In this class, you'll learn practical editing techniques you'll use every day with the affordable Adobe Photoshop Elements. By the end of this informative day of learning, you'll be able to turn the photos you have into the photos you need. You'll also learn how to move throughout the program and editing modes to suit your specific skill level and discover how to easily perform basic edits such as fixing animal white-eye, mastering Levels for color correction and understanding resolution once and for all. You'll also learn how to retouch portraits using pro-level, non-destructive techniques. Glean the secrets to gorgeous black and whites, partial color effects, creative edges, collages, and more. Here's what people are saying about the course:

"How refreshing. I have taken Photoshop classes at photographic centers, community colleges, and online but they all left something to be desired. Lesa has designed a class that makes it all work. As a "hands on" learner, I am now be able to use the tools in Elements with confidence. Awesome! Just what I needed." July 29, 2011 by RG

"I took Lesa's Photoshop elements 9 class and liked it so much I bought it. She spelled everything out and made things easy for me to understand." July 19, 2011 by PS

"Because Lesa did such a good job showing off the new features in Elements 9, I just had to buy it. And here I thought I would be happy with Elements 8 forever. Thanks, Lesa." June 28, 2011 by JC

"A very useful course. I enjoyed it and hope I get time to go through all of it again to cement everything in memory. Hopefully, it will stay available long enough for me to do it slowly. I've already been able to use some of what I learned in the first session, but there was so much! It will take awhile!" June 24, 2011 by RL

"Amazing class, Lesa is fun to listen to and she knows her stuff. She made the confusion over so many parts of PSE march in straight lines so I could understand." June 23, 2011 by DT

"What a great seminar. Just one of the tips is worth the price of the seminar." June 22, 2011 by PM

"I always hated Photoshop... too complicated and hard to learn. Lesa made it easy and fun to dive deep into Element 9. I purchased the course, so I can watch it over & over again. THANKS CreativeLive!!" June 22, 2011 by MK
