Chapter 7. Filters and Effects > Using the Filters and Effects Palettes

Using the Filters and Effects Palettes

Photoshop Elements includes over 100 filters and over 50 effects, offering you almost unlimited possibilities for tweaking and enhancing your images. Most filters include a dialog box where you can preview any changes and adjust the settings for either a subtle or dramatic effect. And some of the filters (such as the Liquify filter) are so complex that they seem like separate little applications within Photoshop Elements.

Effects work a bit differently than filters. When you apply an effect, Photoshop Elements actually runs through a series of automatic actions in which a number of filters and layer styles are applied to your image. Effects are a bit more complex than filters. If you want to add a drop shadow, picture frame, or brushed-metal type to a photo, browse through the Effects palette to see what’s available.
