Adobe Photoshop Elements

By Scott Phillips


Difference between:

Photoshop CS

Photoshop Elements

  • More for Home-users

  • Can cost up to $500-600

  • Has all the general features of Photoshop but less options

  • Moderate learning curve

  • More for editing and drawing

  • Professionals Version

  • Can cost up to $1000

  • Has more advanced features and options than Elements

  • High learning curve

  • More for creating

  • Differences aren’t that huge

  • Photoshop CS slightly more advanced than Photoshop Elements

  • Both can still do the same thing just at different levels

  • Beginners and Moderate users (like myself) should avoid jumping right into CS

Image, Enhance, Layer, Select, Filter


Layer Panel:

Core element for any Photoshop project. Layers allow you to make specific items on a picture be placed in a certain order from the ‘front’ to the ‘back’. An item on the front will be on top of everything whilst an item at the back will be behind everything

Undo History Panel:

Not necessary but very useful. Allows you to backtrack to certain stages if you make a mess of your project. Gives a greater visual to your steps than if you blindly clicked the Undo button.

Project Bin:

Stores opened up project windows for easy access. Double-clicking a project in the bin will minimize the current project and restore the new project. You can also drag items from the Project Bin into your current project to insert it in.
