About

Welcome to Creative Elements Tutorials. This site provides tutorials to help you create images with Adobe Photoshop Elements. This extremely powerful program is a fraction of the cost of Photoshop, but it can achieve many of the same great effects.

Each tutorial is clear and easy to follow and there are plenty of illustrations to help you see you are on the right track. I encourage you to follow the tutorials and then experiment yourself with different colours, blend modes etc. Often if you change just one element, such as a blend mode, it can have a dramatically different effect on your image.

Version information

I am using version 11 of Elements.¬†However, don’t worry if you have a different version. Nearly all of the tools and effects used are available in other versions. The only thing you may notice is that the layout is slightly different.

Although the tutorials are designed with Photoshop Elements in mind,  they can also be followed with the full version of Photoshop. This is because there is nothing that Elements can do that Photoshop cannot, although the layout will be different.

Enjoy the tutorials.
