1Photoshop Elements 3.0 must be running in Standard Edit mode for either of these procedures. One method is to select the layer you want to duplicate in the Layers palette, and then choose Layer > Duplicate Layer. The other method is to drag the layer (placing the pointer on either the layer thumbnail or the layer name) to the New Layer button () in the Layers palette. In either case, you get two identical layers, stacked one above the other.
2You can adjust the lighting for a photo in either Standard Edit or Quick Fix mode. In Standard Edit, you must use the Enhance > Adjust Lighting menu to open various dialog boxes that contain the controls. Or, you can choose Enhance > Auto Levels or Enhance > Auto Contrast. In Quick Fix mode, you can use the Lighting palette in the Palette Bin.
3You cannot rearrange image windows in Quick Fix, which displays only one photograph at a time. In Standard Edit, there are several ways you can arrange them. One is to choose Window > Images, and choose one of the items listed there. Another method is to use the buttons in the upper right corner of the work area, just below the Minimize, Restore/Maximize, and Close buttons for Photoshop Elements 3.0. A third way is to drag the image window title bar to move an image window and to drag a corner to resize it (provided Maximize mode is not currently active).
4An adjustment layer does not contain an image; instead, it modifies some quality of all the layers below it in the Layer palette. For example, a Brightness/Contrast layer can alter the brightness and contrast of any underlying layers. One advantage of using an adjustment layer instead of adjusting an existing layer directly is that it is easily reversible. You can click the eye icon for the adjustment layer to remove the effects instantly, and then restore the eye icon to apply the adjustments again. You can change a setting in the adjustment layer to zero to reset that option to its original condition.
