[UPDATE – Elements 11 is out! Get free tutorials for the new version.]
We’ve previously covered 17+ hours of free video tutorials for Creative Suite 5, plus three hours for Lightroom 3 – so here are some brand new training resources for the just-released Adobe Photoshop Elements 10… Most of these tutorials also apply to Photoshop Elements 9, which shares the same interface but just doesn’t have as many features.
In these three courses the experts share how to get started, the basics of the software, new features, how to use key tools and functions, plus their favorite tips and techniques. In sum, there is over four hours of free content, with 46 separate chapters.
[ Bonus! Here also are 70 minutes of free tutorials for Premiere Elements 10 for taking care of your video. ]
If you need a copy of Photoshop or Premiere Elements 10 to get going right away, just download the free trial and it will work fully for 30 calendar days, which should be plenty of time to get through the classes.
If you prefer learning in written form, we’ve got the Adobe Photoshop Elements Guide – a free 95-page e-book you can download as well.

Im trying to download adobe photoshop elements 4.0. It asks for the serial number but wont accept the serial number that came with the disc.
So where is the serial number? Thanks
Hi Ron, do you mean Photoshop Elements 9.0 or 4.0? If the product doesn’t accept the serial number, it may be because it’s already in use somewhere else… See these two posts:
How Many Computers Can You Install or Run Adobe Software On?
How to Move Adobe Software Between Computers, or from PC to Mac
i have more than 20,000 images catalogued on photoshop elements 4. i want to move to elements 9. it seems impossible. i tried every possible way. Is this foolish and i should just stay with 4?
Hello Al, in theory you should be able to convert your Photoshop Elements catalog from an older version to a newer one (on Windows) – see the PSE online documentation about this.
If no luck for some reason, try searching the Adobe Forums for additional tips or experiences of others who’ve tried it.
Is this tutorial specific to elements 10, or combined like it is for elements 7 & 8?
Welcome Barbara, thanks for your question. Almost all of the tutorial videos above will also work for Photoshop Elements 9 – only a half dozen or so are PSE 10 specific, mostly pertaining to the new features in that version.
You may also be interested in our free downloadable Photoshop Elements Guide ebook, which was written for PSE 9 but will work for 10 as well.
I should have my Adobe Photoshop and Elements version 10 delivered in about a week. How long will these video tutorials remain up and available for use? Should I be downloading them?
No problem at all Robert – they will be available then, and indefinitely for the future. Feel free to bookmark or come back anytime.
I can’t get any sound with your programs
Hey there Paul – there was a problem today with the video servers, but it should all be working fine again now… Sorry about that!
I recently purchased Elements 10, Photoshop and Premiere. There are 5 discs in the set and the first disc says to start with disc 2 for Windows 7, which I have. Disc 3 says to install for Mac OS, start with disc 3. Should I install all discs starting with disc 2??
Greetings Van, the boxed Elements 10 software ships “multi-platform,” meaning half the DVD’s are for Windows and the other half for Mac OS… You may only need one set depending on which machines you have and how many computers you’re installing on.
Since you do have Premiere Elements, one of the discs also contains the “Additional Content” which is not required (is optional) but nice to install if you want to.
Basically, just follow the instructions given for your operating system and you’ll make sure to get everything installed that needs to.
Will the tutorial videos for Photoshop Elements 9/10 be made available again? Right now, clicking on the links bring up the message that they can’t be found.
Hi, just tested all the links on this page and they seem to check out and work fine… Perhaps you’re blocking or unable to access the tutorial site somehow??
These tutorials look great, but my broadband is limited. How much broadband does it take to run them or what size are the files to download?
Hmm, that’s a good question Susan – we’ve never known or measured. And because they are streamed from Adobe’s servers rather than downloaded, there’s no real good way to check.
If you’re concerned about bandwidth usage we’d suggest (1) viewing at the smallest window size to save data, and (2) trying them out first from a computer at a local library or cafe where there might not be such a restriction.
If you’d like to download some tutorials, try our Photoshop Elements e-book and our Premiere Elements e-book.
Every time I click Play Now I get a 404 error message. What gives????
Just tested all the tutorial links and they continue to work with no problem on our end… Not sure why you’re having difficulty but you might try a different browser or computer, and make sure you’re not running anything on your system that could block your access to the site.
I bought Photo elements 10 but I have not opened it because I was told I could download it on a Mac and a PC.
But it does not say on the outside of the box that I can download it on more than one computer. I wish to be able to do this if I am going to keep the program. Is this allowed?
(I am sorry to send this twice I missed ticking the notify me box.)
Yes Carmel – Photoshop Elements 10 is a multiplatform product and a single purchase will run on both Windows and Mac.
can i download the videos
Welcome Martha, the videos are streaming-only, but please see this previous response to Susan above for some ideas…
Yes. Open your file of images. Hold the Alt key and double click on a image. This brings up the Properties menu. It tells you what Elements version it is set to open in. Next to this is the Change button. Click on it and it brings up a menu where you can choose the new version of Elements (assuming it is installed). Click on it and click Apply in the Properties box then OK. It will now open when chosen in the new version.
Or if you call up the new version, select the image in your file and then go up to FILE and choose Open With (choose the new version) and it will open. I have version 2 and now am using 10. The above works for me. Not sure there is a way to do all at once.
