You’ll notice that the main work area defaults to the folder view—that means you’ll see the contents of the primary folder, “My Albums.” The folders, and the albums contained within them, are listed on the left-hand side of the page. The albums also appear in the main work area, which is a great way to view a folder’s albums at a glance.

Double-clicking on any of the albums from either part of the page will change the main work area to the album view, so that you’re then seeing the contents of the album—in other words, the pictures.

The standard album view features five picture thumbnails on each row. Perhaps you’ve taken a couple shots that are similar to one another and want to compare them side-by-side. In that case, you can adjust the picture thumbnail size by clicking the large thumbnail icon at the bottom of the page. Do this and you’ll see two thumbnail images per row.

On the other hand, perhaps you want to see more of your album’s pictures in the main work area, for quicker scanning and faster arranging. The best way to accomplish this is by making the picture thumbnails smaller. Simply click the small thumbnail icon and you’ll be able to view eight images per row.

In “My Pictures” you can view up to 50 pictures per page in the main work area by using the scroll bar on the right. If you have more than 50 pictures in any album, navigate through the multiple pages by using the pulldown menu in the upper right corner.

In addition to folder view and album view, you can double-click on any picture thumbnail to get a close-up look at that single image. All the other pictures in the album are still accessible—they’re in the strip that appears at the bottom of the page. Double-click any of those thumbnails and you’ll see them in picture view.

If you’d like to see how your pictures look when displayed at full-size on your monitor, click the “Play Slideshow” button at the top of the page. You’ll be able to view all the selected pictures in your album. Move your mouse to the top-center of the page to control the slideshow—click the center button to play and pause, click the left button to view the previous image and click the right button to view the next image.

View your projects
You can view more than pictures and albums. If you have created projects such as calendars or photo books, you can navigate to those as well. Select the “View projects” link located at the bottom of the left-side column. The main work area will then fill with a list of all existing product types you’ve created and saved. Select one of those links to access your projects and edit, share or order them.
