Chapter 2. Creating and Managing Images

Chapter 2. Creating and Managing Images

One of the first things you’ll be doing in Photoshop Elements is setting up your image. This involves creating a new file (or importing a photo or image from a digital camera, camcorder, or scanner), setting its dimensions and size, and arranging it on your desktop in a way that works best for you. Photoshop Elements can seem a little overwhelming at first, presenting you with almost too many settings choices when you first start working on an image. While you’re welcome to adjust your image’s resolution and print size to your heart’s desire, you can also choose to skip this information for now if you just want to start correcting or retouching your photos. That’s the beauty of Photoshop Elements. It offers an enormous amount of control and precision over your images, no matter how large or small the task.

This chapter shows you how to get your images into Photoshop Elements, and offers some basic guidelines on adjusting an image’s size and resolution, depending on whether you want to print it, e-mail it, or put it up on the Web. You’ll also learn the different methods for viewing additional information about your images.
