMug. As long as you have an online account, then you can directly upload your photos to these sites from Elements.
This is a clever piece of technology. These are connected photo frames, to which images can be sent from anywhere. So, if you have frame or someone you know does, you can send images to it from Elements.
This is really a fancy email. You can embed your photos within a decorated template, with loads of customizable options to play with, that can then be sent out to your email contacs.
