In Photoshop Elements 9 Essential Training, Jan Kabili highlights the key features of this comprehensive image organization and photo enhancement application. She shows how to correct and enhance photographs, and how to organize a growing collection of digital photos. The course also explains how to use photos in creative projects like photo books, calendars, and greeting cards, and how to share work online and in print. Exercise files accompany the course.
Another new Guided Edit in the Fun Edits category is the Lomo Camera Effect. This effect mimics the results of specialty film cameras that produce high contrast photographs with shifted saturated colors. I've opened this photo into Guided Edit from the Organizer, or I could do that from the Editor as I've explained. Then I'll go to the column on the right side of Guided Edit, I'll find Fun Edits, and I'll click on the first one, the Lomo Camera Effect. That opens these instructions with a roll over example and the steps are pretty straightforward.
The first step is to shift the color to resemble a cross processed photograph. Cross processing is an alternative color darkroom technique in which film intended for developing in slide chemistry is processed in photo negative chemistry instead, giving you an unusual and highly saturated color like this that you'll see when I click Cross Process Image. If I want a more intense version of this effect, I could click this button again, but I am going to leave it as it is. The next step is to apply vignetting at the corners of the image.
This will darken the corners to mimic the effect of the lens on a Lomo Camera. I'll click Apply Vignette to add that darkening effect. I can still go back up to the Cross Process Image button if I want to and click to intensify the color effect. If I think I've gone too far, I can reset at any time by clicking the Reset button at the bottom of the column, and that removes all of the effect and I can start again, clicking Cross Process Image, and then clicking Apply Vignette, and when I'm finished, going down and clicking the Done button.
All that's left to do is to close and save the image by clicking this X at the top-right of the Document window as you've seen me do it several times now. The Lomo Camera Effect is a quick specialty effect with clear instructions in Guided Edit. The results look slightly different on every photo. So you'll have to experiment with your own photos to find one on which you like this effect.
