MacVoices #22044: Jeff Carlson Talks About The Capabilities of Adobe Photoshop Elements (1)

Jeff Carlson, the author of the new Adobe Photoshop Elements Visual Quickstart Guide, helps us understand who this version of Photoshop is for and what makes it different. Just because it isn’t the full, professional version doesn’t mean that it isn’t packing a whole lot of power. In part 1 of our conversation, Jeff explains how the guided edits feature can not only walk you through improving your photos, but helps you learn how it works, and provides the ability for customization of the effects. (Part 1)
