The video starts off waaay past where she should have. Which is what she typically does. Find another tutorial because this is pitiful. One of the worst tutorials I have ever seen. She doesn't even explain how she gets to the place she is starting at. LOLOL

ur voice is so annoying and u have to give every detail about everything... ugh
Brindabella Bella (1 year ago)
Disagree. Voice is that of a dedicated teacher; and as a beginner I need to know these 'details'. We all learn differently.

Mine won't let me drag the second photo up to the layer box and I'm not sure why.

+Cassolelvr Hi, drag the 2nd image onto the 1st open image, not onto the layer panel.

Can you do overlay, such as add fire flies to a photo? I would like to use a program for my photography special effects.

Can Photoshop Elements 13 allow you to turn photographs into oil or watercolor paintings?
How To Gurus (3 years ago)
+S Louttit Hi, go to Filter Menu and Filter Gallery. Look in the Artistic filter set.

I found the tutor Jan Kabili to be the easiest to follow yet. I would love to learn more from her. I recently bought CS6 and tried dozens of web tutorials and am a total beginner and keep getting tied up in knots with things going wrong. Does Jan Kabili teach CS6 or can you learn on Elements and then use that knowledge for CS6? She is awesome!

Amazing Tutorial, gradient masks are really cool I never thought of that. Is there a way to mask everything below a certain layer? I am trying to sketch a website in Photoshop and would like the blank browser window print-screen to show on the top of everything. I could possibly delete the middle part or mask it but what is the best way of doing this?
Marie-Pier Courbron (5 years ago)
not at all useful for me. Im trying to add someone in a family picture. The sizes dont work, Im trying to move ppl around. Photoshop isnt that easy to use!
Lee B (4 years ago)
use the recompose feature its the easiest way to shift objects around in an image without layering
