Have you got a copy of Photoshop Elements on your computer that is gathering dust?

Have you tried following tutorials only to find they assume you know which panel is which what, and what all the names and icons mean?

Do you just want to print a photo, but no one will give you a straight answer on how to do it?

I hear you!

Photo Editing for Absolute Beginners answers the most common questions that new Photoshop Elements users ask me. Straight to the point, using the simplest method that will get you in and out of Photoshop Elements in a couple of minutes.

You'll learn how to:

  • Find your way around the Photoshop Elements workspace - so you can find the tools and commands you need
  • Open a photo in Photoshop Elements  - and save it so that you can't ruin your original
  • Edit a photo in quick mode - and improve the look of your photos
  • Crop a photo for printing - so you get the whole subject in the frame
  • Add text to a photo - tell your story or make a postcard
  • Save a photo for printing online - so the prints look the best they can
  • Print at home - on photo paper of ANY size
  • Print multiple photos on a 4x6 - a cost effective way to get your smaller prints for pocket scrapping
