(Music Plays) Hi! I'm Jan Kabili, Senior Trainer at lynda.com, and this is Photoshop Elements 8 for Mac Essential Training. Photoshop Elements 8 is at heart an image editor, a program that you can use to correct, adjust, and enhance your digital photographs, and Elements 8 comes with Adobe Bridge CS4, an image viewer and organizer that you can use to manage and find your files and open them directly into Elements.
Elements 8 has some new enhancements, including a Recompose tool, that you can use to change the orientation of your photographs, and Photomerge Exposure, a feature that will help you to take the best exposures from a number of shots and blend them together into one perfect final image. I'll show you how to use some other tools that are new to Elements 8 for Mac, like the Smart Brush tool and the Detail Smart Brush tool that allow you to adjust isolated portions of an image. I'll even cover how to share your photos with others as single printed images, as full-fledged online web galleries and as PDF slideshows.
