Chapter 2. Maximum Exposure: Photographic Effects

Chapter 2. Maximum Exposure: Photographic Effects

This chapter is a nice change because you generally get to start each project with a photograph, and then you just add cool effects to it. This is a bigger advantage than it might first seem. I mean, think about it—if you don't start with a photo, you're starting off with a blank canvas. There's nothing more terrifying than staring at a blank page and trying to come up with an awesome effect entirely from scratch. So, in essence, this chapter is kind of like cheating, and that's good. Unless, of course, you live in Las Vegas, where apparently cheating is frowned upon. In fact, if you're caught cheating in a Vegas casino, I've heard they make you use Elements 1 as punishment; so if you live out that way, you don't want to chance it. In fact, in the interest of personal safety, I'd recommend that all Nevada residents skip this chapter entirely, and always start each Photoshop Elements project with a blank page. Hey, the last thing you want is some angry pit boss chasing you around threatening you with outdated products. It's just not worth it.
