Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0 : Using tags to organize your photos

This Photoshop tutorial covers the details of Using tags to organize your photos.

1. Bring your photos into Photoshop Album.
Click the Get Photos button, and then choose Digital Camera or Scanner. If your pictures are on your computer, choose From Files and Folders. (See Photoshop Album Help if you need more information.)
In our case, we’ve imported photos we took using a digital camera at our grandmother’s birthday party. When you import photos, Photoshop Album displays only the newly acquired photos in the photo well, the main area of your screen. This is the perfect time for you to tag them, because you can concentrate only on the photos at hand. If you want to see all the photos in your catalog, click the Show All button. If you want to return to the batch of photos you just imported, click the Back button.
2. Compare your photos with any tags you already have.
In our case, we have a tag named Grandma (that we’ll apply to photos in which Grandma appears) as well as a few other tags for family members. Also, we have a Places category tag named Our House, which could be applied to these photos.
Take a look at your photos and decide whether you have any tags that will work with them. If not, it’s time to create some new tags!
3. Decide which new tags you need to create.
By looking at the photos, we need a few new tags. We need an Event tag we can apply to the photos we took at Grandma’s birthday party. Also, we need tags for a few people in the pictures. Depending on the content of your photos, you may need a Places tag. For example, if your photos were taken on vacation, you may need a tag named after the location of your trip. For more information on using the tag categories, read through Organizing Photos in Photoshop Album Help.
4. Create the new tags.
To open the Tag Editor, click the Create New Tag button in the Tags pane, or choose Tag > New Tag. The first tag we’ll create for our photos will be an Event tag, named Grandma’s Birthday. This tag is attached to all the photos we took at the party. We’ll continue to use this tag every year. We can use the timeline or the calendar to find photos taken in a particular year. For more information on using the timeline or calendar, search for either of those topics in Photoshop Album Help.
5. Attach the tags to your photos.
You attach tags by dragging a tag onto a photo. You can select more than one photo by holding the Shift key (to select photos in a row) or the Ctrl key (to select non-continuous photos) when you click a photo. You can tell whether you’ve attached a tag to a photo if a small icon shows up in the photo’s thumbnail.
6. Use your new tags to find photos.
Once your photos have been tagged, you can try searching for them. You can use the find bar at the top of the photo well to perform quick searches by simply dragging a tag onto the bar. Photos with that tag are shown in the photo well. You can fine-tune your search by dragging additional tags onto the find bar.
Next year, when we take photos at Grandma’s party, we’ll reuse the new Grandma’s Birthday tag. To find photos from a previous party, we’ll use the timeline slider to narrow the timeframe. 
You can also search for photos that haven’t yet been tagged by choosing Find > Untagged Items. You can then go back through those photos and tag them. 
Using tags is easy and a real time-saver. You’ll never have to remember when, or where, you took your photos. You can find your photos in a snap.
