Getting Photos from a Mobile Phone
If you have a Nokia phone, Photoshop Elements recognizes the phone when you connect it to your computer with a cable. Instead of using this task, you should use the instructions for Getting Photos from a Camera or Card Reader. For all other mobile phones, you can use the From Mobile Phone command. The first time you import files from your mobile phone, you need to specify a folder on your computer to store the downloaded photos, which Photoshop Elements automatically makes a watch folder, so it’s easier for the Organizer to detect and import mobile photos into the catalog.
Import Photos from a Mobile Phone
- In the Organizer, click the File menu, and then point to Get Photos and Videos.
- Click From Mobile Phone.
On secondary use, Photoshop Elements imports the available photos from the specified folder for mobile phone photos.
- On first use, click Browse, specify and select the folder location (such as Mobile Phone Photos) where you want to import the photos, and then click OK.
- Select the Automatically Fix Red Eyes check box to automatically correct red eyes for photos that need it when you import the files.
- Click OK.
