Adobe Photoshop Elements
Easy to Use and Powerful

Adobe Photoshop Elements can do all kinds of things with your digital photographs.

This page shows just a few before-and-after examples of what you can do with it.

What is Adobe Photoshop Elements?

Adobe Photoshop Elements is a low-cost image editing program. It's user-friendly for the novice, yet sophisticated enough for experienced photographers.

  • It allows you to enhance your digital photos for brilliant color and clarity.
  • You can fix annoying problems like crooked photos.
  • Crop out distracting objects.
  • You can also apply special effects for impact, creativity, or just for fun.

This is super-easy to fix with Elements. See how here.

There's Much Much More

That's just the very tip of the iceberg of what Adobe Photoshop Elements can do. There are many more retouching techniques you can use.

There's also other cool tricks you can you can use to enhance your photos.

Check out some of these options you can use to turn ordinary shots into extraordinary photographs.

Replace a Drab Sky

Your on vacation and you make the almost 2-hour hike up the mountain to see the awesome view and snap some pictures.

The view is awesome but when you see the  pictures your disappointed. The picture is unimpressive because the clouds had rolled in and the gray sky dominates the picture, stealing the glory from the vista.

Well why not use the blue sky that you captured in the shot before the sky turned gray. It's an option you can use when you have Adobe Photoshop Elements!

Look at what a difference it made in the photo below.

Intensify or Simulate a Sunset

You can even show what a scene would look like with a magnificent sunset.

See how I got the results in the photo below by clicking here.

Correct Common Problems

We already saw how you can use PSE to fix exposure and color problems. It's also easy to fix other problems and save a photo you might otherwise discard.

For example you can quickly crop out distracting areas from the background.

Elements even has a Straighten tool to adjust crooked shots. It took less than a minute to straighten the photo below.

Click here to see how easy it was.

This isn't even close to being a complete list of what you can do with Adobe Photoshop Elements. I just wanted to give you an idea of how easy it is to use and some of the more common uses.

I believe anyone who takes digital photographs will find Elements indispensable and well worth the cost.

Digital Scrappers as well as professional photographers will treasure the creative capabilities it will give them.

A Good Place to Buy

If you're like me you want to make sure you get a good price when you buy something.

It's hard to beat when it comes to customer service and price.

If you've ever bought books at Amazon you know how streamlined their process is and how competitive their pricing is.

The same holds true for software. They change their price for Elements frequently but typically they offer it for 10% to 30% less than elsewhere.

Your purchase also qualifies for free shipping.
