Photoshop Elements

A lot of people don’t realize that when you use Photoshop Elements you also have a powerful organizer. I have been using Elements since version 1. I have always been impressed about how easy it is to organize all of my photos. It is also really nice in that it allows you to build albums so you can keep your photos together.

I once met a man who said that a really great picture is one that is captured right out of the camera. I also met a man once that told me, don’t worry how you capture it you can fix it up in the editor. If I had to pick one of these two statements I would tend to choose the first one.
