Adding Photoshop Elements Effects
hen Adobe, Inc. came out with Photoshop Elements, digital photographers all over the world were effusive in their praise, and for good reason. Photoshop Elements takes many of the effects that you can synthesize in Photoshop and reduces the process to clicking a few buttons. What was once the realm of the few experts immediately became the forte of the masses. And what's more, Photoshop Elements is priced hundreds of dollars less than its expert big brother.
In this chapter, I introduce you to some of the spectacular effects available in Photoshop Elements. You find out how to
Add a wind effect to give the appearance of movement
Give your photos different appearances, such as making them seem like colored-pencil drawings, mosaics, or metallic renderings
Provide spectacular lighting effects
Distort images
And these effects, even though they look spectacular, are simple enough for anyone to use with confidence. Just follow the steps!
