Part 3. Basic Photo Fixing > Making a Quick Fix

Making a Quick Fix

You can use Photoshop Elements's Quick Fix mode as one-stop-shopping for all the commands in the Enhance menu. Get there by clicking the Quick Fix button on the shortcuts bar, or by clicking Quickly Fix Photos in the Welcome screen.

With the picture you want to fix in the active image area, click the Quick Fix button on the shortcuts bar.

Click the disclosure triangle for the section you want to use (such as Lighting).

Click an Auto button (such as Levels) to adjust the image; Levels adjusts the picture's balance of dark and light areas.

If you don't like the changes Elements makes, click Reset to restore the image to its original state.

NOTE

Auto and Semi-Auto Fixes

Each Auto adjustment requires just a single click. For more control over the changes being made to your image, use the sliders to determine the amount of modification made to lighting and color and the amount of sharpening (see the next task).


TIP

Don't Like After?

Your Quick Fix changes are cumulative, so you can do one, such as Auto Lighting, and then do another, such as a custom amount of sharpening applied with the slider—until the After image is just right.
