Part IV: Going Creative > Creating Backgrounds and Textures from Scratch

Hour 22. Creating Backgrounds and Textures from Scratch

Maybe it’s been raining, and you haven’t been out with the camera in a while, or maybe you’ve run out of photos to fix. Or maybe you just want to do something different and creative. Even though Elements was never intended to be a complete graphics program, between the Brush tools, filters, and gradients, you can use it to create backgrounds and textures for all kinds of projects.

In this hour you will

  • Create colorful backgrounds and fills with the Gradient tool

  • Create a sandy beach

  • Learn sources for backgrounds, textures, and other images

  • Create backgrounds and textures using filters and effects
