Adobe Photoshop Elements Tutorials: A Free 3-Hour Video Course
We’ve previously covered 30 hours of free video tutorials for Adobe’s Creative Suite 6, as well as four hours for Lightroom 4 – so here are some helpful (and free) new learning resources for the just-released Elements 11 product line…
Because Elements 11 has an all-new intuitive editing environment with a revamped Organizer plus other new features, the content here doesn’t carry well to older versions of Photoshop Elements. However, we do also have a page still available with several hours of free tutorials for PSE 10 & 9 and earlier.
In the brand new course given below, the experts share how to get started with Photoshop Elements 11, the basics of the software, new features, how to use key tools and functions, plus their favorite tips and techniques. In sum, there is nearly 3 hours of free training video, with 33 separate chapters.
Most modern cameras now also take great videos in addition to photos, so Photoshop Elements is well-integrated with Premiere Elements for video editing – and since many people use the tools together, we’ve also included links for over two hours of free tutorials for learning how to use Premiere Elements 11.
If you need a copy of Photoshop or Premiere Elements 11 to get going right away, just download the free trials and they will work fully for 30 calendar days, which should be plenty of time to get through the classes. Note at the bottom of this page, you’ll also find quick demos of the two programs.
[ And after watching these, hop over and download almost 200 pages of free Elements 11 e-books for more on how to best use these new tools. ]
