I have always been a fan of Adobe Photoshop. Ever since I started learning Photoshop techniques about 20 years ago I have been infatuated with the idea of manipulating photos. More recently I started doing video editing as well. I knew the basics of Photoshop but just discovered how powerful Adobe has become in the world of imaging with the latest in photo-tech, Adobe Photoshop Elements 14.

I love taking photos – just the other day I was in my children’s kindergarten class taking pictures for their Halloween party. I loved MOST of them, but some had some lighting issues – like this one that ended up very underexposed due to my error:


I could barely make out my children in this picture. I assumed it was trash but instead of deleting it from my camera I decided it would be the perfect photo to test out my new Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 program. And I am glad I did:


I was shocked and impressed that I actually got some cute little faces to show up, simply by putting the “auto fix” feature on. It did all of the work for me! As an added bonus, Elements 14 has super easy editing features built-in, perfect for novice and pros. Plus Elements 14 will auto-detect who’s in the photos and organize them all for you.


…so photos like this one won’t be lost. You can still share them with your friends on social media, blogs, and email…


 I have also been dabbling in video (like I said), and I was using a different (and frustrating) program until Photoshop Premiere Elements 14 was sent my way. What took me well over 2 hours to do on my old program took about 25-30 minutes on Premiere Elements 14. Check out this video I made – although the music is YouTube license, the editing is all Photoshop Premiere Elements 14.
