Photo Editing Basics with Adobe Photoshop Elements: Improving, Enhancing, and Retouching Images

Video description

Learn to edit your images using the powerful, yet easy-to-learn, Adobe Photoshop Elements, the “younger sibling” of the professional program. This instructional video will teach you how to enhance, retouch, and edit your images using Adobe Photoshop Elements.

In this easy to digest video, you can immediately put your new photo editing skills to use. This video will touch on the essential basics to get beginners off the ground, starting with learning the work space, and moving onto retouching, exposure correction, and more.

Photoshop Elements is a powerful photo editing program with many of the core functions of the professional's choice, Adobe Photoshop. It's available for both Windows and Mac, but at a fraction of the cost. You'll see how Photoshop Elements is ideal for improving static images―color corrections, reviving faded images, and digitally repairing defects such as scratches and torn areas. It can also help organize and share images.

The full version of Photoshop (or even the open-source GIMP) can be overwhelming to new or novice users. Photoshop Elements is ideal for beginners to learn photo editing, and also ideal for those with some working knowledge of image editing who don’t require the full scope of Photoshop’s features.
