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.
