I love taking photos. I’m happy to have a camera in hand and click, click click away all day long. Editing images is something that both fascinates and scares me all at once, and something I really want to work on regularly (enough that I am going to do some online classes to hone the few skills I have, so that I can edit to suit what my visions are for images!). I recently had the chance to check out Adobe’s Photoshop Elements 10 and Premiere Elements 10 and I am loving it!
With Photoshop Elements 10, I can edit my photos automatically (which is what I did most at the beginning) and I can also edit my images to look how I want them. Sometimes a photo just doesn’t work in color…perhaps it was overexposed, perhaps there was another issue. But with this program, I can turn photos like this:
Into really nice black and white photos, and not have a “lost” image simply because of the overexposure, like this:
There are so many fun ways to edit your images (and videos too) with Photoshop Elements 10 and Premiere Elements 10!! Look at this little cutie- it’s a gorgeous photo before…
But make it black and white, leaving just the pink for color, and look how sweet you can make this photo!
There are so many ways you can edit a photo- changing the lighting, the background, fixing color and lighting, adjusting brightness, the white balance…add artistic effects, text, create photo gifts, photo montages and more. I have waited a long time to have an editing option for my home that offered me tons of options for editing photos, and I have that in Photoshop Elements 10. I’m still going to pursue some online courses and tutorials to keep growing my editing knowledge- you can find some great resources to learn more about Elements right on their resource page.
Look how much those gorgeous blue eyes POP when the photo is changed to black and white!
