Quick Fixes: Get Your Photos Ready for Projects

Quick Fixes: Get Your Photos Ready for Projects

Learn easy ways to fix problems such as red-eye, color imbalance, crooked images, and more.

Tools: Photoshop Elements

Materials: Your photo

In this first project, you will learn to use some of Photoshop Elements’ features to fix common image problems such as red-eye, color casts, and backlighting. Open an image that you’d like to work on. Use the techniques that are best suited to your image.

Before you start to edit your image, take a look at the following checklist to help ensure a smooth project workflow.

Create a copy of the original image. It’s always a good idea to keep the original version of your photo as a backup in case you need it for any reason.

Work in RGB Mode. In Photoshop Elements, you can work in RGB, Bitmap, Grayscale, or Index color mode. Very rarely will you work in any other mode than RGB. To see what mode your image is in or to change the mode, choose Image > Mode.
