Go Beyond the Basics

Master the basics of Photoshop Elements and you may start looking for new things to do with your pictures. Digital photography offers so many options for creative expression. One great option is to convert your pictures to black-and-white. Not all that long ago, color was the special type of photography, and black-and-white was rather ordinary. At that time, black-and-white was commonly seen in every publication. Today, color is the most common way that pictures are printed. Black-and-white has become a very special way of dealing with pictures, giving images a unique look in contrast to very common color photos. In addition, black-and-white gives you multiple ways to deal with a subject.
