I have created a shared album, marked the option to allow for the viewer to download the pictures, but on the slideshow screen on Photoshop.com there is not a button to select to allow for the download of the photo. I want to give these instructions to my intended recipients.
Thank you very much for your assistance!
Use the option "Also Share on Photoshop.com" to make your albums show up on your Gallery page.
Log on to Photoshop.com where you can change Album Permissions to “Shared” That will enable others people to access the Album if they have the URL. You could also check your settings in the on-line Organizer. Go to the album and in the left pane click on the settings "gear" icon. Then open the album properties dialog. Make sure that the options "allow viewers to print" and "allow viewers to save" are both checked. It can be a little confusing as there are the over arching settings of “private” and “public” and other sharing methods such as friends lists and group albums; so explore all the options.

Thank you for the post -- I had marked the photos to post on Photoshop.com, but did not mark to appear on my Gallery page. Why are these separate options? Anyway, marking the Gallery option gave me the link that I manually copied and put into an email message after truncating the word slide show. When I follow that link, then each picture appears on the Photoshop gallery page and when you select a picture, an icon appears below the picture to download.
More to learn, but I greatly appreciate your help!
There are different security/sharing options for Albums on Photoshop.com:
Private: Only you, or someone logged into your account, can view them
Shared: Anyone who has the URL can view the files.
-Also Share on Photoshop.com: This will place your images in your Gallery.
The difference between Shared and "Share on PS.com" is: Shared means you can send your friends a link and only they can see them, Share on PS.com means than even strangers can view your images if they visit your gallery page.
The reason for having this separation is that there are perfessionals that may want to have a client view a certain album, but not others, who are visiting the gallery to see the full, public facing, portfolio.
You were very helpful back in June when I had a sharing issue with an "Album" that I created within Photoshop. Using your explanation and suggestions, I have been able to post and share numerous albums with my children. Today, I created a new album, changed the order of the prints included, but the title image (the photo attached to the Photoshop generated email that allows the recipient to view their album) is not the image I want attached. How do I change this? Second question: The order of the images within the Photoshop online album is not the same as the order of the album on my local copy stored on my hard drive. Why? How do I get these two files to sync?
Thank you for your help! I have changed your response status to Resolved and Helpful. I look forward to your response!
Tom, when you create an Album, Photoshop.com chooses an images as the "Album Cover" (usually, this is the first file that was uploaded and/or added to this album). To change the Album Cover, and thus which image appears when sharing the album, in the Adobe Photoshop Express Organizer (so online), open the album in question and hover your mouse over the thumbnail of the image you want as the Album Cover. After a second, you should see "Photo Options" (may be shortened to "Options" on portrait images). Click on this and you will get a menu of options. About three-quarters of the way down the list you will see "Use as Alubm Cover", select this.
The custom order you have set in your album in Photoshop Elements Organizer should be reflected in Adobe Photoshop Express Organizer. But they can also have their order set individually. Online, with the Express Organizer, when you are viewing an Album, at the top you have three drop-down menus. The middle one is the Sort order. If you created a custom order in Elements Organizer (by rearraning the images while in the Album view), you should have an additional choice in the Sort drop-down called "Sort by (Custom Order)". You have similar options in Elements Organizer for the sort order, there is a drop-down menu in the upper right (just above the Ratings filter). There is a choice on this list called Album Order. Album Order in Elements Organizer is the same as Custom Order in Express Organizer.
