These tutorials are liable to be about anything from my current project to something that drove me nuts trying to figure out.

I just love Photoshop Elements and the new version 6 is a galactic value for the money. One of my favorite new features is a filter that was snatched from big brother Photoshop called Correct Camera Distortion (though over there it's called Lens Correction and it's hiding in the Distort filter category). Oh sure this filter has the power to correct edge vignetting from lower quality lenses but that's not what we're going to use it for. Oh no. I've got something much more creative in mind.
