I have just started using Elements 11

Tags: #editor #elements_11

and have this most elementary question.

I have successfully edited a number of RAW images in Expert Mode cannot find where to click to show that I have finished editing.

The result is that I have a lot of images displaying a red band  with a lock symbol showing that editing is still in progress and don't know how to let the system know that editing is complete.

Surely, it must be obvious but I have tried everything I can think of.


Please help !

    Usually if you just close the images in the pse 11 editor after saving, the editing in progress in the organizer should return to just showing the thumbnails.

    File >> Save As


    Then create a PSD copy.


    If you are using more than the healing brush e.g. adding text or using adjustment layers; your layers will be saved for future editing.


    PSD is also a lossless format. You can treat it as your master copy containg the combined adjustments made with the raw sliders and any further adjustments made in expert mode. You can use the master to make a jpeg at any time. Simply open and do File >> Save As again. Or select a few PSD thumbnails in the Organizer and use File >> Export As New.
