In this course, author Jan Kabili introduces the photo organizing, editing, and sharing features of Adobe Photoshop Elements 10, the less expensive version of Photoshop that’s ideal for casual photographers who want to achieve professional results. The course covers importing, organizing, and finding photos with the Organizer. It explains how and when to use each of the editing workspaces—from the simple Quick Fix and Guided Edit workspaces to the Full Edit workspace for enhancing your photos—including making photo corrections, retouching, compositing images, and adding text. The final chapter offers creative ways to share photos with Elements, including print projects like greeting cards, calendars, and books, emailing photos, and posting them on Facebook and Flickr.
One of the new Guided Photo Edits in Elements 10 is the Orton effectm which adds a dreamlike glow to an image that's popular in portraiture today. The Orton effect is located in the Photography Effects section of the Guided Photo Edit workspace. I will click the Orton Effect here and that displays some simple instructions for applying and customizing an Orton effect. You see what an Orton effect does by rolling over this example. So there is the original image and there is the same image with the Orton effect.
To add an Orton effect to my photo, I will click Add Orton Effect, and then I will customize the effect using the Increase Blur, Increase Noise, and Apply Brightness sliders to taste. When I am satisfied with the result, I'll click Done, and then I would close and save the image, as I showed you how to do in the first movie in this chapter. The Orton effect is one of a number of creative Guided Edits. When you have time to experiment, give a try to some of the other creative Guided Edits that you will find in the Photography Effects and Photo Play sections of the Guided Photo Edit workspace.
