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.
Here is a quick new Guided Edit that really deserves to be in the Fun Edits category. That's the Pop Art Guided Edit. With an image opened here in Guided Edit, I'll click Pop Art in the column on the right. That opens these instructions. I can choose between two different styles of Pop Art. I'm going to select the one on the left first by clicking its button. Then I'll just walk through the rest of these simple steps. First, I'll convert the image to bitmap mode by clicking the Convert Image mode button. That takes out all the color and all the tones, except for pure black and white.
Then I'll add color by clicking the Add Color button. Then I'll duplicate this image three more times each with a different color by clicking Duplicate Image. There is the result. At this point, if I like this, I would click Done. Then I would save and close the image, but I'm going to reset it, so I can show you the other style of Pop Art. I'll click the Reset button to go back to ground zero. Then I'll come up to the Choose a Style area. I'll click on the button for the style on the right. Walking through these steps, I'll first posterize the Image, which reduces the number of colors giving it a graphic look.
Then I'll add this Neon Glow effect. Then I'll click Duplicate Image to make three more copies all in different colors. I'll click Done. Then I would save and close the image as I've done with all the Guided Edits. So that's a way to get this quick poster like effect from a photograph using the Pop Art Guided Edit.
