Photoshop Elements 1 - Basic  

Your camera develops your photos for you. Can you do a better job? Yes! You're more creative than your camera. You'll learn how to adjust the exposure and contrast. You'll also learn how to lighten and darken parts of your photos (burning and dodging). Organizing your photos will be covered as well. Extensive handouts are included. We'll cover the first third to half of this outline: Students may use a computer in the lab or can bring in a laptop. If using a school computer, bring some of your photos to class on a large capacity flash drive. A 128 MB flash drive is about $28. Windows users can use a flash drive or an external hard drive.

Note #1 Photoshop Elements 15 is used on the school computers. On your laptop or desktop computer at home, you can use any version between 11 and 15, or Photoshop Elements 2018. Photoshop Elements 2018 is the most recent version as of August, 2018. Check for later versions at Adobe ( The program is often sold bundled with Premiere—a video editing program. Don't buy Photoshop Elements with Premier unless you want a video editing program (not taught). Note #2 This is a Photoshop Elements class—not Photoshop. However—if you have Photoshop CC—and are adept at using software and computers—you can use Photoshop CC at home. Note #3 - Windows 10 Users Photoshop Elements 15 and Photoshop Elements 2018, on a Windows 10 computer, require a 64-bit version of Windows 10. Press the Windows key + Pause key. Look for System Type. If you see 32-bit, purchase Photoshop Elements 14.
