Layout in PSE 11 (swedish)

Nov 13, 2012 7:15 AM

I recently upgraded from PSE9.

When I was working with three or more photos and wanted to compare two of them, side by side, it functioned.

When I want to do the same in PSE11 it does not. I want to compare the two car photos but all three are shown. (See dump)

What have I missed?121113 Layout i Redigeraren.jpg

    Use the menu:

     

    Window >> Images >> Float All in Window Windows

     

    You can then minimize the third pic (it will stay open in the photo bin) and use the layout button.

    You may first need to change your pref settings if the Window menu is grayed out.

     

    Go to Edit >> Preferences >> General

    Check the box “Allow Floating Documents in Full Edit Mode” and click OK

    Hi janf3208,

    In PSE11 in Expert mode, you will find Layout option in the lower botton panel, beside Organizer. Choose All Column in it.

    Thanks.

    Minimize the photo you don't need, to leave the other two showing.

    Just Allow Floating panels option in Preferences.

    Then in three column view, drag the header (where you see the title) of the image, which you don't want to see, near to the header of any other two images.

    Or simply use File >> Open

    Then select the two images only by holding down Ctrl and clicking on each one.

    Thats because you are working in tabs rather than floating documents. See my earlier reply.

    And follow that by window>images>float all in windows, or you won't see any change.

    Hi janf3208,

     

    Supposedly I am having 6 images opened. Then how do you choose the 2 images to compare in PSE9?

    This is something that I would do.

    1. First go to preferences and check "allow floating documents in the Expert mode" and "enable floating document window docking"
    2. Change my layout to "Default" so that all my images are stacked together
    3. Drag one of the photos I want to compare out of the stack
    4. Try docking the image to the left hand side of the document window, just at the right end of the tool bar
    5. Select the second image from the stack so that both my images to compare are visible side by side

    Note that if you are using the organizer, you can use the full screen view (F11). It has many options including zoom and side by side comparison. I do show the film strip and choose the 'view' icon. You can select side by side. By default it show contiguous files, but you can select two non contiguous pictures by Clrl clicking on the second picture in the filmstrip.

    The full screen view is generally ovelooked, but it is worth spending some time to discover its power.
