So you want to improve your photos but you have no idea where to start? This is the course for you! Aimed squarely at the novice user, this course takes you through the five steps you will go through again and again when you improve your images. We don't cover every aspect of Adobe Elements, just the basics you need to know to get up and running quickly. I'll explain what the five steps are, how to use the right tool for the job, and also why you do things in a certain order. We'll even practice the steps with a series of images that I provide.
I've taught the techniques in this course using another photo editing suite. At the time of writing the user ratings for that course currently stand at 4.9 out of 5 stars! Maybe that's because I believe in knowledge, not just information. Information is just telling you what a tool does. Knowledge is telling you what it does, the best way to use it, when to use and when not to use it, how to use it with other tools it and why to use it. That's how you learn something useful...
You don't need to know every tool in an image editing program. But you do need to know just a few steps to take things to a new level. I'll take you through those steps one by one, and I'll help you make your photos shine!
