About

Welcome to Creative Elements Tutorials. This site dedicated to showing what you can create with Adobe Photoshop Elements. Although it is a fraction of the cost of the full version of Photoshop, it is an extremely powerful program and can achieve a great many of the same effects.

I am using version 11 but nearly all of the tools and effects used are available in other versions, although they might be placed somewhere slightly different.

Although the tutorials are designed with Photoshop Elements in mind, obviously all of them can also be followed using the full version of Photoshop as there is nothing that Elements can do that Photoshop cannot, although again, the menus will be arranged differently.

I have tried to make each tutorial as clear and easy to follow as possible, with plenty of illustrations along the way to help you know you are on the right track. I encourage you to follow the tutorials and then experiment with different colours, blend modes etc. Often just changing a blend mode can have a dramatically different effect.

Enjoy the tutorials!
