For the more general question, "Is photoshop elements good enough for website mockups?", it is good enough. For web work, Elements is surprisingly adequate - it's got most of the key features in some form, including layers. Most of the differences between full Photoshop and Photoshop Elements are about convenience, speed and workflow: so the money for full ...

Well, upon some investigating, it appears that this is an intentional limitation of Photoshop Elements. As of PE10, there is still no support for layer groups. So you'll need someone with Photoshop to remove all layer groups before saving, as PE won't allow you to edit individual layers inside a layer group. Luckily though, someone has made, for PE7, a set ...

For the type of burst that you are doing, I would do this: Select Shape Tool and this shape ( One of the default shapes ). Place it in the document center ( Ctrl + A > v and then align vertical and horizontal centers ). Top menu Filter > Blur > Gaussian blur... ( or you can do this after step #5 if you want.. Or not at all, if you want sharper ...

I have not tested this but I came across this while doing some searching: 1 First make sure your folders are not "hidden": Click on "Start" and choose "My Computer." (Vista users: choose "Computer.") When a window pops up, click on the Tool menu at the top and choose Folder Options. When the Folder Options dialog box comes up, click on the ...

All you need to do is in Firework to use LIVE FILTERS: - click on the bitmap - in the Properties panel, select Filters -> Adjust Colors -> Color Fill - Select the color you want, and you're done

It depends what look you want to achieve and what you will be using it for. If you want realistic-looking bills and coins, then you should use a photo-editing software, like Adobe Photoshop. Adobe Photoshop Elements or other editing software may work if it has a decent warp tool. I think the best way to create the floating look would be to use a warp tool ...

The ceiling is indeed a rounding issue -- it's a limitation of storing pixel values as 8-bit integers. In Photoshop CS2, using decimal values rather than hex and looking at one channel for simplicity: The value of the pixel appears to be given by: NewValue = RoundToInteger( (CurrentValue * (1 - InkOpacity)) + (InkValue * InkOpacity) ) When ...

Select the rectangular marquee tool, then change the Style to Fixed Size. You should now be able to use the Width and Height boxes and fill in a set size. Now, every time you make a rectangle it'll be the same size.

Well, you can do this pretty easy. Have a background image Go to Create new fill or adjustment layer > Solid Color Select a color Click on the Layer Mask and take the Brush tool, choose black as the foreground color(1) and set it's hardness to 0 and it's opacity to 10-15% (or whatever makes you happy) and adjust the brush size. Start painting where you ...

Yes, Photoshop Elements does layers. Here's a link to Adobe's documentation on it. Go to Windows > Layers to activate the Layers panel.

I'm not sure whether this should actually be just a comment, but the reason you're getting blurred, slightly jagged edges, is because you're using the line tool on a fairly low resolution image and are zoomed in. Try changing your zoom to 100% and see if the jaggedness remains. If you need more detail, then consider chaning the resolution of your image (...

This is a quick, easy way that I've found to remove a white background: 1) Use the Quick Selection Tool (w) and paint around the inside of the object that you wish to isolate from its background. You might need to go in and manually deselect some areas, by holding down ALT while you paint. 2) Click on Refine Edge at the top of your screen and adjust your ...

So the question is different and the thought process is different but once you get to a really high level of understanding you'll know that the process is the same as this question: How do I blend a black-background fire image in Photoshop? Most of the time its people wanting to remove the black or white background and leave the rest but the premise is the ...

I'm guessing that you are working with a file format such as gif or png that uses (or can use) a colour table and has less than 24 Bit colour depth. Check if you have RGB or CMYK checked under Image > Mode (Thats in Photoshop - don't know about PS Elements). Set to RGB or CMYK if it is set to Index.

First, you need to select all the pixels. Because they're all one color you can select all the blue pixels: Select > Color Range. (Other ways are Select > All, or ctrl + lClick on the layer's thumbnail. More complex images may need different selection methods like the Magic Wand tool, Quick Select tool, chroma key, or using channels to make a selection.) ...

Find your original image and add it back to your Photoshop file. I see you have it on your background layer. Then enjoy using LAYER MASKS when you need to cutout something; at least you can modify your selections whenever and however you want. You should really use layer masks. You will probably need to reselect the portion you cut out, add it to ...

Seems to me that the yellow eye texture is used without alpha/transparency, and merely replaces the normal eye texture. Another part of the problem is that Photoshop Elements doesn't let you adjust channels. The transparent areas in textures is usually due to an "alpha channel", which is like a mask for the entire image, but is stored as a fourth channel. (...

Save the image as ".png", and you have to disable all the layers except the your mom's layer.

From adobe forums: ...if the file is a CMYK file you won't work well with that in PSE, and if the file contains composite layers or layer sets/groups you will need an add-on to be able to view the folder contents in PSE... and also ...PSE will let you save as a pdf, but it's a very basic kind of pdf, lacking much of the info that a print shop ...

I'm not sure if it works in Elements as in PS. But I would try Ctrl + click on the image of layer where is the oval so u will get the same selection as is the picture and then make this the mask for the background picture.

I don't use Elements but Adobe has never supported customized interface icons, as far as I can remember. The only UI adjustments (aside from your Workspace) is the application-wide light/dark adjustment.

Please check if your fixed crop width and height dimensions are set in the options bar. If they are, then remove them, and it should be good.

It's intended and more of a math concept than anything else. Think about when you multiply 1% x 1% x 1% etc., you will always get a number that is infinitely smaller. The same concept can be applied to colors / opacity. Meaning there will be a limit, which, in "color" or "hex", is your #d5d5d5

What Carol was alluding to is, since the file is a Photoshop .pat file, you must have photoshop to open the file. The actual pattern is simply a black tile. I've attached a transparent PNG of the tile here. You could simply grab the tile and recreate a pattern in Fireworks or Elements.

I guess you could copy the part of the image you want to resize into a new image; resize that image using "Nearest Neighbor" interpolation; then copy it back into your original image. But that doesn't help if you need to rotate. This might just be one of the features that Elements leaves out...
