Photoshop Elements – Video 2 – Layers

Hi!  I am back this week with another Photoshop Elements video.  This time I am showing you the layers and how layers work in Photoshop Elements

Photoshop Elements - Video 2 - - learn what layers are and how they work in Photoshop Elements 8!


Photoshop Elements – Video 2 – Layers

Most photo editing programs have a layers palette.  This is a series of elements included in your document.  The layers palette allows you to see the elements and the order of which they are layered or stacked in your document/project.  Watch this short video to help explain.

If you would like to watch the video full screen (which helps a lot when learning a program) start the video then click on the You Tube logo in the lower right corner.  This will take you to You Tube and give you the icon to go full screen.  Click on the four corners in the lower right corner of the screen.

I hope you enjoyed the video and don’t forget to subscribe to my You Tube channel.   If you don’t have a You Tube account you will need to sign up and get your user name and password but it is free.  Then follow this link or search for Michelle James and look for my photo.  The click on Subscribe!  I appreciate it.  I would love to have some more subscribers.

Remember that Photoshop Elements 8 is not the latest version of the program.  If you would like Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 | PC/Mac Disc you can take a look at it on Amazon.  (Affiliate Link)

I love my version 8 and I am sure the latest version is even better.  I just haven’t upgraded yet because this version is still working well for me.

You can also visit the Adobe website to download a free trial version before you decide to purchase.  This way you know if you like it before you buy it.  There is nothing better than that right?

Thanks for visiting and watching.  I will be back with another Photoshop Elements Video next week.  If you missed last weeks video you can see it here!

Great tutorial Michelle !! I always think I should start learning some photo editing software but never actually started to do it. It's great to be co-hosting #HomeMattersParty with you.

I keep telling myself I need to sit down with Elements and really figure it out. I fumble along right now, but I know it can do so much more than I'm using it for.

It's great co-hosting the #HomeMattersParty with you!

I LOVE elements and I use it every day. I want to start using full blown photoshop and really digging into illustrator. I only use those once in a blue moon. These videos will help with the very basics at the beginning but will get into some more fun things as we go along. Thanks for stopping by!
