Lesson 1: Introduction to Photoshop ElementsIf you're a photography enthusiast or have the need to edit photos or graphics, then you'll absolutely love Photoshop Elements 8. This software program is simply a condensed version of the well-known software program Photoshop.
Lesson 2: The Organizer EnvironmentIn this lesson, we're going to discuss the features and options associated with the Organizer environment. Let's start by opening Element and clicking on Organizer on the Welcome Screen.
Lesson 3: Edit ModesElements is a neat software program because it has different interfaces (or environments) for all of its features. In the last lesson, we learned all about the Organizer environment.
Lesson 4: The Basics of ColorThere are two color models in Elements that allow you to set color for your images. The first model is based on the way that the human eye sees color.
Lesson 5: Painting ToolsElements provides several tools to apply and add color. The Paint tools are just an example of these. Paint allows you to add color using brushes, just like you would with a real paint brush.
Lesson 6: Making SelectionsWhen you make a selection, you select part of an image. You can select parts of an image to cut it out, copy it, smooth the edges, anti-alias, and several other options.
Lesson 7: Filling and StrokingWhen you apply a fill to an image, you apply a color, pattern, or gradient to part of or all of the image. Of course, you could do the same thing with a brush, but it is quicker and easier to use a fill on larger areas.
Lesson 8: LayersIf you've never worked with any type of a photo editing program before or have very little experience, the subject of layers may just make you cringe.
Lesson 9: TextUsing Elements, you can also add text to images. This can be fun if you want to be a little creative or even if you need to add text to explain an image.
Lesson 10: Create ShapesUsing Elements, you can draw shapes in your images. Shapes are vector graphics. They are comprised of lines and curves, and they are known by their geometric characteristics instead of by pixels.
Lesson 11: More ToolsThe Sponge tool is used to bring out or mute the color of an object or an area of an image by saturating or desaturating it.
Lesson 12: Lighting, Color, Contrast and ClarityIf you've ever had a photo or an image that was too dark, just had poor color, or even problems with red eye, you can use elements to fix all these problems and more.
Lesson 13: Printing, Sharing, and CreatingWhen you're finished organizing and editing your images, you may want to print them out.
