    I have just started using Elements 11

    Rotaryeclipse

      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.

            Many thanks to R Kelly whose advice has been valuable but I am still seeking a strategy that would allow me to incrementally improve my editing skills by returning  to RAW images that I have 'improved' partially  using, for example, the healing brush, to see if I can do better at a later date

            In such cases, what should be the best 'save as'  strategy for those cases where I would like to return and 'do better'?

              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.

                Dear 99jonWonderful-that response answers all the difficulties that I have struggled with. (Maybe the solution was considered too obvious to be in my copy of Nick Vandome's Elements 11 In Easy Steps!)
