Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 Digital Classroom
Adobe Photoshop Elements lets you edit and organize your digital images. While it is a powerful product that includes some of the same capabilities found in the professional Photoshop products, the Elements version makes image editing simple and accessible. Photoshop Elements is more than editing, and organizing—it empowers story telling with
images and video, the ability to personalize and create galleries, calendars, and other projects with your images, both in print and on the Web.
Adobe Photoshop Elements is available for the Mac and Windows operating systems. The Windows version includes the Organizer workspace where you can sort and organize your images. The Mac OS version does not include the organizer, instead Adobe included the
Adobe Bridge software that ships with their Adobe Creative Suite software to assist you with organizing your images. For many years Adobe neglected the Mac OS with Photoshop Elements being several versions more advanced on the Windows platform. The features for editing are now the same, but they are not for organization. Because of this, the Mac OS
organization features are different from what is described in parts of this book. Because of these differences, we have included a section just for Mac OS users at the end of this book on how to use the Adobe Bridge. Because of the differences between the Windows and Mac OS versions of Photoshop Elements, parts of Lesson 1 and Lesson 2 will not apply to Mac OS users.
Adobe Photoshop Elements Digital Classroom is like having your own personal instructor guiding you through each lesson while you work at your own speed. This book includes 14 self-paced lessons that let you discover essential skills and explore the new features and
capabilities of Photoshop Elements. Each lesson includes step-by-step instructions, lesson files, and video tutorials, all of which are available on the included DVD. This book has been
developed by the same team of Adobe Certified Instructors and Photoshop experts who have created many of the official training titles for Adobe Systems and other books in the Digital
Classroom book series.
