The Toolbox

Photoshop Elements Toolbox

The Toolbox in Photoshop Elements is well-stocked with all the Tools you need to get the job done.

Many of them are pretty straight forward. Just like in any workshop, a tool like a hammer is easy to figure out how to use for a basic purpose like pounding a nail.

But it might take you a while to figure out the best way to hold it for the most efficient use, or how in certain situations you can use it to toenail, or to pry two boards apart.

This page is an attempt to go over all those details in a video so you can use each Tool in Photoshop Elements for maximum benefit.

I decided to put this page up before it was complete so that people could benefit from the Tools that are featured, instead of waiting until I had each and every Tool listed. So this page is a work in progress will be added to on a regular basis.

Hi Rick. Just wanted to say a big thank you for all of the great information contained in your tutorials. I've stumbled around PS9 for quite a few weeks now and can't believe quite how easily you explain the different aspects. It's way, way more powerful than I imagined and now, for me, usable too. A big, big thank you from the UK. - Guy
