Not Free

If you're looking for a powerful, affordable, and user-friendly alternative to Photoshop CC, Photoshop Elements may be the image-editing software for you. Join me for a two-day intensive look at what Elements has to offer photographers. First you'll learn how Elements and Photoshop differ, then you'll learn how to crop, correct, and retouch your images in Adobe Camera Raw.You'll also explore Elements' three editing modes: Quick, Guided, and Expert, and learn how to incorporate Elements into your Adobe Lightroom workflow.

I also cover the art of resizing images without losing quality, editing non-destructively by using layers, zapping objects from your photos and stitching panoramas. You'll also master practical and creative effects such as black-and-whites, partial color, color tints, collages, pushing photos through text, shapes, and much more! By the end of this course, you'll have the confidence and skill to edit your images with stunning results and you might even be Elements' biggest fan! Here's what people are saying about the course:

"LOVE this basics info class! I've been using PSE for a few years (since version 2.0) for digital scrapbooking, and I've learned at least 5 new things in the 2 hours I've been able to watch! THANK YOU!!!!" Oct. 16, 2013 by RM
