Starting with simple projects, you'll quickly learn how to build pages, use artistic journaling, and produce sophisticated illusions. Photoshop Elements lets you build your own clip art, create frames, and develop multi-layer pages with an endless array of layouts and designs.

You'll see how to draw and create your own art, build collages and scrapbooks to share, and work with both color and black and white. If you need to restore or age images—the tools are all available to you.

Join us and take your scrapbooking to a new level!

Adobe Photoshop Elements 11, 12, or 13 for Windows/Mac (software must be installed and fully operational before the course begins); Windows 7 / Vista / XP, Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

Due to a significant change in the look and menu appearance of Photoshop Elements starting with version 11, students with earlier versions of the software should upgrade to Photoshop Elements 11, 12, or 13 before starting this course. Instructions, screenshots, and examples all rely heavily on specific instructions for these versions.

Note: This course is written with the Windows version of the software. Mac students are welcome, but will need to make standard Windows/Mac keystroke conversions—many of which are included in the course material. Teaching staff has Mac software and equipment available and can help troubleshoot with Mac students to complete course material if necessary.
