This is in answer to one of the most frequent questions I get asked and it has to do with confusion from people who are new to Photoshop Elements, How to Print or Export. The confusion comes from that Layers Panel, anyone new to image editing on a computer will not have seen that before. Once you know that the Layers Panel is just internal to the image and you can ignore it with regards to Printing or Exporting all is fine again. So...here is what is up with Printing and Exporting from Photoshop Elements.
I designed this back around Saint Patrick's Day earlier this year but now is as good a time as any to do some graphic design in Photoshop Elements. This time around it is an intertwining Celtic Knot. Took some thinking to figure out the layers for this picture but once that is done the rest is easy. I've color coded the layers in this video to make it easier to understand.
We all want the best pictures we can get but there are some situations where you will need to do some editing in a photo program like Photoshop Elements. Newborn photography is one of those times. You will rarely get a perfect photo of a new born child. So here is my video on some of the techniques you can use to improve a photo of a baby.
In this video from my YouTube channel I show you how to replace a boring sky with a more interesting sky and then as an added bonus toss in a custom rainbow. The rainbow is optional but the sky replacement technique is consistently useful to improve photos.
A very powerful and useful tool in Adobe Photoshop is the ability to record and play back a series of actions, allowing you to create custom automations for your Photoshop projects. Photoshop Elements does not have the record feature but it does have the ability to play back Actions. In this video I show you how to take recorded actions from Adobe Photoshop and use them in Photoshop Elements.
This is a followup video on the last video I posted. That video showed how to set up Frequency Separation Editing in Photoshop Elements. This video demonstrates the technique from start to finish in a photo portrait edit.
One of the coolest and most useful tricks in digital portrait editing is to separate out the textures from the colors and values. This allows you to use different approaches to these two aspects of the edit for the most control. Doing this involves a technique known as Frequency Separation which is a well known trick for Adobe Photoshop but not so well known for Photoshop Elements. So, here is how to do Frequency Separation in Photoshop Elements.
Here is an interior design photo manipulation project showing how to add a computer generated picture of a wall sign to an actual photo of a wall. Good for product conceptualization, demos, interior design. In this case I placed a backlit text sign on a black wall in a ski lounge.
