Kay said,

This course can give a greater understanding of how to navigate around the screen and locate where the basics are. The tool section of the course shows many hidden items and how or what they can do. The Cheat sheets are great for a quick reference.

Megan said,

I didn't know you could change all the colors of guides, etc. And the "tab" key you're right, who knew? Not this girl!

Everything you need to know to set up and get started with PSE! I highly recommend this course!

Karen said,

I always wondered what the tolerance slider was for & what the difference between contiguous and anti-aliasing. Now I know to look at those when selecting areas. How to use the Marquee tool to make a square or circle is also new to me. Using the bounding box to zoom in and then open the original is also new to me. Great class!

"All great creative work is built on a strong foundation." ~Sonia Simone

You may feel like many others that say they just don't know where to start. Learning the basics of Photoshop Elements is where you begin. It is the foundation for everything else, without this strong foundation you'll have trouble creating anything of value. With it the possibilities are endless!

"Thank you so much! I haven't used PSE in a very long time & now I have the latest version. With your help it's all coming back to me"

- Jeannine, experienced PSE user
