Lesson 7. Adding Emphasis > Getting started

Getting started

The first five projects in this lesson demonstrate different ways to add a frame to an image. Each of these procedures is relatively easy and short. The final two projects show how to add emphasis to an area of the image, either by toning down everything in the picture except the area you want to emphasize or by repetition.

1.
Start Photoshop Elements 3.0 in Standard Edit mode.

2.
Open the Palette and Photo Bins, if they are not already open, by clicking the arrows () and () at the bottom of the work area or by choosing Window > Palette Bin and Window > Photo Bin to place check marks on those commands.

3.
Review the contents of the Palette Bin, making sure that the Layers, Navigator, Styles And Effects, and Undo History palettes are there.

Note

For help with Palette Bin contents, see “Using the Palette Bin” on page 59.

4.
Click Photo Browser () on the shortcuts bar to switch to Organizer.

You can start with almost any project in this lesson, because they are independent of each other in both subject matter and skill level. However, Projects 4, 6, and 7 are more time-consuming than the others.
