Transformation Tricks in Photoshop Elements 11

The transformation controls in Photoshop Elements allow us to distort and scale individual layers with a series of handles that appear on the transformation box whilst carrying out an operation. They give us the ability to scale, skew, distort and generally stretch the layer into a different perspective by either dragging on the aforementioned handles or entering a numerical value into the Options Panel that appears along with the function.

Layer Styles in Photoshop Elements 9

Text, shapes and even layers can all look drab with no formatting. Thankfully Photoshop Elements provides us with pre-determined 'styles' to help make things look more inviting. These include drop shadows, outer glows and bevels amongst others, and can be really important in helping your artwork stand out from the rest.

Quick Selection Tool

The Quick Selection Tool creates a freeform selection outline around objects with similar colours and shades. In this example I'll use it to select Elvis Presley's Pink Cadillac leaving us with the option of changing pink to blue, or any other colour you fancy. The wonderful thing about this tool is its ease of use, the slightly annoying thing is its not always as quick as you'd imagine - especially if you're looking for quality results. Nonetheless its a great tool to have on your side, and will definitely come to your aid if you use the selection tools regularly.

In this video I'll introduce my 'Beginner's Guide to Photoshop Elements 9' series available on this site. I'll use the time to set out the course, discuss what I'll teach and help you understand the overall objective and aim of the series. This is the 1st and shortest video out of the 86 available.

A Beginner’s Guide to Photoshop Elements 9 - Coming Soon!
Over the past few months I’ve been thinking about re-recording my popular video series ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Photoshop Elements’, updating it from version 6 to 9. It’s a lot of work so it wasn’t a decision I could take lightly, as not only would I need to update parts of the course that had changed through the versions, but also add additional content on other essential commands and new features that came along with version 9.
 
13 Lost Tutorials
A few weeks ago I stepped down from my position of moderator at photoshopforums.com to focus on other things including writing and recording more tutorials for this site. During my 27 months at PhotoshopForums.com I wrote 13 quick-fire tutorials for the Tutorials and Featured Tips section, some of them, I'm pleased to say, receiving over 5000 views.
