                 Photo Prints
                 The Photo Print option is available for both Mac and Windows users. It provides a quick way
                 to output your photos to your desktop printer. For Windows users there are the additional
                 options of creating and printing a Picture Package, or transferring the photos to an online
                 print provider such as or Kodak. As with many of the other partner service
                 offerings in Elements, the number of online print companies will depend on the geographic
                 region in which you reside.

                 The Flipbook derives its name from the old technique of drawing a slightly different picture on the successive pages
                 of a small notebook. You would then animate the sequence by grasping the edge of the pages, arching the book and
                 flipping the pages in quick sequence. Unlike the animations produced in GIF format, the Flipbook feature uses a se-
                 ries of different images that have been selected in the Organizer space as the basis for the animation. This approach
                 makes the feature particularly good for creating snippets of action from sequences of photos captured on the Burst
                 or Continuous Shooting mode with your digital camera.
