Rating Images with Stars in Photoshop Elements 14

By Barbara Obermeier, Ted Padova

You can rate photos in the Photoshop Elements Organizer by assigning images a number of stars, from one to five. You might have some photos that are exceptional, which you want to give five-star ratings, whereas poor photos with lighting and focus problems might be rated with one star.

To assign a star rating to a photo, first select the Information tab in the top-right corner of the Tags panel; then select a photo in the Media Browser and click a star in the Information panel. One star is the lowest rating, and five stars is the highest.

After assigning star ratings to photos, you can sort photos according to their ratings. For example, click a star that appears in the Ratings at the top of the Media Browser. If you click the third star, all photos rated with three, four, and five stars appear in the Media Browser. If you click the fifth star, only those photos rated with five stars appear in the Media Browser.

Be certain to click the star value in the Information panel when rating a photo with a star rating. If you click a star next to the Ratings label at the top of the Media Browser, Elements thinks you want to sort photos in the Media Browser according to star rating.
