3 Photoshop Elements Tutorials to Help You Correct and Enhance Your Images


We’ve noticed on our current reader survey (if you haven’t filled it out already, please do so here) that many of you are using Photoshop Elements. So I rounded up some video tutorials to help you use Elements (15 or any older version) to help you make corrections and enhancements to your images.

#1 How to brighten and improve a dull photo

George Peirson from How To Gurus walks you through several steps you can apply to make a dull photo more exciting. He covers things like working with adjustment layers so you can work non-destructively, adding more color in certain areas, layer blending modes, and more.

#2 How to remove people using the clone stamp tool

Sometimes you can get unwanted people in your shots. In this video you can learn how to remove them using just the clone stamp tool in Photoshop Elements.

#3 How to create a motion blur effect using Elements

In this final video learn the steps to add motion to an image using different blur effects in Photoshop Elements. The example used is a race car that was frozen with a fast shutter speed.

If you use Photoshop Elements I hope these videos have helped you out, and you have learned a couple new things. Many things that you can do in Photoshop, can also be done in Elements. Some of the tools and menus are a bit different but many of the features are similar. Elements also offers a “guided” user experience to help you walk through doing some common things.

If you want to learn more try the Adobe website where they have more tutorials and articles on Elements.

    One year ago,after resigning my office job , I was blessed to find following awesome website that was a life saver for me… They offer online work for people to do what is required from their comfort of their home . My last check doing this job with them for 4 months was $10000… Awesome thing about it was that the only requirement for the job is basic typing skills and internet access… https://www.facebook.com/Internet-Jobs-for-US-UK-Australia-Canada-and-New-Zealand-1585996635048445/app/190322544333196/

    Big, big fan of George Peirson. I’ve learnt so much from watching his tutorials, not least because of his approach and how he presents them. It’s like it is just him and you sitting together whilst he goes through the various processes. So much better than some of the other sites on YouTube, which are either way too slick or way too formal.
