The first step to creating a photograph that shines on its own as a work of true art is to capture the perfect composition. This isn't a task that Photoshop Elements can help you with; only you have the ability and skill to manipulate the light, steer the subject, anticipate the perfect moment, and produce a scene that attracts the adoration of people's eyes. But after you've done that, you can manipulate your composition so that it does appear—at least partly—to have been rendered by hand instead of by pixel. The Editor in Photoshop Elements can help you apply textures, effects, and optical illusions to give your composition the feel of a painting. If you yourself are inclined to painting with real paint on a real canvas, you might even become inspired, having seen your own photographs in prototype painted form.
